Genre for Japan - Bidding Open!

Limited access to the internet last week meant that I missed the chance to post about this when it all began. You've probably read everyone else's posts already but this is something really important and, as such, will be posted about again right here. I'm pretty sure you're all cool with that :o)

Genre for Japan is a science fiction and fantasy themed auction raising money for the Red Cross earthquake appeal in Japan. You've all seen what's going on over there and why our help is needed... Well, not only do you get to support a really good cause but you also stand the chance of coming out of it with some cool sci-fi and fantasy stuff. There's all sorts of stuff on offer (signed books, editing services and chances to appear in a book are only the tip of the iceberg) and there really is something for everyone. If you don't win what you're after then you can still donate via the 'Just Giving' page.

Bidding is open right now but only until the 3rd of April. Click Here to see what's on offer and other ways to make a donation. Kudos to Amanda and the gang for getting this going in such a short space of time as well; what you guys have done is amazing.

I had the same problem - I'd heard about GfJ but wasn't able to post in time. It's an excellent idea though, and I'll be keeping my eye on one or two things. It's awesome that they've raised over £6000 already too :D

It's a great idea! I just can't afford anything much at the moment, but I'll spread the word. I love Japan; I've been learning Japanese for just over a year now and I'm meant to be going to Tokyo September next year. Good luck Japan! がんばって、日本!
