Auction #1 - Justice Giraffe

Well here is my "very cute something" that I have been working on.    I'm calling it Justice Giraffe (double click on the picture to see it bigger and view the details). Perfect for the little girl in your life ~ daughter, grand-daughter, niece, or friend.  Sorry it it is gender specific, but I fell in love with this fabric.  The giraffe is hand-made by me, and stands approximately 18" tall.  

Auction Rules/Details

The auction begins NOW, and ends Thursday 9:00 pm  PST.  You place your bid by posting a comment in THIS POST with your bid amount.  Please bid in increments of $5.  Whoever is the highest bid at the time the auction ends (9:00pm - thursday) is the winner.  

I am covering the shipping costs to anywhere in the lower 48 states.  

The entire amount of the winning bid will go directly to International Justice Mission (IJM) who does an awesome job at rescuing oppressed peoples - child prostitutes, slaves, widows whose land is stolen, and the list goes on.

I will keep this post at the top of the blog, although I plan to keep blogging while the auction is on.  Just scroll down a bit to see new blog entries.

Let's start the bidding at $5
Let the bidding begin!

aagh! You got a $500 bid! That is awesome! Ok, I really can't bid that amount, but I'm glad to have found your blog. I recently heard Gary, the pres. of IJM speak and it was INCREDIBLE!

Can't wait to read more!

Came here from an email sent by Stacey Galde. IJM is lucky to have you on their side! I pray God's fruitful blessings on your endeavor.

The fundraising is a bit stalled for wells b/c we are waiting for quotes in Libera. Hopefully, we'll have quotes soon and I'll actually get I'm Thirsty Too and I Drink. . . up and running. . aagh! Too many ideas and not enough time in the day! The Because Every Mother. . idea is to do birth kits. We'd like to eventually get those donations directly from OBGYN's as a donation per delivery that they do. . .we are working on a advertising campaign to provide them. I'd love your thoughts on ANY of it!
