Safe Haven Totals

The Midsouth region added a charitable aspect to this year's conference:  a book basket, where attendees could donate new and gently used children's books.  Also, a full novel critique by Michael Stearns of Upstart Crow Literary was raffled off.  (Thank you, Mr. Stearns!)  Our collection totals were:

-318 books collected
-$785 raised

Fantastic!  The books and money will go to Safe Haven, a nonprofit organization assisting homeless families in Middle TN.

This is a great idea! We should all keep in mind that donating books to our local libraries is super easy.
