Let's send Weronika to BACKSPACE!

Many of you know fellow blogger Weronika Janczuk.

What you may not know is this: She just won a scholarship to attend the uber cool Backspace convention in NYC! Cool, right? But here's the deal: her parents are dealing with some tough times and can't afford to send her there.

The good news is - WE CAN. You and me.

So, do yourself a favor and go read one of our favorites blogs, Ms. J Writes. She has organized a graduation gift for Weronika to send her to the conference. And what Ms. J wants, Ms. J gets :) Trust us.

She is setting up PayPal to handle the transaction.

For some reason, Jeanette's post made us reflect on this amazing community of writers we are blessed to be a part of. We are humbled beyond words. We love you people! Long live children's book writers!

Now, go send one of our own to Backspace :) And while you're there, follow Jeanette's blog. She is one of the funniest, kindest people I know. One who is gonna make it big one day. And when I say, "big," I mean GINORMOUS!


Katie and SF
