We have all seen the terrible footage coming out of Japan since their devastating 9.0 earthquake and massive tsunami on March 11th. The kidlit community is coming together to auction off donated items to raise funds for UNICEF, providing basic needs and services for children in affected areas (very kindly set up by author Greg Fishbone).
If you are a kids' book creator, writer, illustrator, editor, etc. please consider donating items or services to this very worthy cause. Here's the link: http://bit.ly/japanform
I am donating two sets of my Ginny Giles series (chapter books for eight to twelve-year-olds) and either a picture book editing and critique package OR copyediting up to 15,000 words. I will post auction details and where to place your bids for theses and many other items as soon as I have them.
Please spread the word. Twitter hashtag: #kidlit4japan
