I think by now it’s impossible not to have heard about Japan and everything that’s been happening there. The devastation is overwhelming with so many people dead or missing, entire villages wiped away and the ongoing problems in the nuclear plants. I lived in Japan for a year, and studied the country, culture, and language for nine years, so the tragedy has hit very close to home for me.
With some of the most amazing people in the world (Marieke, Luna (Project Fraeya), Tessa Quin, and Amanda Milner) we formed Write Hope. 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!
Visit WRITE HOPE and meet our fantastic mascot Nozomi:
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.
