The Story

Big Class is a nonprofit creative writing organization dedicated to amplifying youth voice, and Pizza Poetry is one of the ways we do it. Working together with some of the best pizza joints in town, Big Class publishes poems on pizza boxes for delivery and pick up on a single day in April. This year's project will happen on April 21st.


We need your help! Want to use your love of pizza to amplify youth voice? The Pizza Poetry Challenge is Big Class's peer-to-peer fundraising effort to raise $5,000 to sustain and grow the Pizza Poetry Project at-large, ensuring the work of over 700 students is shared across New Orleans.


Show our students what it means for a community to come together and rally for youth voice by donating to one of the fundraisers below or setting up your own fundraiser on behalf of Big Class.  

Step 1) Click the "set up your fundraiser" button to create a team profile on Crowdrise
Step 2) Get 20 friends to donate $25 dollars each to your team's profile via Crowdrise
Step 3) On or before April 21st, throw a fundraiser on behalf of Big Class. In the past fundraisers have ranged from adult coloring book parties to causal lunches in the office. Even if you don't have time to throw an in-person fundraiser, you can still set up a team and invite people to donate to Big Class.
Step 4) Win prizes! Exciting adventures will be up for grabs in the following categories: highest fundraiser, fundraiser with the largest # of unique donations, best team name, & most creative party (as judged by our youth and teen interns).
