Superstorm Sandy may be gone, but her trail of physical and emotional wreckage remains. Many residents are still without power, and damage estimates are in the tens of billions. 

If you're a book lover, here's a great opportunity to bid on a Kid Lit experience. You'll also be supporting a really good cause: The Red Cross Relief for Hurricane Sandy. Kid Lit Cares is an online auction, organized by authors Kate Messner and Joanne Levy. Writers, illustrators, and editors are auctioning off their talents to raise money for victims of Hurricane Sandy. Some items include a Skype or in-person visit from popular children's authors, or even naming rights to a character. 

Put a bid together with other parents, or with your book club. You could be a hero to your child, your school, and to the victims of Hurricane Sandy!

Round Two is now live, and it's not too late to bid. Lots of cool items being added from the minds of creative children's writers.

Check out Kid Lit Care's FB page and Twitter for the latest updates.

Feel free to pass this message along to every teacher, librarian, and book lover you know.

It's for a great cause.
