Blogging for a Cure: Week #3

Week #2 of Blogging for a Cure was another smash success. Unfortunately, I was so busy last week that I didn’t get an opportunity to read all of the posts featuring Robert’s Snow artists. I intend to read all of the Blogging for a Cure features once my schedule isn’t so hectic.

You will find the schedule for Week #3 of Blogging for a Cure below. Every day some of the picture book illustrators who have created snowflakes for Robert’s Snow 2007 will be featured at different children’s literature blogs. Robert’s Snow is a unique fundraiser. The proceeds from its three 2007 auctions will go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute for cancer research. Read all about Robert’s Snow: for Cancer’s Cure here.

NOTE: I have linked to the blogs that will be posting features about the Robert’s Snow artists this week—not to the specific posts. Jules and Eisha of 7-Imp have created a special page that includes a list with links to all the Blogging for a Cure posts. Their list is updated every day.

WIN A PRIZE!!! I do hope you’ll stop by to read my Blogging for a Cure articles at Wild Rose Reader and to comment about the artists and their work. I have a special prize for some lucky person who leaves a comment at any of my six posts featuring a Robert’s Snow artist: a limited edition giclee print of an illustration from Grace Lin’s book Robert’s Snow! That’s right folks! Here’s a picture of the print that I picked up at the Child at Heart Gallery.

Each time you comment at one of my Blogging for a Cure posts about a Robert’s Snow artist, I’ll put your name in a hat. If you comment at all six posts, your name will go into the hat six times! The drawing will take place on November 19th, the day bidding begins on the first of three Robert’s Snow 2007 auctions.

I also have several consolation prizes for commenters who don’t win the “big” prize: five small prints of the Robert’s Snow mouse(mice).

Note to Blog Readers about Blogging for a Cure: When Jules of 7-Imp put out her call in September for bloggers to interview/feature artists who had created snowflakes for Robert’s Snow 2007 at their blogs, a number of artists had not yet sent in their snowflakes to Dana-Farber. As time was of the essence to get Blogging for a Cure underway, we worked with the list of artists whose snowflakes were already in possession of Dana-Farber. Therefore, not all the participating artists will be featured. This in no way diminishes our appreciation for their contributions to this worthy cause. We hope everyone will understand that once the list of artists was emailed to bloggers and it was determined which bloggers would feature which artists at their blogs, a schedule was organized and sent out so we could get to work on Blogging for a Cure ASAP. Our aim is to raise people’s awareness about Robert’s Snow and to promote the three auctions. We hope our efforts will help to make Robert’s Snow 2007 a resounding success.

These are the Robert’s Snow artists who will be/have been featured at Wild Rose Reader.
