Been thinking that you'd really like to do something to help the victims of the Japanese earthquake and tsunami but just haven't been able to decide how to go about it? Children's Authors & Illustrators for Japan can help you with that.
New items donated by authors and illustrators are going up on the auction site each day this week (And maybe beyond, since the auction lasts three week. I'm not sure about that.), and bidding will be open on each item for three to five days. Winning bidders will be directed to send their payments directly to UNICEF. But you can check out the details yourself.
You can also check out upcoming donors whose items haven't been listed yet, in case there is someone in particular whose donation you're interested in bidding on.
