There’s nothing like receiving a romantic poem for Valentine’s Day. Executed correctly, a poem impresses your significant other much more than a simple card on the long-awaited lover’s holiday; it even counts as a gift. Poetry, however, is not an effortless art: generally, it takes years to perfect the skill and, even then, some poets are only able to produce a mediocre portfolio.
Luckily, Sigma Tau Delta, the English honor society, is hosting their “Love Letters for Literacy” fundraiser where they will sell pre-written Valentine poems available for personalization. Sigma Tau Delta will be selling these poems in the campus center on Tuesday, Feb. 12th from 12:30 to 2:00 pm. Poems can be printed on the spot! Small poems cost $1 and longer poems cost $2. New for this year, Sigma Tau Delta will be offering sorority-specific Valentine poems available for chapter orders.
All proceeds benefit the Adult Literacy League, whose vision is to “serve as the premier literacy resource providing education, training and information in Central Florida.” Arts and Sciences President of Sigma Tau Delta, Chelsea Cutchens ’13, says that she was “incredibly excited” about the success of last year’s “Love Letters for Literacy,” which printed forty five poems for students in just an hour and a half. Cutchens hopes that this year will “be even more successful.”
Let this be the year you send your significant other, friend, or chapter that priceless Valentine’s Day gift that they treasure forever, while also helping a great cause. If you cannot make it to the campus center on Feb. 12th but are interested in sending a Valentine, please contact Chelsea Cutchens at firstname.lastname@example.org.
