Authors Help the Philippines with an Auction

Text by Nora Vasconcelos

One more time the power of the written word takes action, this time to help victims in the Philippines who have lost everything after the terrible destruction caused over there by the Haiyan typhoon passed, on November 8th.

With the initiative Authors for the Philippines, people from all over the world can bid on different items donated by different authors, such as signed books, manuscripts and submissions critique and mentoring, a character named after you, writing courses, blog-to-book advice, editorial advice, original book illustrations, among other things, to add in total 484 items listed.

The auction, set by the author Keris Stainton, ends this Wednesday, November 20th, at 8 pm (GMT). All the money is going straight to the British Red Cross Typhoon Haiyan Appeal

This is the second time that Stainton has set up an auction to help the victims of a Natural disaster. In 2011, she established Authors for Japan to help people in Japan, after an earthquake and a tsunami slammed that country. That time, 12,000 British Pounds were collected and donated to the British Red Cross for them to help the Japanese Victims.
