I’m sure by now you’ve read about the Robert’s Snow Auction for Cancer’s Cure. I have updated the blogroll on the side with this week’s featured authors, and I have to additional notes to add.
First, Beginning today, Blogging-for-a-Cure Organizer Jules @ Seven Impossible Things Before Breakfast, will feature illustrators and their snowflakes you haven’t heard about. Today she has the snowflake created by Jarrett J. Krosoczka, author/illustrator of Punk Farm … which happens to be one of our Kindergartener’s favorite book!
Here is why you won’t see a feature on these artists. Since Elaine Magliaro posted this on her blog Wild Rose Reader, and I’m including it here (with permission).
“When Jules of 7-Imp put out her call in September for bloggers to interview/feature artists who had created snowflakes for Robert’s Snow 2007 at their blogs, a number of artists had not yet sent in their snowflakes to Dana-Farber. As time was of the essence to get Blogging for a Cure underway, we worked with the list of artists whose snowflakes were already in possession of Dana-Farber. Therefore, not all the participating artists will be featured. This in no way diminishes our appreciation for their contributions to this worthy cause. We hope everyone will understand that once the list of artists was emailed to bloggers and it was determined which bloggers would feature which artists at their blogs, a schedule was organized and sent out so we could get to work on Blogging for a Cure ASAP. Our aim is to raise people’s awareness about Robert’s Snow and to promote the three auctions. We hope our efforts will help to make Robert’s Snow 2007 a resounding success.”
Last but not least, thanks to some incredibly talented and creative folks, I got a lead for a video that features all of the snowflakes. So take a minute (actually about 8), watch the video, and then click on the links to the left to learn the story-behind-the-snowflake.
