Charity Auction -- love without boundaries

fellow writer julie kenner has been working on this wonderful fundraiser for months. The 10-day auction launches today, October 4.

Love Without Boundaries is
a nonprofit organization dedicated to helping orphaned children in China. The idea for the fundraiser came to Julie only days after she and her husband submitted a Letter of Intent to adopt Chu Yongchen, a little girl born with a cleft lip and palate living in the Chuzhou Social Welfare Institute in the Anhui Province of China.

you can reach the auction through julie's site:

Here you will find hundreds of signed books, along with critiques from editors and best-selling authors. I glanced through some of the donations and noticed that my editor at NAL is donating a 3-chapter critique.

Thanks Anne for the heads up. This is the first time I've heard of the foundation. It sounds like a great one! I'll have to keep my eye on a few of these auctions.

you're welcome, tami!

mai wen and angie: i agree -- a great cause and great organization. i hope they do really well. last time i looked it seemed the critiques were the donations that were making money.
