The List of Never Giving Up, dedicated to Patrick Ness and his awesome friends and fans

People who write, make, read, and love books have done something really amazing since Thursday morning: Raising a MILLION dollars to help Syrian refugee children!

Well. Well, it's very nearly a million. See, we want to help raise the last $61,919.43. We're pledging $770 (because that's the same as £500), and we're trying to get 19 more bookshops to do the same, and then we'll match your $10,000, and then we'll be a third of the rest of the way so

Join the donation campaign here.
