KidLit Cares: An Auction for Sandy Relief

KidLit Cares

From author Joanne Levy's website:

"People who write children’s books and work in this industry have a wide range of interests and talents. As authors, illustrators, agents, and editors, we do different jobs, and we love and create different kinds of books. But one thing we all tend to agree on is using your powers for good in the world.
Many of us watched with sadness as Sandy ravaged the East Coast on October 29th.  Damage estimates are in the tens of billions, and the heartbreak is impossible to measure. We’d like to do what we can to help, and that’s what KidLit Cares is all about."
Over the next couple of weeks, authors Joanne Levy and Kate Messner are mobilizing an incredible auction that will help raise money for the Red Cross. There is a current auction going on now, and another round will begin on November 12th. 
Just a sampling of items includes: many, many more wonderful prizes for writers, authors, and readers. 
Please do go check it out! There are chances to not only win some amazing prizes, but to help aid this recovery effort and provide resources to people whose lives have been impacted by this devastating storm.

  1. I read that many of the authors who wrote children's books managed to sell their personal copies and signed books for the sake of charity.
