I’m SOOOOO excited to announce that the ACFW Foundation’s Spring Online auction is up and running. The ACFW Foundation is a 501(c)(3) that exists to raise money that can be used to offer scholarships to the ACFW National conference. Our dream is to also offer support to our chapters as we raise additional funds.
If you’ve watched my writing career, you may have heard me say that I firmly believe I wouldn’t be writing the books I am without what I’ve learned through ACFW and its conferences. In fact, I’ve met all of the editors I write for at conference and built countless relationships there.
Now, normally I wouldn’t post about the ACFW Foundation auction here, because I know many people who read my blog aren’t writers. You’re readers, moms, active in busy lives. But I wanted to make sure you knew about this so you could take advantage of the abundance of reader items. Many authors came together to offer baskets of books. There is some good reading ahead for those who win the baskets!
There are also some pretty amazing opportunities for writers to have chapters critiqued by published authors, a synopsis critique by a Love Inspired editor, a 1st chapter & synopsis read by Raela Schoenherr with Bethany House, and a mentoring session with agent Karen Ball. There are many more great packages to bid on. You can check the writer packages out here.
To see all the items and bid, you can go here and click the green button that says “VIEW ALL ITEMS”. Make sure you scroll through – there are three pages of donations, thanks to all our generous donors!!
Please help raise money for our conference scholarships by 1) bidding on some items! and 2) sharing the news about our auction. If you interact with readers via Facebook or your blog, would you mention the auction?
The auction ends March 31, so make sure you get in there and bid on the items you want! Now I’m off to bid on a couple that caught my eye!
