Fandom for No Kid Hungry - Day 3

We’re on day 3 of Fandom for No Kid Hungry and I’m pleased to say things are looking very promising. We’ve raised $100 already and the list of authors who have signed up to contribute is nothing short of dazzling. Windchymes, Maggie’s Gutter, Amethyst Jackson, beegurl12, Tkegl, Belle Dean, CaraNo, bornonhalloween, and many more have very graciously agreed to write for our cause. Check out rest of the participating authors here.The list is growing by the minute. At the last count, we were at 50 and counting. This sure will be a compilation worth owning!

People who are making this possible deserve a huge round of applause too. Kitsu Shel and ysar are devoting their time, money, and endless energy to bring it all together. Kelly Provence, Pixie Dawn, OcSickGirl, and Le Crepuscule are doing miracles with PR. It’s such an honor to be a part of this team.

You can help too! Whether you are a reader, writer, beta, or graphic artist, you can donate your skills to help us move forward. If you are unable to contribute anything tangible, you can still help by getting the word out. Tell your friends, follow/retweet us on twitter, “Like” us on FaceBook. Every little thing will count and go a long way to ensure that our children are fed and in good health.

Thank you!

Fandom for No Kid Hungry

Ysar and Kitsu Shel have recently asked me to be part of a very worthy cause of aiding the No Kid Hungry initiative. Mobilizing industries and individuals to promote sustainable change, this timely initiative benefits millions of children directly by bolstering food programs in every community across the United States and steps up to aid international efforts in times of crisis.  

Add your voice to the national movement of people committed to ending childhood hunger in America. For a donation of $10, you’ll receive a rich and enthralling compilation of one shots or outtakes from your favorite authors who have come forward to lend a hand. We already have such luminaries as Kitsu ShelLissaBryan, Edward’s Eternal, and Lady Gwynedd, and it’s only day 1 of the sign up!

Keep checking back to see who else is joining the ranks to make sure there’s food on the table for every child in the US. If you are outside of the US and would like your contribution money to have impact close to home, you can donate to Oxfam

Go to the Fandom for No Kid Hungry site Ysar has built to run the operation. You'll find all the details there.
