My friend and fellow blogger, Amanda, has a heart of gold. Upon hearing of all the destruction from Hurricane Sandy, she decided to host a review-a-thon this weekend to bring awareness to the devastation and to help raise money. She is not accepting pledges, but rather asking that people donate directly to the Red Cross and other organizations that are assisting in the cleanup efforts. As I type this post, she is on review number six. Those of you who write book reviews know how much work goes into each review.
Check out her website: Living, Learning, and Loving Life for her reviews and details of how you can help! You will find links to donate to the Red Cross and the Salvation Army as well as a link to sign up for blood donation, plus links to several other organizations collecting on behalf of the hurricane victims. You can even enter to win a $20 Amazon Gift Card, generously donated by Tweedle Dee and Tweedle Dave just for the event.
I hope everyone who is dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Sandy is now safe and warm. Thanks everyone for your support!
