There are lots of book-related initiatives taking place to help raise funds for victims of the Japan Quake. Take your pick of those below and choose one to support.
150 different book related auctions all housed under one roof. Lots of opportunities to get proofs critiqued and to win signed copies of books. This subset contains those auctions specifically relating to children’s and YA books
Are you an author or illustrator? Books That Help are going to publish a collection of stories, poems, and art honoring and celebrating Japan. One hundred percent of the proceeds will go to a charity currently working on the relief effort in Japan. You can contribute – find out how to here. Found thanks to the Pratham Books blog.
Are you an illustrator? Donate an illustration for Show and Tell’s auction. Full details here.
Another one for illustrators. Contribute to Illustration Rally’s Japan Tsuname Appeal. Full details here.
Please let me know of any other bookish efforts that are going on to raise funds, and I shall add them to the list. Also, there’s still time to bid on this stunning cherry blossom brooch made by my sister, all funds going to Global Giving.
