Since Hurricane Irene hit at the end of August, many of those affected still need assistance. So four awesome writers got together to run an online auction to help fund Hurricane Irene's relief efforts. The auction is called Read for Relief. Raised funds will go to the American Red Cross. Items up to be auctioned include signed books and critiques.
I think the organizers are still accepting auction items, so if you're an industry professional and want to donate a service or product, check out the web site.
