Haiti Relief Fundraiser

FacebookTwitterPinterestTumblrBookmark/FavoritesEmailPrintFriendlyShare

By now I’m sure you all have heard about the horribly devastating earthquake in Haiti and I’m also sure that like me you feel so heartbroken and helpless in face of the suffering of the Haitian people. Nothing will bring back those who perished, but the survivors need our help. From all the reports I’ve read, the biggest need in Haiti is just for basic relief and supplies…food, water, shelter, medical supplies. That’s why I’ve decided to coordinate a fundraiser for the Haitian people with 100% of the proceeds to go to the Red Cross International Response Fund. The Red Cross has been helping those in need since 1881 and they have already pledged an initial 1 million towards Haiti Relief, let’s help them give more.

How you Ask?

I’m coordinating a silent auction of items that have been donated by indie crafters, artists and designers. Each day I will share a new batch of items on Indie Fixx that you can bid on via the comments. You will be able to see everyone’s bids and rebid if you get outbid. The highest bidder will win the item and pledges the amount bid towards the Red Cross International Response Fund. The item will then be sent out in the mail to you from the artist, crafter or designer who donated it.

Be sure to visit the Haiti Relief Fundraiser page for all the details.  Please feel free to link, tweet & post this fundraiser everywhere! The more people who know about it, the more we can raise!

Now get started on bidding!

How to bid.

Leave a comment on this post with the following:

  • your email address
  • your bid amount

Keep checking back throughout the day to see if you have been outbid. I will do my best to keep up with moderating comments, so you will be able to see everyone else’s bids. If you are outbid, rebid! Remember, it’s for a good cause. Also, you may bid on multiple items, just be prepared to win!

  19. bummer – I think I missed it. Watching for more.

  20. Faro, you didn’t miss it. my blog clock was off. just corrected it. It’s only 11:07 pm here and the auction ends at 11:59 pm!

  21. Just a note if anyone is looking at these comments, I had to adjust a few of the comment posting times since the blog clock was wrong. It was off by an hour.

    The important thing to know is that all these bids were made before the auction cut-off at 11:59pm EST.

    The clock is correct now!

  22. Are there more auction items coming! I am excited to bid!!!
