It’s hard to believe that in just a few short months, it’ll be the one year anniversary of my aunts passing. The event that inspired me to launch an event – Books for a Cause – to support the Stand Up to Cancer movement in her honor & in honor of those who have also lost a loved one to cancer.
The first part of the fundraiser – a read.a.thon and the auction – brought in $1,220 for SU2C! That’s awesome!
I am so incredibly thankful for the support of so many authors and readers who have helped make this dream a reality!
Now that the holidays have passed, I am reopening the auction. There are a few items up for grabs now, but I am reaching out to authors & bloggers for more book & book related donations. If you’d like to contribute an item, please send me an email with what you’d like to contribute & an image – if possible – so that I can add it ASAP to the auction page. I can be contacted via email [hsheffield2011 at gmail dot com].
You can view the auction page HERE.
Also, if you’ve just come across the #BooksForACause auction, you can read my initial post from June 7, 2014 to read more about why I am doing this. Of course, if you’d like to make a monetary donation rather than bidding on an auction item, you’re more than welcome to do so. Donations can be made directly to Stand Up To Cancer by clicking this link.
I sincerely thank you for your support throughout this journey. Please help me spread the word by Tweeting, posting on Facebook, however you’d like to share. Use the hashtag! #BooksForACause. Also, if you’d like to feature this event on your blog, please let me know!
