FacebookTwitterPinterestTumblrBookmark/FavoritesEmailPrintFriendlyShare
It’s Day 6 of the silent auction to benefit the people of Haiti. All goods have been donated by a group of very  generous indie  shops and 100% of the proceeds will go to the Red Cross International Response Fund

Be sure to visit the Haiti Relief Fundraiser page for all the details.

How does it Work? Each day I will share a new batch of items 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.

How to Bid. Leave a comment on this post with the following:

  • your name
  • your email address
  • the item number
  • 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! You may bid on multiple items, just be prepared to win! The goal is to raise as much money as possible!
