By now, you’ve all seen images and video of the devastation in Japan from the recent earthquake. You guys are seriously the greatest, most generous fans out there, and I’m going to offer you a chance to send some of that generosity around the world.
Folks – LET’S SPONSOR A SHELTERBOX!!
Between today and 9:00 PM CST on Friday, March 18, I’m asking you to make a donation in ANY amount–$1, $5, $10, $15, or whatever you can afford–to SHELTERBOX, the international organization that provides basic necessities (in a box!) to folks in crisis around the world.
Each Shelterbox contains items like a tent, a stove, cooking supplies, blankets, and children’s items, and can make surviving a crisis a bit easier to bear. [Read more.]
Each Shelterbox costs $1,000 US (including goods and distribution). Our goal: Raising enough funds between now and Friday to purchase 1 Shelterbox!
I’ll give away a SIGNED HARD BITTEN ARC to one lucky giver.* When you make a donation to Shelterbox using one of the links below, come back and identify your name and, if you’d like, the amount you donated in the comments on this blog post.
I’ll announce the ARC winner on Saturday, March 19. I’ll also get the ball rolling with a donation of $100. (I’ll also update the blog to reflect donations to date.) Only $900 to go!!
* – Please save your Shelterbox donation receipt for verification purposes if you’re selected as the winner.
