Your Generosity Astounds Me–Thank You

  • By: Jessica Faust | Date: Jul 04 2018

As most of you now know, on June 21 BookEnds took up the initiative to help support kids separated from their parents and being held at the border by raising money in the best way we know how–offering query critiques. The money we raised will be divided between a number of organizations through Act Blue.

To say we are overwhelmed with the response is putting it mildly. Overwhelmed and awed. In total, we received 68 donations and query critiques with many of you donating more than the minimum $50. The total donation was just short of $4,000.

The critiquing has already begun and we are working hard to get our feedback to writers as quickly as possible.

Today, while many of us celebrate Independence Day I will take a special moment to consider how hard our ancestors and many of us now, fight for the freedoms we are so lucky to enjoy.

Thank you, thank you, thank you!

    That’s amazing and proves that everyone can help those worse off than themselves. It just takes a little thought, a big heart, and often time you would spend doing something similar anyway.
    Congratulations, to of all and happy Independence Day to all my American friends.

    That’s fabulous. And I saw on twitter how the generosity extended past just the donation of money. It’s heart-warming to see.

    No, thank YOU! What a really wonderful idea! Reminds me of how much good there is in the world (even though it seems the opposite some days)!
