For the second time this year I'm working with Nina from Fandom Gives Back. The last time was for Autism Speaks where FGB raised over $3600.
For those of you who aren't familiar with Fandom Gives Back it is an initiative created to unite Twilight fans to raise money for charity, mainly Alex's Lemonade Stand (ALSF). ALSF is a children's cancer research foundation, borne from the vision of Alex Scott (1996-2004).
So far they've raised almost $250,000 towards fighting childhood cancer through past events.
This year the goal is to raise just $15k. There will be a fanfic compilation available for a flat donation. So far there are over 60 authors but the more authors we have the more donations we will get.
Authors: I know some of you dabble in writing fanfic (you know who you are!), please consider submitting a story - more info here. For those just starting out it's a great way to get your name out there and for those who are well known it helps get donations to fight cancer!
Readers: If you are a fanfic reader (like myself) please consider donating - flat donation gets you the fanfic compilation. Here's the list of authors so far but there's still another few weeks to the deadline so there will definitely be more coming.
My role in this? I'm the compiler eg. the down and dirty of putting all the stories together in a nice book. The best part? I get to read everything first :) Love it when there's a great outtake I've been waiting for or a new author I hadn't heard of that is fabulous.
