Publishers Join eBay Auction Fundraiser

Publishers Albert Whitman & Company, Chronicle Books, Gibbs Smith Publishers and Running Press have all teamed up to participate in National Doodle Day – a fundraiser for the NF Network, the non-profit people affected by Neurofibromatosis.

For the fundraiser, celebrities create doodles which are auctioned off on eBay, the proceeds going to the cause. The publishers have invited children’s book authors and illustrators to contribute doodles. Contributors include: Daniel Pinkwater, Annie Barrows, Tom Lichtenheld, Calef Brown, Peter Reynolds, Eric Carle, Jon Scieszka, Mo Willems and Lydia Bastianich.

You can check out the doodles at doodledayusa.org. The auction goes live on eBay on May 12th.

The publishers will help promote these auctions through in-store events in Chicago, Salt Lake City, and Sausalito.
