Right now I'm not sure how I can tangibly do something besides send money to a well-respected established organization like IJM. So that's what I'm going to do. But I want to do more than just send in what I can afford. I want to multiply my money. I want to use my money (and dare I say skills) to bring in even MORE money. Your money :)
So I'm going to hold an ONLINE AUCTION for a very cute something that I'm going to make. The winning bid will receive this very cute something, and I will donate the ENTIRE amount to IJM. In fact, I don't even want the money to touch my hands. I will have the winning bidder send the money directly to IJM, and when they send me the receipt for their donation, I will send them the very cute something. I will cover shipping too!
Are you intrigued?
The key to this online auction is to have a lot of people watching the auction, and hopefully bidding! The hard part is, I have NO IDEA how many people are reading this blog. I signed up with some site tracker thing, but it's not working. It says there has been zero views - which is impossible because I have like 8 comments and a handful of e-mails from people who have been on the blog. So I'm asking that everyone please post a comment to let me know you were here, so I can see what kind of readership I have. I'm also asking that once I get the auction item listed, you will help me by telling everyone you know (via e-mail, facebook, myspace, forums, etc) to check out the blog and the auction. I'm *hoping* that people will bid higher than usual knowing that their money is going to a GREAT organization to help rescue oppressed people.
So what do you think?
Please post a comment to let me know you were here!!!!!
***PS -I'm going to be gone on vacay next week, I *might* be able to blog via my iphone, not sure yet. I hope to have the very cute something listed sometime the following week. I'm hoping Monday the 25th. But no promises!
