Authors/Artist/Other: Will you donate?

2 Comments

Going through my blogroll I discovered this post over at Wands and Worlds.

On February 5, 2008, a terrible tragedy struck when a tornado swept through central Arkansas. Among those killed by the tornado were a beautiful 10-year-old girl named Emmy Grace Cherry, along with both of her parents, Dana and Jimmy. Emmy was a sweet, caring girl who loved animals and books, and wanted to be either an astronomer or a veterinarian. Her favorite author was Erin Hunter, author of the Warriors series. (Erin Hunter is a pen name for a team of writers who write the Warriors books: Victoria Holmes, Kate Cary, Cherith Baldry, and the newest Erin, Tui Sutherland. )

The result of the above, after a lot of support from the online community, is the creation of the Brightspirit Relief Fund. The Erin Hunter/s have donated six books, all signed by the original Erins, and they’re looking for more things to help drive donations to the fund.
Check out the link above and if you happen to have anything you could donate, or perhaps you would like to have your own auction and donate the proceeds, then please do so. Any help would be greatly appreciated on this.

(Don’t click the read more, there isn’t any more after this!)
