Authors for the Philippines UPDATE

If you read my last blog post about our auction to raise money for the people of the Philippines, you might like to know how we got on.

In total, authors, illustrators and publishing professionals donated a stunning 498 items and raised....

wait for it...

£50,414!!

Thank you to everyone who donated or made a bid.  Your donations will be helping to save lives.

I'd also like to acknowledge authors Keris Stainton and Candy Gourlay, who organised the whole thing.  It was a huge amount of work but it sure paid off.  Well done guys!

If you haven't yet made a donation to the relief effort, please consider doing so now.  This Christmas, I'm sending e-cards and am donating what I would have spent on cards and postage to the Red Cross.  If you'd like to do the same, follow the link below.
