On September 13th, Jules posted a Call to Bloggers to help spread the word about the snowflake auction for Robert’s Snow. Bloggers from all around offered to help highlight the talented illustrators who designed these eye-catching snowflakes. Elaine Magliaro opened doors, Jules organized everything, and the rest, shall we say, is history.
Jules organized around 65 bloggers to highlight over 150 illustrators in the hopes people will go to Dana-Farber Cancer Institute’s Robert’s Snow site, bid on the snowflakes, and raise money to help fight cancer. I have an amazing interview with David Ezra Stein scheduled to post Friday, October 26th.
Most of us have probably been touched by cancer’s reach, in one way or another. Maybe a family member, a friend, a co-worker. I was diagnosed with melanoma in my late twenties. Thankfully, it was in the early stages, so I only needed two surgeries to make sure it was all out. Wouldn’t it be so incredible if all cancer patients could hear these magic words, “We got it all out!” or “We have a cure!” Let’s help make this happen.
Please go and find out about all these talented illustrators and their snowflakes. I’m sure you’ll find one that captures your heart.
Here is this week’s schedule for the illustrator highlights. Thank you, Jen, for putting this schedule together.

Please take time out to visit all of these blogs, and read about these fabulous illustrators. And, if you’re so inclined, think about bidding for a snowflake in the Robert’s Snow auction. Each snowflake makes a unique gift (for yourself or for someone else), and supports an important cause.
