To the WRITE HOPE volunteers, donors & bidders who rock, I salute YOU!

Are we not adorable?! I do believe i prefer myself this way. Our very own talented artist, Luna, drew this as a thank you to all of you who participated and helped us raise a fine chunk of change for the victims of Japan's tsunami.

And what was that fine chunk of change, you may ask?
Well I'll tell ya...
From the auctions...
We raised....
$10,351 !!

Woo! Hoo!!!
But wait! There's more!
That's right, we're not finished.
I mean why stop at $10,351?? Let's go higher!
The very talented Luna will make you your very own Write Hope t-shirt and book mark!

Here's the design. Lovely, right? And you get to choose the colors of the t-shirt and design!
So what are you waiting for?
This is not an auction so you're guaranteed to win!

I want to apologize for being absent on blogger and with my fellow Crusaders.
During the auctions for Write Hope I spent all my allotted Internet time Tweeting about Write Hope and then the chaos of spring came down on me full force and I am just barely coming up for air.
I am sorry Crusaders!

Now, if your a Vampire Diaries fan and haven't seen this weeks episode, turn away now.
Possible *SPOILER* coming up!
I swear to Klaus I will go APE SH** CRAZY and boycott V.D.!!
But I'm serious!
I don't even care that after your sweet, heartfelt moment with Elana, with those sad puppy dog eyes and your totally heart wrenching line, "I can't lose you." you went completely psychotic and forced your blood down her throat.
 Nope, don't care.
 I get it.
Desperate times.
Desperate measures.

♥I'm still Team Damon.♥

The response, not only from the bidders but the many who came forward to donate has been moving to say the LEAST. I absolutely ADORE this community of writers and feel honored to be a part of it.
Marieke said it well in this post. I couldn't agree more.
So if by some crazy chance you haven't heard of Write Hope, you HAVE to check it out. You won't be disappointed you did. ☺
