Publishing Community Raises Funds for the Red Cross

Authors, agents, editors, booksellers, and book blogs have banded together to support The Red Cross this month with Writers for The Red Cross.

Follow the individual links above to see the participating publishing professionals. In the first week, the group raised more than $2,000. You can donate at this link or visit a participating indie bookstore.

Here’s more about the online effort: “This online event celebrates Red Cross Month (March 1-31). It is intended to raise funds and awareness for the Red Cross and its work in communities across the country. We’re auctioning off publishing-related items and services donated by authors, publicists, agents, and editors. We’ll also have daily guest posts from authors about “What the Red Cross Means to Me.” All donors who give over $25 will also be able to select one free book from a range of books donated and shipped by publishers for the event.” (Via M.
