    **UPDATE** A MESSAGE FROM DEBI:

    Dear lovely friends,

    Meet Gloria!

    You did that, all of you. Without your support, love and generosity we wouldn't have had the resources - and, I suspect, the will - to find a way to make this happen.

    I don't want to share this on social media (partly because I don't want Oliver Taylor, of East Dulwich Campers infamy, to know) but I wanted all of you to share the celebration.

    Thanks so much for being part of the 171 - and if you don't know what I mean, you probably missed my blog post, in which I tried to find the words to express what this all means to us.

    Thank you, thank you, thank you.

    Debi and Greg xxx

    The Many Kindnesses of Debi Alper. Sounds like a great title for a novel. But anyone who has encountered Debi in real life or online knows this is no fiction. There is no one who does more, or goes further out of their way, to help others. As an editor, book doctor and all-round cheerleader, she is tireless in her support of writers. Not only does she improve our writing, she enriches our lives. And her generosity of spirit extends beyond the writing community to all her friends. If you have ever been a recipient of the kindness of Debi Alper, here’s your chance to repay that debt.

    When her beloved father died, Debi thought long and hard about what to do with the money he left her. She settled on a project she knew would give her and her family lasting freedom and pleasure, an investment in the future. Before those dreams could be realised, the company where she had placed her money went bankrupt. She has recently been advised that it is almost certain she will never get that money back.

    Debi has enabled so many of us to achieve our dreams. With your help now, we can restore Debi’s dream to her.

      Update from the Page owner

      Despite the fact we are all writers, we are struggling to find words adequate to express our gratitude to everyone who contributed, shared, shouted and generally proved themselves good eggs. The clearest message here is that kindness is contagious. Now our fundraiser is over, we hope everyone who got involved remembers what it feels like to stand shoulder-to-shoulder with fellow human beings and say: Kindness matters. Kindness makes the world a better place. Be kind to yourselves. xxx

      The response to our appeal has been hugely heartwarming, and a testament to how truly loved and respected Debi is. Thank you to all who have donated, each and every penny makes a huge difference. Please, if you can, help us get nearer our target by spreading the word. Share on all your social media (Debi now knows about the campaign so all embargoes are lifted). Email friends and colleagues that may know Debi but not have seen our appeal. We need to get just a bit closer to our target to restore to Debi her dream, please help if you can.
