The Evil League of Evil Writers is hosting a fund campaign for my critique partner, Julie Butcher (whose editing services several of you have experienced). Last week, Julie's husband hacked his calf apart (literally) with a chainsaw. The funds are being raised to offset the amount of medical expenses Julie and her husband will have after insurance.
(He's had 2 surgeries and the severed muscle has been repaired. Fortunately, the chainsaw missed the bone. He will be in recovery for a long time.)
There are some nice perks (critiques, coffee with an agent, etc.). And, of course, there's the bottom line "helping someone" thing.
Julie has a heart the size of Texas and is one of those "giver" sorts of people. (She is, in fact, a little blown away by the fact that the Evil League is doing this for her.) If it's on your heart and in your means, please consider a gift for Julie today.
