Before getting on to the main body of this post, I’d like to say thanks to Kristie Cook for organising the Indie Authors Relief Fund, and to the winner of the Fire Season auction. Your book is on its way. There are still lots available for auction and all proceeds go to the Red Cross. For more details and ongoing auctions, please see the: That said, I would like to move on to mention a rather unique fundraiser by an author of my acquaintance.

Pennies for Japan

Pennies for Japan Collectors set

Pennies for Japan is a set of elongated pennies, ideal for collectors or as unique gifts. The entire purchase price is donated to disaster relief in Japan through Direct Relief.

There are three pennies in the set, with designs depicting Hamsa, Lady Usume and the Tree of Life, and a storycard about the designs. Since any new ones would be made from a new set of dies, the artwork would vary, making the originals for sale here extremely collectible.

The set is available from etsy, but if you don’t have an account the seller will also accept Paypal directly. For details on drect sales please contact them or, if you prefer, leave a comment here and I will ask them to get in touch with details.
