Doctors Without Borders - Upcoming Fundraising Event!!

On January 12th, 2010 a magnitude 7.0 earthquake rocked Haiti, devastating a country that was already one of the poorest in the world. These are people who had next to nothing.
Now..........they have nothing.
Doctors Without Borders/Médecins Sans Frontières (MSF) is an international medical humanitarian organization created by doctors and journalists in France in 1971.
They provide impartial assistance to people whose survival is threatened by violence, neglect, or catastrophe independently of any political, military or religious agendas.
Eighty percent of MSF's overall funding (and 100 % of MSF's US funding) comes from private donations.
Right now MSF has mobile teams on the ground in Haiti setting up an inflatable hospital and treating the sick and wounded. To find out more about their efforts in Haiti click here.
Like everyone else, I wanted to find a way to help with the seemingly insurmountable task ahead of them.
I came up with an idea that raises desperately needed funds for the Haiti relief efforts and hopefully a fun way for readers to win signed copies of their favorite books from some of the top Paranormal/Urban Fantasy authors.
Check in tomorrow for all the details and to find out what authors and books are involved!
