Do you love JAFF and want to help the victims of Hurricane Harvey? Have we got a deal for you! Three of our authors are in Harvey’s path – Maria Grace in Houston, Jack Caldwell and Colette Saucier in Louisiana – so we’re donating royalties for certain books and offering cameos and writing critiques in exchange for donations to relief charities. This post will be updated often, so check back! Here are 3 ways you can help:

How does it work for cameos and critiques? Claim the item you want in the comments, and once the author has confirmed you’re the recipient, make a donation to either Habitat for Humanity, Catholic Charities, or Americares* and send a copy of your receipt to the author, or you can donate to Americares through our special fundraising page on Crowdrise. Want something different than what you’re seen here? Make us an offer! If you’re a JAFF writer and want to be part of the fundraiser, we’d be thrilled to have you.
*We’re supporting these particular charities because of their strong track record in providing effective hurricane relief and high ratings on Charity Navigator. Jack Caldwell, our Hurricane Katrina survivor, says, “Really, the folks who helped the most were the religious charities, Christian and Jewish, large and small. Many were individual churches. I can personally vouch for Catholic Charities. One cannot praise too highly the thousands of college students from all over the country who came down to help, sometimes more than once. In the rebuilding phase, Habitat for Humanity was the best national group.”
