Haven't seen anyone post about this yet, so in case you haven't heard about the auction:

From the site: "Authors Shannon Hale and Mette Ivie Harrison have mobilized book people to donate items for an epic online auction. You will find one of a kind offers, critiques, art, books, personalized visits, and unique events from our generous helpers. All the money after administrative fees will go to Lifting Hands International, a charity that gets life-saving supplies directly to refugee camps."

In order to bid, you'll need to go to this link to register. This makes sure that you'll be notified if there's an increase on an item you bid on, and will also help with billing at the end of the auction.

Here's a link to all the wonderful items up for bid (listed alphabetically by person donating). So many wonderful items to bid on!

There's also a package filled with sheep from me!
My item is here: http://events.lite.readysetauction.com/writingforcharity/refugeeauction/catalog/item/106

There are 4 days left to bid on most items, and some items have a buy now option if you want to make sure it's yours.
