In 2011, following the Japanese tsunami, I set up Authors for Japan, an auction blog to raise funds, and was quickly completely overwhelmed by the response. After a week of little sleep, an interview on the radio, an article in the Guardian, 200 items donated by generous authors, £13,000 was raised.
I’m sure you’ll seen the terrible news about the Philippines following Typhoon Haiyan. And so we’re doing it again. The Authors for the Philippines site is live now.
If you would like to bid on any of the wonderful items already listed (more will be added in the coming days) bidding opens tomorrow at 8am (and closes on Wednesday 20th November at 8pm).
