Post a Story For Haiti

Jan 15th, 2010 | By | Category: CG Blog

We’ve been talking about what, if anything, we could do to help with the crisis in Haiti (beyond donating ourselves).

Because we’re a magazine, the first idea we had was to involve writers and artists. So we’ve started Post a Story For Haiti. We’ve asked anyone who wants to help to post fiction and art to their blogs, sites, etc. for free, with big DONATE buttons at the top and/or bottom that links to Doctors Without Borders, the Red Cross and Rainbow Fund, or any of the organizations participating in the relief efforts. That way even writers/artists who struggle financially as we do can lend a hand.

We’ve created a page on the CG website, http://crossedgenres.com/haiti/, where we’re keeping a growing list of participants with links to their stories and art. There’s already a number of great stories there. Please go read and enjoy them. And afterwards, if you’d like to show appreciation and help a huge humanitarian effort at the same time, donate to one of the charities or organizations.

If you’d like to participate by adding a story or artwork, please check out the page and join in. Any questions, please email us at haiti@crossedgenres.com. We hope that this will become a large group effort which offers a way to help the Haitian relief efforts for many people who wanted to, but didn’t think they could.

Thanks,
Bart & Kay

P.S. – this is voluntary on everyone’s part, including our own. The authors, Crossed Genres, and the two of us, won’t touch a single cent from this. We just want to help.
