Robert's Snow 2007

From the blog Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast:

By now, you have probably read the very sad news of the death of Robert Mercer, Grace Lin’s husband, at the end of last month, due to cancer.

You may remember from [Seven Imp's] May ’07 interview with Grace that she was the driving force behind the Robert’s Snow: for Cancer’s Cure fundraising effort after Robert was initially diagnosed with Ewing’s sarcoma and after writing Robert’s Snow (Viking Books; 2004) soon after that diagnosis. The fundraising effort entailed the auctioning off of special snowflakes, created by children’s book illustrators, whom Grace had gathered together in the name of raising money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute (DFCI).

Thanks for helping to spread the word about Robert's Snow 2007. I am hopeful that this year's auctions will raise even more money for Dana-Farber and cancer research than the previous auctions. I am sure that everything bloggers will be doing to promote the cause will help us in this effort.

Elaine, I am happy to help out with such a worthy cause.
