What is a halo? What is the public donor thank-you page?
We use halos to recognize our very important participant donors. When you give to our nonprofit, you will receive a halo (like this one: ) on your NaNoWriMo.org site profile. Halos will not currently appear on the NaNoWriMo preview site.
Donors also have the option of being listed on our "Brought to You By" page.
Do I still get a halo if I opt out of physical donor thank-you gifts?
Yes! You will still get a halo and a spot on the public donor thank-you page if you choose not to receive physical donor gifts.
How do I donate on behalf of a friend or gift a halo to another participant?
When placing a donation order, just include a friend's username to gift them with a halo.
Each donation order = one halo, but you may add as many to your cart as you like.
Can I send a donation directly via PayPal?
Please note that direct PayPal donations do not qualify for halos, site recognition, or donor gifts.
How do I donate by check or money order?
Please make your check or money order payable to "National Novel Writing Month," and mail to:
