Leave a Mark Total + News for the Fall!

thanks Pictures, Images and Photos

Guess what everyone? The final amount that we raised for First Book is in and we wanted to pass along this article that they wrote up about it, with some comments from Chelsea and me.

Want to know how the idea first came to me?

Why did we name it Leave a Mark?

Why did Chelsea pick First Book as a charity?

And finally, how much did we all raise?

Read to find out:

Also, we have some other AWESOME news...Leave a Mark is not going anywhere. We are having more auctions this Fall and all the money will once again go to First Book. We'd love to have authors and other notable people volunteer to mark up a book, so if you want to help, we'll see if we have room. Get in touch!

Finally, thanks to Katie at First Book for being amazing and helping us every step of the way, to every author/person who marked up a book, to every person that bought a book, to every person that merely bidded, and last but not least...thanks Chelsea! :)
