Thank you for all of your kind comments on the vintage fabric tote bag I recently made. I'd like to auction it off to raise money for the victims of the horrific earthquake in Haiti. I know it will only be a small contribution, but small steps can lead to big differences when we all work together.
Here's how my auction will work:
You will be bidding on this bag, which I will fill with other handmade items and happy surprises.
In the comments section on this post, leave the amount you'd like to bid. Remember the cause and please bid generously.
Bidding will remain open until Monday, January 18 (Martin Luther King Day here in the U.S.) at midnight, Eastern Time.
At that time, I will ask the highest bidder to make a donation to the Haitian relief charity of his or her choice in the amount of their bid, and ask them to forward me a copy of the receipt as proof the donation was made.
I will gladly ship (at my cost) anywhere in the world.
Separately, if you are looking to make a donation on your own here are some organizations:
- Doctors without Borders lost three hospitals in the quake, and could really use our help to bring vital medical support to the victims
- Haiti native Wyclef Jean’s non-profit Yele
- Mercy Corps
- And, you can text "Haiti" to 90999 to donate $10 to the American Red Cross relief efforts. Or text Yele to 501 501 to donate $5.
Thank you in advance. Now, let the bidding begin!
