New Nie Auction Item!


My friend Melissa (from elementary school) who lives in Rochester, New York sent me an email:


I had just read some details of this online before you sent this message, and although I'm not a religious person, my hearts and thoughts and even prayers go out to that family. I have a $25 gift card to the Gap (Baby Gap, but it works at any of them) that someone sent us when we had Sara. I'd be happy to put that to good use and let somebody bid on it for your auction. I don't have a website or anything, so I don't have a way to get that info out there, but if you want to post it I'll be happy to send it to you so you can give it out to whomever wants to bid on it. Thanks!


Yay! Three cheers for Melissa!!! So, added to the Remedez Gift Card, I am also adding to my auction a $25 Gap Gift Card.


Reminders regarding this auction:


~ Bid High and Bid Often!

~ Please bid in whole dollar increments

~ Special consideration for this auction: If the bidding is indeed high and often, I will also end this auction on Monday, September First (which is Labor Day) at High Noon. If the bidding is slower (since this is a holiday weekend), I will consider extending the time.

~ The winning bidder will donate the winning amount to the Recovery Fund, after which they will recieve a receipt via email; the winner shall then forward that receipt to me (jennyeckton@yahoo.com) and I will mail (via USPS) the gift card

~ Remember the mindset for this auction, as DesignMom has said:


I told Ben Blair that I'm hoping people are in a public radio mindset. Like when you hear the NPR commentators say: "pledge your membership of only $75.00 and we'll send you this canvas tote bag with our logo on it." You know the tote bag is worth maybe $5. But it's not about that. You're looking for a way to be generous and supportive. And the tote bag is just a bonus.


Thanks for considering this auction. Any questions? Just let me know.
