Auctions to benefit victims in Japan

There are several auctions going on to benefit the victims in Japan

Children's Authors and Illustrators for Japan is conducting an auction during the next few weeks to raise funds for the earthquake and tsunami victims in Japan. (Money is donated directly to the charity organization--they suggest UNICEF.)
"Items include signed books, advance reader copies, artwork, critiquing services, book-related swag, author visits, or the chance to name a character in an upcoming book."
Go here to see this auction.

Writehope is another online site where writers and other publishing professionals are auctioning off books and critiques. This auction will donate money to the Japan Earthquake and Tsumani Children in Emergency Relief Fund.

Writers for the Red Cross is another place with an auction this month. More books. More critique services. Lots to choose from.

Authors for Japan
(in the UK) raised over 10,000 pounds with their auction!!

Thank you to all who organized and donated to these fund raising efforts.
