KidLit Cares: School Skype Gift Bag from Author Laurel Snyder!

Auction #6: School Skype Gift Bag from Laurel Snyder

Welcome to KidLit Cares, an online talent auction to benefit the Red Cross relief effort to help communities recover from Superstorm Sandy. Agents, editors, authors, and illustrators have donated various services to be auctioned off to the highest bidder, with donations being made directly to the Red Cross disaster relief fund. You can read more about KidLit Cares here. Now, on to the auction!

Author Laurel Snyder has put together an amazing School Skype Gift Bag for KidLit Cares.  She’s offering one lucky bidder ALL of the following:

-One skype visit (up to an hour) for author talk and Q&A with Laurel

-A selection of  TEN of Laurel’s books, for use in a classroom library or as gifts for students (This can be ten copies of a single title, for use with a book club, or assorted titles – winner gets to choose!)

Opening Bid: $20

Auction Ends: Friday, November 9, 2012 at 10pm EST. (Any bids submitted in comments after that time will be void.)

If you’d like to bid on this auction, check the current high bid and place a higher bid by leaving your name and bid amount in the comments, along with some way to contact you (email, FB or Twitter…I’m not fussy.) Winners will be notified when the auction ends and should be prepared to make an online donation to the Red Cross Disaster Relief fund in the amount of the high bid at that time.  After you’ve made your donation, you’ll forward your receipt to me, and I’ll put you in touch with the person who donated the service you won so that the two of you can work out the details about how and when.   All services will be provided at the convenience of both the person making the donation and the auction winner, but this should happen within three months of the auction’s end unless something else is agreed upon by both parties.

Good luck, and thanks for bidding!

    Kate:
    I think this is an amazing thing you are doing. I would like to bid Seventy-five dollars ($75.00).
    I love this book and I talked with a teacher today who would be thrilled to Skype with Laurel.

    Our scheduled return to school is Friday, November 2…hopefully. Superstorm Sandy has left devastation in the small Warren County, NJ district where I am employed as a librarian/media specialist. I think this opportunity to “win” a Skype visit from Laurel Snyder as well as ten signed books will be a real pick-me-up for our kids. I would like to bid $100.00 in the hopes of winning this auction. I appreciate the opportunity to not only help other victims of Sandy but the kids at GMMS. Thanks and what a great opportunity!

    BID: $100.00
