Throw a DIY Pizza Party

Want to use your love of pizza to help amplify youth voice? Host a D.I.Y. Pizza Poetry Party and fundraise on behalf of Big Class. The funds you raise will sustain the Pizza Poetry Project at-large, ensuring the work of over 700 students is shared across New Orleans.

Here's how:

Step 1. Click here to set up your individual fundraising page 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 your version of a Pizza Party for your supporters. You can invite your friends over for some delicious pizza and savory poems, or put your own spin on it. In the past parties have ranged from pizza and board game nights among friends to casual lunches at the office. Even if you don't have time to throw a in-person party, you can still create 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).
