Somebody that I know from my Twitter Life has done something amazing.
That somebody is the lovely @Keris, and you can see what she has created if you click on the Authors For Japan widget. Please support it if you can.
Lots of Amazing Writers, Literary Whizzes, Artists (*Ahem*, and mentioning no names)and other similarly Wonderful And Creative Types have kindly donated examples of their work (and in many cases their time and their expertise) to be auctioned off on the Authors For Japan website. All money raised from the auction will go to the Red Cross to help victims of the recent earthquake and tsunami.
There are some amazing things that you can bid on. I wish that I could tell everybody about this auction, and Lord Knows I’ve tried. If you’re reading this,please do click on the widget and visit the Authors for Japan website. And if you are able,please do make a bid. And tell everybody that you know all about it – Retweet it to your followers if you ‘do’ Twitter; ‘Share’ or ‘Like’ it if you’re on FaceBook …the more people that know about it, the more bids that will be generated and the more money that will be raised …
….and in doing so you will be Doing A Good Thing. Just like the lovely @Keris, who can go to sleep tonight knowing that she has Done A Very Good Thing Indeed. She should be proud of herself.
We in Twitterland are very proud of her. And of Twitter. And of each other.
Recently somebody who should have known better (but didn’t)gave @Keris a hard time about being on Twitter. It’s no great secret; you can read all about it on her blog. Oh Vanessa,what a difference a day (or two) makes. Today I challenge anybody to give @Keris a hard time about being on Twitter.
Because without an @Keris and a Twitter there would not be an Authors for Japan. Nor would there be so many utterly fabulous,generous and kind hearted individuals retweeting, visiting and bidding at said site.
And so I rest my case, and in @keris’s own words: ‘Tweet that,Vanessa’.
