Kidlit Authors for Oklahoma Disaster Relief

This past Monday, a massive tornado hit the city of Moore in Oklahoma. It demolished 2 elementary schools, killing innocent children. A total of 24 people died, but many more lost their homes and all of their possessions.

The Lucky 13s have joined forces with the Friday the Thirteeners and the Enchanted Inkpot to help those  affected by the Oklahoma tornado. To that end, we are offering up a humongous extravaganza of a giveaway. Kidlit Authors for Oklahoma is starting today and will run for 2 weeks. Enter for your chance to win 1 of 5 book prize bundles and a chance to win a critique from our many wonderful authors.

To enter, all you have to do is donate $10 to the Red Cross fund at this link. That will earn you one entry. Each subsequent $10 donation is an additional entry. Once you've made your donation, please forward your Red Cross email receipt to and enter yourself into the drawing. You may enter once a day! Deadline is June 7th, 2013. Due to the size of these prizes we must limit this to US addresses only. However, the critiqes are open to everyone internationally! Thank you in advance for your support.
