First of all, Happy St. Patrick's Day :D
May you wear lots of green, avoid plentiful pinches, and eat lots of corned beef (always a tradition at my house) :D
Now, on to something a little more serious. I came across this information on the blog of my awesome friend Bethany Wiggins. With all the devastation in Japan, I know many of you are looking for a way to help. And here it is :) Check out Write Hope, a blog set up to help the children of Japan. Here is what they have to say:
Welcome to Write Hope! We're an international group of Kidlit writers with a connection to Japan. Some of us have lived there. Some of us speak the language. Some of us love the culture. Some of us simply think Japan is exotic and mysterious.
We want to do our bit to help. To that end we have formed Write Hope. We're busy preparing everything now and over the next few weeks we plan to auction kidlit books, critiques, and other prizes for donation to the relief fund of our chosen charity Save the Children.
We'd love for you to be in too. Sign up, spread the word. If you have ARC's, books, critiques, swag to spare, pop us a mail. If you're a publishing professional, agent, editor, author, who wants to participate, pop us a mail.
If you want to help, pop us a mail.
Together we can move mountains :-)
So, if you'd like to do something to help, please check it out. I hope everyone has a beautiful and blessed day :)
