Many of you already know about the auction of snowflakes, Robert's Snow, to raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Hundreds of snowflakes have been created by children's book illustrators (see mine here) to help out. Sadly, the inspiration for the fundraiser, Robert Mercer, passed away this week.
To help support Grace Lin, Robert's wife, through this painful time, I'd like to remind my readers that bidding for these beautiful snowflakes will begin in November. Please bid often to help raise money for research. Nobody should have to lose a loved one so young.
