Subject: b Katrina - a plea for information and donations

From: "Ken Lopez"

Date: Tue, 06 Sep 2005 11:55:48 -0400

To: Biblio@bibliophilegroup.com


The Antiquarian Booksellers' Benevolent Fund is a nonprofit

charitable organization established to help booksellers who have

faced catastrophic circumstances whether as a result of natural

disaster, sickness or some other unforeseen and uncontrollable series

of events.


We are appealing for information about booksellers who have been

affected by Hurricane Katrina, and are also appealing for funds to

support those booksellers.


The ABBF was established and is administered by the Antiquarian

Booksellers' Association of America (ABAA) but the funds are

available to all booksellers, whether ABAA members or not. In recent

years, the majority of grants given out by the ABBF have gone to non-

ABAA booksellers.


Most recipients of grants from the Benevolent Fund do not even know

of the fund's existence, and have not applied for grants; in general,

the ABBF is informed of their circumstances by their colleagues, and

is able to provide modest grants, no strings attached, in a time of

great hardship.


Donations to the fund may be made by check, payable to "Antiquarian

Booksellers Benevolent Fund" and addressed to:


Antiquarian Booksellers Benevolent Fund

c/o Antiquarian Booksellers Association of America

20 West 44th St.

New York, NY 10036-6604


You may also call the Headquarters of the ABAA at 212-944-8291 or

email at hq@abaa.org to contribute via credit card.


Thank you for your help.

President Emeritus, ABAA

Trustee, Antiquarian Booksellers' Benevolent Fund
