CSFG’s Write-a-Book-in-a-Day effort, 2013

Jul 30, 2013

I’m not personally involved in this project, but I am a proud member of the CSFG, so I’m sharing this on their behalf.

bookinadaylogoaPlease support Paediatrics at the Canberra Hospital (PatCH) by sponsoring CSFG’s Write-a-Book-in-a-Day entry in 2013.

Last year, through the generosity of our sponsors, CSFG raised over $600 for PatCH. (You can find out more about last year’s escapade here.)

And now we’re doing it again!

The Write-a-Book-in-a-Day contest is a fundraising event for state children’s hospitals that runs from April to August each year. It began in Perth in 2003 and has since expanded across Australia. Teams of 5-10 writers are given 12 hours to collaboratively plan, write, illustrate, print and bind a children’s book (of around 8000 words in the Open category, less in the schools categories).

PatCH also came into being in 2003 to provide a clear and unifying identity for the paediatric health services at the Canberra Hospital. PatCH consists of several clinical areas; a 40 bed inpatient ward including a separate adolescent area, a Day Stay/Surgery unit, Outpatient Clinics and the Administration and Research areas.

CSFG will be writing our 2013 book in a day on Sunday, 4th August.

You can donate by:

  1. Visiting the Write-a-Book-in-a-Day website
  2. Choosing PatCH from the list of children’s hospitals and programs
  3. Choosing CSFG from the list of teams supporting PatCH and entering your credit card details.
  4. Or downloading the Sponsorship Form to donate by cheque or money order.
