Auction for Standing Rock

The first two rounds of the auction, we raised $510.00. The holidays are coming up, and hopefully we’ll be able to buy gifts for our writer-y peeps AND help standing rock too. Next round of the Auction will END on December 23rd, 2016. Items are live now, but more will hopefully be added as they’re donated. I will continually accept new donations as long as the Standing Rock Sioux need our help. Each auction item will expire on a specific date listed on top of the page. I need donated goods and services (signed copies of books are great, ecopies of books, critique packages, editing packages, cover art packages, anything and everything that we can get that writers might want to help with their work.)

Please fill out the form with what you can donate to the auction. We NEED to pass the word on this so that the entire writing community can do what we actually CAN to enact change. This is one way of doing that.

The way this works is that the winning bid will go to one of a list of confirmed sources that help Standing Rock. You will send an emailed, screenshot receipt of payment to the person donating the service.

PLEASE get the word out to agents, writers, editors, etc that we need donations for this. Standing Rock needs our help, because they’re just on the front line of this. They’re hurting, protesting, for not just themselves but for anyone who needs clean water to drink. When, (not IF as we’ve seen repeatedly) the pipeline bursts the water that flows into the Mississippi river will also be polluted. This is everyone’s problem.

Thank you so much for helping.
