Bloggers/Authors/Companies- Donate to a Good Cause

Do Not Own

I want to thank everyone that has so far offered to donate something for the upcoming auctions for Kaylea and Daniel. Kristi from the Story Siren already posted about this in terms of Kaylea. However, there WILL be another benefactor of these auctions. His name is Daniel, and is a family friend of mine. He recently lost the thumb on his left hand (his dominant hand) and may even have to amputate the whole arm. A hunting rifle went off accidently and shot him in the arm...he is still going through surgeries. He's also the father of a baby girl. More will be posted about him and Kaylea when we have the official auction page ready. However, I wanted to let you all know a bit about him right now.

We're still looking for donations if anybody is interested in helping out. Here are some random ways you could donate-

Writers and Wannabe Writers - Critiques of some sort

Bloggers - gift cards. We could mix a few gift cards together and auction it all off together.

Authors - A chance to name a character in your next book, after them or they choose the name (within reason) OR put their name in the acknowledgements of your next book

Blogger/Author - Going to BEA? Donate a personal shopper experience...promising to take the winner's list of books they want and try and get a couple of them at BEA for them!

Blogger/Author - Signed books...merchandise...etc.

Companies - Donate a product!

These are some things I've seen around or came up with on my own. If you want to donate any of the above items (or anything else) please get in touch here: lauren51990 AT aol DOT com

The auctions will start in the beginning of May. There is no end date right now...depends on how many donations we get.
