The amazing Kate Messner has once again launched KidLitCares, in order to benefit those who have suffered through Hurricane Harvey along the Gulf Coast.
A huge number of authors and illustrators and their agents and editors – almost 200 total! – have offered services to those who make a tax-deductible donation to the American Red Cross. [Edited to add – you can choose to donate to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund if you prefer.] Services range from authors, editors, and agents who will review manuscripts, to authors who will donate their books plus Skype visits to libraries or classrooms. There are many opportunities for you to donate, feel great about helping – and benefit your students and/or your career.
I’ve donated a Skype visit and set of my books, and would really love to visit your classroom or library and send you books (and more – tell me you read this post when you bid and I’ll throw in a bunch of cool swag and extras.)
Please visit the site and bid on these amazing offerings. The auction ends Tuesday, September 5 at 9pm EST. And, this former Texan thanks you from the bottom of her heart.
Thank you for posting this, Janet. Though I have family in this area, they have fared better than many people, sadly.
I’m happy to help, Linda – this breaks my heart as so many people I know have been hurt. And now here comes Irma. I’m glad your family are ok.
