Write Hope

I wasn't going to post this morning because I'm rushing off to a big school visit.  But the devastation in Japan has been on my mind, as I'm sure it's on everyone else's.  When I saw that Rachael Harrie and some friends had gotten together to do something to help, I wanted to join the effort and spread the word to anyone else who might be interested.

Rach, along with Marieke, Luna, Tessa Quin, and Amanda Milner have formed Write Hope.  Here is the plan:

"Right now we’re working hard to set up a charity auction, auctioning off all things kidlit. ARCs, books, critiques, swag. Donations are stacking up and we’ve only just started!

Over the next couple of days we’ll post details of the auction on the blog: the when, the how, the what.

Write Hope is a very proud sponsor of the Save the Children emergency relief fund for Japan.

Please, please help. Spread the word. Follow along at Write Hope. Take part in the auction. Spread the word.

As we said on Write Hope: Together we can move mountains.

Thank you!"

 If you are a writer (or anyone else) with something to offer the auction, please let them know.  If you have nothing to auction but would still like to help, please consider spreading the word and bidding when the time comes.

There but for the grace of God...


  1. Oh, we just made donations to Red Cross and Doctors without Borders, but I will definitely support this as well! Thanks!

  2. Hi Susanna, thank you so much for your kind words and for helping to spread the news about Write Hope.




I love to hear from you and try to respond to every comment. Please share your thoughts!
