Support rape crisis centers and enter to win an advance copy of The Snow Queen’s Shadow, by Jim C. Hines.

Fantasy author (and all-around cool person) Jim C. Hines ([livejournal.com profile] jimhines) is doing an online fundraiser for rape crisis centres, in recognition of April as Sexual Assault Awareness month. You can donate directly to your local rape crisis centre, or to RAINN (Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network, a US-based organization), and then send him an e-mail letting him know how much and to whom you donated. The initial prize is, as it says above, an advance copy of his latest book, but for every $500 raised he will add another prize. Further details via the above link.

  1. [livejournal.com profile] optimystik is participating in a CN Tower climb for the World Wildlife Fund on April 15, and needs sponsors. The idea is to climb all the way up the zillion stairs in the CN Tower (1776 steps!) - and he's also trying to set a speed record. Most people take 30-40 minutes or more to do it - he's trying for less than 11 minutes. (Because he's insane like that. But in a good way.)

    Details here. You can sponsor him for any amount you choose, either via the official online sponsorship page if you have a credit card, or by commenting to his LJ post about it if you'd rather do it via cash or PayPal or whatever.

    . . .

    Elsewhere, [livejournal.com profile] jimhines is raffling off (sort of) an autographed advance review copy of his latest novel, Red Hood’s Revenge, to raise money for rape crisis centres. You make a donation either to the US-based Rape, Abuse & Incest National Network or to your local rape crisis centre, and the e-mail him at endrape@jimchines.com to let him know, before April 16.

    Details here.
