Charity Blogathon for BARCC

Leave a comment

I just got an email from Matt Staggs regarding a blogathon that will be going on this weekend to help earn money for the Boston Area Rape Crisis Center. I’ll just post the important information here:

I’m doing a blogathon this Saturday, July 26 – posting to my
LiveJournal every half hour for 24 hours to raise money for the Boston
Area Rape Crisis Center. This is my sixth year blogathonning, and I
write spontaneous short fiction every year. It usually tends to have
an urban fantasy bent (as in fantasy in a city, not paranormal
romance), but this year, I’m taking a distinctly SF angle on it. For
24 hours, I’ll be in character as a xenoarchaeologist, trying to make
sense of precollapse Earth… with the help of over 50 artists who
donated “artifacts” to this project, including a few SF/F authors
themselves. All artifacts are being auctioned, with a story card.

It all goes down here: http://shadesong.livejournal.com
And the auctions are here: http://search.ebay.com/_W0QQsassZshadesong

And there’s a lot more info on my LJ about why I do this, and why BARCC.

So keep and eye out. There are actually some really cool things up for auction. Maybe they’d make a nice gift for a friend or family member. And just think, bidding is for a good cause!

So check it out!

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