Over 200 Children’s Illustrators Participate In Robert’s Snow: Cure for Cancer

If you enjoy great children’s illustrations and picture book illustrators; if you love Christmas or winter, and want to own a unique ornament created by a children’s illustrator; or if you care about helping make the world a better place or have known someone in your life affected by cancer, then you’ll want to check out the snowflakes created by children’s illustrators which are being auctioned off to raise money for Robert’s Snow: Cure for Cancer. The money will go to the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute. Robert’s Snow was created by illustrator Grace Lin and her husband Robert Mercer.

All this month, the more-than 200 illustrators who participated in this drive, and the snowflakes they created, will be featured on four to five kidlit blogs a day, with interviews and more. To view the schedule, or to visit one of the participating blogs, visit Jen Robinson’s post about it.

To bid on a snowflake (starting in November; bids start at $50); to take a look at all the wonderful snowflakes available; or to learn more about the Robert’s Snow: Cure for Cancer drive, head on over to the Robert’s Snow website. You can also look at the two previous years’ snowflakes.

You also have a chance to win a limited edition Robert’s Snow giclee print, over at Wild Rose Reader, if you read the articles about the illustrators participating in the Blogging for a Cure, and leave a comment.

This is a worthy cause, and also ties into children’s books and illustrators, which is a nice combination.
