I’ve posted a couple of times about the Brightspirit Relief Fund charitable auction that I’ve been working on, which is being held in memory of a 10-year-old girl named Emmy Cherry who lost her life, along with both of her parents, in a tornado that swept through central Arkansas. The auction is raising money for literacy, tornado and storm relief, and animal organizations, with a focus on the communities of Arkansas near Emmy’s home town.
I wanted to let you know that the auction is closing this coming Saturday, October 4, at 5pm Eastern time, so if you were thinking about bidding on any of the items, don’t delay much longer!
The auction has many autographed children’s and young adult books and other kidlit-related items, donated by a variety of authors (and others). These are some of the newer items that were added since I last posted here:
- Signed copies of Dragon Flight, Sun and Moon, Ice and Snow, and the forthcoming Princess of the Midnight Ball, donated by author Jessica Day George
