Writers on Rafts – another QLD Floods fundraiser

January 24th, 2011 at 9:51 am (After the Rain, Miscellaneous)

FableCroft has been able to donate books to two fundraising initiatives besides our own After the Rain ebook fundraiser. The first is the Authors for Queensland auction (which closes tonight!) and the second is the QLD Writers Centre “Writers on Rafts” raffle. More details!

About Writers on Rafts

Writers on Rafts is an initiative of Queensland Writers Centre and author Rebecca Sparrow to raise money for the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal. More than 150 Australian authors, including you, have pledged prizes.

  • To enter Writers on Rafts go to http://www.writersonrafts.com
  • Purchase as many tickets as you like in as many categories as you want!
  • Every ticket is one chance to win for a lucky person in every state and territory.
  • very dollar goes directly to the Queensland Premier’s Flood Relief Appeal to help victims of the Queensland floods.
  • QWC’s goal is to raise $10,000 through Writers On Rafts.
  • We will be conducting the draw on Friday, 25 February.

What you can do to help? Shout about it!

Tweet about it, spread the word on Facebook, your website, your email networks. If every author who has pledged support for Writers on Rafts inspires just 10 of their readers and fans to enter, we will be well on our way to our fundraising target.

We will be taking advantage of both social media and traditional media channels to promote Writers on Rafts.

Where can I get more info?

Information is available at http://www.writersonrafts.com. You can also email us at writersonrafts@gmail.com

The initiative is being coordinated by Queensland Writers Centre, but because our own building (the State Library of Queensland) has been affected by flood, we are currently not able to access our offices to answer the phone, so please use email for now.

After the Rain update 2

January 23rd, 2011 at 2:26 am (After the Rain, eBooks)

We’re creeping up slowly on $2000 in donations, which makes me pleased and proud. Donations have slowed right down now that the flood crisis has settled somewhat (in Queensland at least – or, at least, now the media have found other things of interest!), but they are still trickling in, and the cleanup in many areas will be slow and long. I’m so grateful to everyone who has supported, by donating and/or by transmitting the signal! Very much appreciated.

I’ve just made the second transfer of donations to the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal. For transparency, the receipt is below. I’ve now put through $1500 in total, and will probably not finalise the rest until February 15. Unless there’s a sudden rush on donations! :)

You’re welcome to donate via my original blog post, or both Wizard’s Tower Books (thanks Cheryl Morgan) and Weightless Books (thanks Gavin Grant) are kindly accepting donations as well.

Again, thanks everyone who has contributed!

After the Rain update

January 15th, 2011 at 12:42 am (After the Rain, eBooks)

The donations have been pouring in for the After the Rain special limited edition ebook, fundraising for the Queensland Flood Relief Appeal. We’re almost at $1500, which is brilliant after only two full days! Everyone who has donated should have received an email back from me with details for download. If you haven’t, PLEASE email me at fablecroft at gmail dot com.

I have made the first payment of monies to the flood relief fund. This will happen in bits and pieces as I transfer the money from Paypal. The first one is for $700, and the receipt is below. I’d like to share that even though Paypal takes a piece of every donation, my husband has volunteered to make up the difference from his company. There’s lots of reasons I love him :)

Thank you again to everyone who has donated and shared the link. Enjoy the book, and our appreciation :)
