At Random Acts, we value each and every contribution to our organization. The support we receive from our partners and other businesses is invaluable. As you probably heard, Random Acts was hosting an online auction this year July 16–24. This auction was launched to raise funds to assist in furthering our Food Equity initiative this year. All donations will go to the general fund, where we can support large and small kindness acts. While totals raised through our auction are ongoing, as of the writing of this post, over $25,000 has been raised. This is remarkable! Thanks to supporters like you and the contributors below! 

This post is dedicated to the musicians, writers, and other artists who generously donated products to the online auction itself. 

For the Love of Books

A special thank you to the following authors, editors, and publishers who donated their work to our auction! You can see their works in various baskets such as Book Lover’s and Music Lover’s along with our Journaling Basket. Light blue background covered with many books. Some are signed by the authors.

  • Editor Lynn S. Zubernis awarded us with two signed books titled “There’ll Be Peace When You Are Done” and “Family Don’t End With Blood.” This makes the books a rare item for fans of Supernatural to get their hands on. 
  • Are you a fan of the Gilded Age Detective series? Well, you are in luck because editor and publisher Mark Williams kindly donated “The Frisco Detective” by Albert W. Aiken. Check the whole fun collection of Dark Lantern Tales on their website.
