Know what I love? The way when a lot of people donate a leeetle money to a good cause, it becomes a LOT of money for the cause.
Know what I hate? Adam Rex's moustache.
HERE, the fantabulous Bridget Zinn auction is going on. Bridget, you'll recall, got a book deal and a cancer diagnosis in the same month. She's doing ok, but her treatment is hellishly expensive. Happily, she has lots of fellow children's book people who don't know her and yet who care about her.
HERE, Adam Rex is raising money for schoolchildren. Last year he raised a bunch of funds for Philadelphia schools; this year it's Tucson schools. (And you have the option of donating to schools in YOUR immediate area.) Please, donate some money and help us make him shave.
(What I love most: that the community of children's book people is so generous. You, my readers and your friends and colleagues: you're awesome.)
