Robert's Snow: Blogging for a Cure

Robert's Snow: Blogging for a Cure begins today. It is a muti-blog event put together by Seven Impossible Things to help raise money for the Dana-Farber Cancer Institute to fight cancer. Robert's Snow: For Cancer's Cure is a fundraising event that began in 2004. About 200 illustrators have decorated snowflakes this year. The snowflakes will go up for auction next month.

Grace Lin started Robert's Snow while her husband, Robert battled cancer. This year's auction holds special meaning because Robert lost his battle with cancer a few months ago.

Since 2004, Robert's Snow has raised over 200,000. This year, The Seven Imps organized this blog event to help drive web traffic to the Robert's Snow: For Cancer's Cure site. And we all hope that Blogging for a Cure will help make this year's Robert's Snow: For Cancer's Cure bigger than ever.

So, here's the schedule for the first week, highlighting illustrators and the snowflakes they contributed to this year's auction.
