Announcing the upcoming Stories for Kids auction…

…to benefit Palestine Children’s Relief Fund, a nonpolitical organization which brings children in need of medical care to the US for treatment, and also sends medical teams to the area to treat kids on the ground.

The book community is incredibly generous, and we are counting on that generosity to help these kids. We will be auctioning ARCs, signed book copies, character names (you could appear in someone’s book!), query critiques, and more, from all your favorite authors!

If you are an author (adult, YA, or children’s), an editor, an agent, or anyone related to the book community who would like to donate an item for the auction, please fill out the contact page on this website or contact me, Maya Chhabra, through Twitter DM’s at @mayachhabra. The auction will take place later this summer or fall.
