Recently one of our own in the KidLit community, Betsy MacLeod, and her husband John, were dealt a cruel blow when John was diagnosed with ALS (Lou Gehrig’s Disease). Beyond the heartbreaking reality of his diagnosis, John and Betsy are faced with enormous and mounting medical expenses, many of which are not covered by insurance. To help them financially and in spirit, we are offering wonderful items through this online Kidlit Auction, which will run from March 17th to March 30th, 2016.
Signed books, artwork, manuscript critiques, vacation homes from Vermont and Cape Cod to Scotland, and more will help raise money to improve the quality of what remains of John’s life.
** IMPORTANT!*** Many of these items are suitable for non-writers, so please pass this on to your friends and family. Also, you can bid jointly on items. For instance, if you and three other friends are interested in a box of books, or one of the vacations, choose a point person to bid, pool your resources, and split what you win between yourselves!
