Book Wish Foundation's Fundraiser:

Support Darfur and Get Your Name In A Book

Book Wish Foundation's Photo

BENEFITING: Book Wish Foundation

THE STORY:

Get your name published in a new book by Alexander McCall Smith, Meg Cabot, R.L. Stine, Joyce Carol Oates, John Green, Cornelia Funke and many other bestsellers! All it takes is a $20 donation to help build libraries in the refugee camps in Chad that are home to 250,000 refugees from Darfur.

Once you donate, be sure to send the name(s) you want printed in the book to book@bookwish.org.  If you donate more than $20, you can get more than one name in the book -- $40 for two names, $60 for three, etc.  This would be a great gift for children -- seeing their name in the book.  If you are concerned about privacy, you can provide a last initial instead of a last name, S. instead of Smith.

What You Wish For:  A Book For Darfur  will be published in September by Penguin/G.P. Putnam's Sons, but we need your names by April 30 if they are to be included.  Book Wish Foundation will be donating all proceeds from the book the UN Refugee Agency, UNHCR, in order to fund the refugee camp libraries.

What You Wish For: A Book For Darfur features a Foreword by Darfur advocate and UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador Mia Farrow, as well as stories and poems about wishes by Meg Cabot, Jeanne DuPrau, Cornelia Funke, Nikki Giovanni, John Green, Karen Hesse, Ann M. Martin, Alexander McCall Smith, Marilyn Nelson, Naomi Shihab Nye, Joyce Carol Oates, Nate Powell, Sofia Quintero, Gary Soto, R.L. Stine, Francisco X. Stork, Cynthia Voigt, and Jane Yolen.
