A Challenge to Writers and Illustrators for Kids

As part of my Christmas giving, I have decided to donate a buffalo through plancanada.ca. Why a buffalo? Because I have buffalo in my story The Veil Weavers. Of course, mine are bison and this is a water buffalo, but hey… it’s still a buffalo. And it will make a family very happy. https://plancanada.ca/GiftsofHope/shopdisplayproducts.asp?id=16&cat=Animal+gifts

My challenge to all my kid-writer and illustrator friends (and writers for adults) is to find a donation that fits with one of your stories. Plan Canada has a catalogue, as does Operation Eyesight and Unicef.

Derek Mah, there must be a Save the Komodo Dragon fund somewhere. Monica Kulling – an animal shelter? And Art Slade, Plan Canada has a pig just for you. To anyone who accepts my challenge: please let me know, and pass on the challenge.
