Members of the writing community have set up the following fundraising initiatives to assist people who have suffered such awful losses. Perhaps you can help.
WRITER’S AUCTION FOR QUEENSLAND FLOOD APPEAL STARTS TODAY
Writers from all over the world have donated books and services that are being auctioned to raise money for the flood appeal.
I have donated a 20,000 word manuscript appraisal, two copies of my YA novel, Letters to Leonardo and a 50 minute Heroes & Villains workshop for a school within a one hour radius of Melbourne.
You can bid for these items and heaps more great things and help the people of Queensland by going to http://authorsforqueensland.wordpress.com/

100 STORIES FOR QUEENSLAND
Another great writer’s initiative to aid the flood appeal is 100 Stories for Queensland.
They are producing an e-book and print anthology for sale and all profits will go to help victims of the Queensland floods.
Copyright remains with the authors and submissions are being considered in any genre as long as they are uplifting and contain messages of hope.
Stories need to be 500-1000 words and can be for any age group. Submissions close on 28th January 2011.
