Charity Auction #4: Islamic Relief USA
Thanks to the trials of Windwitch, it’s been a while since I had the time to offer up my critiquing time in the name of charity. But here we are again!
This month, I want to raise money for the children displaced by ISIS. Why? Because despite my own country falling to pieces, there is still a massive war going on in the Middle East.
I was recently listening to the BBC World Service, and they were discussing Syria’s “Lost Generation” — an estimated four million Syrian children, who have no means of getting to school because of terrorism.
And it’s not just Syrians, of course, who are affected. Which is why we have to help in any way we can — and it’s why I have chosen Islamic Relief USA for this month’s charity auction.
What You Can Win
- A signed paperback of Truthwitch.
- A signed advanced copy of Windwitch.
- A 25-page critique!
- A 30 minute Skype chat to discuss the critique, publishing, whatever!
