Write Hope

Overwhelmed.  That is the general feeling out there when it comes to the tragedy in Japan.  Everytime I'm faced with an image of the devestation, my heart is heavy and my mind is spinning.  How can a people and a nation face disaster of such astounding scale?  Too often in the past few years this has come up.  And we are often faced with the question - how can we help?

Some of my amazing blogger friends have decided to get active about it.  Marieke, Rach and Luna have put together a blog called "Write Hope" and they are going to be putting on an auction to benefit Save the Children's emergency relief fund.

Do me a favor and pop on over there.  They are in the process now of collecting donations and organizing the auction.  If you can contribute in any way, please consider it.  It is a great opportunity to come together as a writing community and put something positive out into the world.

  2. I am going to participate too. You should also check out the Writers for Red Cross auction. I'm sure more will pop up as we go along. It feels good to do something, however small it may seem.
