Writers' Charity Auction to Benefit Hurricane Sandy Victims

The Washington Post: A water vapor satellite image
 of Superstorm Sandy on Tuesday, Oct. 30.
 (Stu Ostro/Facebook)
I've been glued to the television over the last few daysas I'm sure many of you havewatching the news as it reported on Hurricane Sandy. My heart goes out to all of you who were touched by the massive storm or who know people who were touched. I'll be keeping all the victims, survivors, and those affected in my thoughts as they work to recover and rebuild.

I love how the writing community always pulls together in times of crisis. Only hours after a massive disaster, people have banded together to raise money for the victims. Today is no different. Writer Jen Malone has organized a charity auction to benefit the Red Cross and victims of Hurricane Sandy. Lots of agents and authors have donated some really cool prizes, so make sure you pop on over and bid and help raise some much-needed money.

I'll see you there :)

How about you - were you affected by Hurricane Sandy?

The writing community is so amazing. I'll check it out, Rach. Thanks for this post :-)

Suzanne Furness said...

What a great idea. The writing community is fabulous. My thoughts are with anyone effected by the hurricane.

You are always such a giver Rach.

Heather said...

I wasn't directly effected but many of my friends were and my heart breaks for them. This is a great cause!

Claire Hennessy said...

Writers are the best, aren't they! Will definitely check out Jen's blog. Btw, I have featured you in a blogfest I am in. Thanks Rachael - love your blog :)

I just watched in dismay what little snippets I saw on TV. Awful stuff :(

I love how strong the bond of the writing community is. Safe from that storm in Australia (although we did have a wild one a couple of weeks ago that destroyed local markets--very sad).

I'm also touched that so many people named Anonymous took the time to visit your blog today and share relevant and helpful information to help take our minds of the important things in life ;)

Hi Rach. Just wanted to see how the Campaign creator was doing. I added a link here from my blog. (Though don't expect a stampede of new followers from it.) I'm noticing a lot of spam in your comments, might want to look into that. Also, hurricanes suck.

That's the fact, Jack: death is #@!!☆ smug and inevitable; alas! our demise shall befall U.S. all. Some go to the other side while most never return. If you wanna continue, girl, I'll explain how I actually saw the other side and returned...

CAUTION: Our 24-wildchild, flame-thrower, germ-warFAIR-blogs are a total wasteOtime ...yet, a total wealth of bottomless inferences, nuanced sophistication, and synonymous metaphors which shall creep stealthily across thy brain like the vivid, brazen dawn. And, frankly, I wouldn't be too concerned about what the bionic, bloated, whorizontal world thot about me, dear; I'd be much more worried about what JESUS shall say at the General Judgement.

First, why else does a moth fly from the night than to a bold, attractive candle Light? Don't let His extravagant brilliance be extinguished, girl. You're creative, yes? Then fly-away with U.S. to the antidote: apathy is the glove in which evil sticks his bloody hand.

Meet this ex-mortal Upstairs for the most extra guhroovy, pleasure-beyond-measure, party-hardy-reality-show-addiction 24/7 you DO NOT wanna miss, where the Son never goes down from a VitSee-ing, ultra-passionate-YOUTHwitheTRUTH in which you'll find nonillions X nonillions X nonillions... of deluxe-cubed-HTTP (<-- pi) opportunities for enveloping, engulfing excitement; where you'll looove an endless eternity of aplomBOMBs falling ALL over thy incredible, indelible cranium, as you'll have an XtraXcitinXpose with an IQ much higher than K2 resulting in an explosion of obscene exuberance, time without end.

Last, here's what the prolific, exquisite GODy sed: 'the more you shall honor Me, the more I shall bless you' -the Infant Jesus of Prague.

Go git'm, girl. You're incredible.
