Remember the 100 Stories for Haiti project? Well, its founder Greg McQueen is now starting a similar project for Pakistan. Donate a story, buy some copies of the anthology, do what you can to advertise it. Every little helps.
Here's Greg's full message - please pass it on!
Once again I have found myself in the position where I cannot ignore the need to do something. This time it is Pakistan ... The United Nations estimates that twenty million people have lost their homes as a result of the flooding that started last July. Add to this the thousands who have already lost their lives, and the thousands who *will* lose their lives because of famine and disease .. And well, it is once again time to do something!
100 Stories for Haiti has raised about £4000 for the Red Cross Haiti Earthquake Appeal. I am honoured and proud of the effort put in by writers and readers in supporting the project ... So, let's do it again!
50 Stories for Pakistan:
I am putting together an anthology of 50 stories, each no more than 500 words. Any subject or genre is acceptable, however, no stories with any violence, death, or mass destruction.
If you would like to contribute to this new project, please visit my new website for details: http://www.facebook.com/l/b485auw9kJOogxSY_IrVvn8Oepw;www.bigbadmedia.com/50-stories-for-pakistan/
Visit Greg's site, linked above, for full details. The important bits are - 500 words maximum and deadline 19th September. Stories should be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org . No theme but avoid tales of death and destruction. All proceeds go to Red Cross Pakistan Floods Appeal.
