Patrick Ness starts an appeal which has raised over £100K

Recommended Posts

Earlier today Patrick Ness set up a fundraising page for Save the Children, who have recently put out an appeal for aid for Syrian refugees. He promised to match all donations, up to £10k. 

 

As I post, donations are at £66k, with an extra £10k pledged by Patrick, Derek Landy, John Green and Jojo Moyes. He's also just tweeted that he's been contacted by 2 anonymous people who are going to donate £10k each. So it's now way over £100k - and this has been over the course of the day. 

 

It's amazing what people can achieve to help others. :)

This is fantastic. :) It's so nice to see something positive being done re. Syria, especially after seeing those heartbreaking photos yesterday.

I tried to donate through Paypal but I can only do that if I link a credit or debit card to it - I can't pay with my Paypal balance for some reason.  :(

This is an amazing collection and it's gathered speed so quickly.  It's surprising what people can do with a little bit of encouragement.

This is an incredible effort and has restored some of my faith in humanity. Although it has, somewhat inevitably, slowed down, the money keeps coming in - both from the public and authors with matching £10k donations. I've done my bit too, and I'm sure Ness is very proud of what he's managed to achieve.
