The publishing community bands together to support the Country Fire Authority

8 Jan 2020 | Cherry Cai

#AuthorsForFireys is an amazing initiative started by Emily Gale, author of I Am Out With Lanterns. Through this hashtag, authors are auctioning off various items and experiences including signed books, illustrations, one-on-one chats, writing tips and other unique opportunities to raise money for the CFA on Twitter. All money raised will go to help support the incredible work that our firefighters are doing in this unprecedented disaster.
