the Fundraising Auction

boy oh boy, when I get an idea, I don’t wait too long to execute.

  • 1:00 pm – have the idea of asking a couple of crafty friends to donate handmade items that I would auction off to raise money for the Weekend to End Women’s Cancer (aka The Big Walk)
  • 2:00 pm ask a few friends on Facebook what they think of the idea
  • 2:15 pm friends quick to respond: Go for it!
  • 2:30 create FB event page and send a few invites

it’s now 5:00 pm and I have SEVERAL people already committed to donating items! And I think I’ve found an almost-free hosting platform to run this type of fundraising auction so that I don’t have to keep track of the bidders and can make it look professional.

If you are crafty or know someone who is, or if you have ANYTHING funky you would like to donate to the cause, check out the Facebook event page I created. I will create a dedicated page here on tumblr as soon as I have 5 minutes. which means probably before you finish reading this!

and please share! share this post, share the event!

EDITED TO ADD: see, I told you I would do it! the auction page is up!
