Disaster Relief Charity Campaign: Let’s Help Out!
In the last few days Hurricane Sandy raged over the east coast, after it had devastated parts of the Caribbean. Sandy claimed many lives and left thousands homeless.
Every year, around the world, a number of natural disasters destroy lives and livelihood. Whether it’s Hurricane Katrina, the devastating earthquake in Haiti or the Asian tsunami – the list of natural disasters is long and brings countless human tragedies.
We’d like to give you the opportunity to contribute and support the people who have lost almost everything because of an unforeseen disaster. Use your writing talent and enter your story, poem, play or drabble regarding “natural disasters” and BookRix will donate $2 for each and every book entered in the campaign. Your entry can be fictional, autobiographical, factual or romantic. Everything is allowed, as long as the subject pertains to “natural disasters” and is completed work.
October 31st marks the start of a very special event at BookRix. We know natural disasters can happen anywhere and at anytime. We can all do our part to help those in need.
* You can enter as many stories as you like, but they should be natural disaster related.
* There are no page/word limits, but the book MUST have a cover and should be completed stories.
* Submit your story between Oct. 31-Nov. 26, 2012, 11am EST, 4pm London Time/GMT.
* Each book entered in the campaign will represent $2 that will be donated, by BookRix, to the Red Cross for disaster relief.
