News: KidLit Cares Hurricane Harvey Relief Effort Auction

in News by

Dear Readers…

The children’s lit community has an amazing online auction going on to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Hurricane Harvey and related flooding. Agents, editors, authors, and illustrators have donated various services to be auctioned off (edits, critiques, edits, free skype visits, signed books and booksets, and more). You can read more about KidLit Cares and take part in the auction here.

I’ve also provided more info in the rest of this post…

KidLit Cares began as an effort for Superstorm Sandy Relief in 2012, raising over $35,000 for victims of that disaster. Today, thanks to the organizing efforts of author Kate Messner, the children’s lit community is stepping up again for Hurricane Harvey Relief. Check out what’s being auctioned here.  It’s an online auction, with the services going the highest bidder, who then makes an online donation directly to the Red Cross Red Cross disaster relief fund and then forwards the donation receipt to Kate, who will put you in contact with the professional providing the service you bid on.




  1. Thank you for sharing and posting about Kate Messner’s auction – having participated in the Superstorm Sandy auction and being in awe of the money raised – I am looking forward to bidding and helping in a small way for the victims of Harvey to recover from this awful devastation.
