Like most of the rest of the world, I have been watching in horror, sadness and helplessness at the devastation to Japan. What can I do? What can I give? How can I help? Thankfully, I found a way to make a difference. Jo at A Bit Of This And A Bit Of That is holding an online auction – similar to the one for Queensland – and I am joining in.
I am auctioning my Lemon Tree Quilt. It is my original design, one-of-a-kind. It measures approximately 14”x20”, perfect to brighten up any room in your home. I am willing to ship worldwide, so please don’t let distance stop you from bidding!
To make a bid, you will place your bid amount in the comment section, making sure to make your bid higher than the previous bid - bids should increase in increments of $5 US or more. If you are the winning bidder, I MUST have your email address. If you’re not sure if you’re a no-reply blogger or not, please include your email address in your comment, in this format – alliehomeschool at yahoo dot com.
Starting bid is $10.
Should you have the winning bid, you will be required to make the payment to Global Giving, and send me proof of payment within 48 hours. After 48 hours, the quilt will go to the second highest bidder. This auction runs from now until March 26th, 11pm EST.
For a great post on how the donation works and the steps to follow, see this post here.
This auction is being held on this blog, in cooperation with A Bit Of This And A Bit Of That. We are in no way affiliated with Global Giving, that's just our chosen method of getting funds safely to the affected area.
I hope that even if you don’t win, you’ll consider making a generous donation – if not to Global Giving, then to the organization of your choice. The scope of this tragedy is so hard to get your mind around. And please, do go check out the other auctions, the master list will be put up on Jo’s blog on March 18th. There are already so many beautiful things to bid on!
Please do spread the word of this auction – the more people who know the better. There won’t be any prizes for blogging about it, but you will earn my undying gratitude!
