Writer Unboxed + The Red Cross Auction = *15* Bloody Great Opportunities

Photobucket [1]Author Holly Tucker [2] was in touch with me several months back. She wrote:

I’m pairing up with the Red Cross for a book-focused online fundraiser during Red Cross Month in March. I’d love it if the Writer Unboxed gang jumped in with a few great donations for the cause!

And so it began.

Kath and I put out the call to our contributors, and the call was answered until we had a whole array of offerings: books and services and cool opportunities (oh, my!). We’re happy to announce that the WU gang has donated 15 items to be auctioned off over the course of five weeks. More good news: Bidding on week-one items starts today.

We sincerely hope that you’ll support this endeavor and bid on items of interest–not just items put up by WUers, but those put up by the many authors, editors, agents, publicists, booksellers, designers, marketers, and bloggers contributing to the auction [3]. Every cent earned goes to The Red Cross.

So what is WU donating, exactly? I’ll link to everything here, but only some of these items are available to bid on today (auction week noted at the end of the item’s description).

*4* Blog Mama Auctions:

*11* Monthly Contributor Auctions:

Will you help us spread the word? Tweet about it, FB about it, blog about it. And bid high (and often) at the Writers for the Red Cross auction site [3].

Thanks from all of us here at WU, from Holly Tucker, and from the Red Cross. Write on!
