BookNests Huge Charity Auction
I’ve posted about this fantastic book auction before but I want to draw attention to it again. For those who don’t know, Booknest is a Fantasy book review site and one of the reviewers there, Petros, has rounded up 100 (yes that’s right, 100) fantasy authors to donate signed books. These books are all up for grabs.
How do you get a chance to win some? By simply donating £1. That single pound will get you a chance to win one of six batches of 10 signed and personalised books delivered straight to your door. This lottery will be open until the 10th of January.
What about the remaining 40 books? Well they will be set up in more batches to be bid on, with all proceeds going to charity. Other than Worldbuilders, I can’t think of another charity auction where so many great books are available.
Where is the money going? All proceeds raised will be donated to Doctors Without Borders (aka Médecins Sans Frontières). They provide emergency medical care worldwide to people affected by conflict & disasters. Those who work with them are out there right now, while the rest of us are still recovering from holiday food overdoses. In fact they contacted Petros to actually thank him for arranging this:
We are so grateful that you are organizing the Booknest’s Fabulous Fantasy Fundraiser to raise funds for Médecins Sans Frontières. It sounds a really interesting project between readers and writers, with 100 authors pledging a signed copy of their work which can be won from New Years Day onwards.
It is individuals like you that ensure we can continue to provide emergency medical aid where it is needed most. Your hard work and effort shows solidarity with those we care for all over the world.
So it’s an excellent cause. And with the chance to win 10 personalised books for £1, what’s stopping you? You can click through and donate here
Thank you in advance to anyone who helps supports this fundraiser.
