Another Reason To Shop

Okay kids, I am super excited about this.

If you've read my blog for any length of time, you know that I have been working with the American Cancer Society as a Relay for Life Team Development Chair, meaning that I've been tirelessly guilting my friends into joining my team and raising money. :) I joined up with Relay two years ago to start doing my part in the fight against cancer. Last year, my team The Betty Boobs (ha!) raised $2100 and we're looking to do even better this year. So far, I personally have raised almost $800 which thrills me to no end but I know I can do better and am itching to hit that $1000 mark before the Relay, which is just over two weeks away.

This is where you all come in.

I've asked some of my favorite bloggers (and people!) to donate items to my cause. Starting next Monday, June 6th you will be able to bid on these items and 100% of the proceeds will go directly to my team and The American Cancer Society.

How cool is that?

And I've wrestled up some pretty amazing things...things that would make perfect graduation gifts....things that will spruce up your summer wardrobe....things that will make your taste buds dance. I'm so excited about the generosity of these dear women who gladly, graciously, and overwhelmingly wanted to pitch in and help. They know firsthand the devastation that a cancer diagnosis can bring and are doing their part to find a cure. Cancer has been creeping closer and closer to the ones I love and I'm so excited to be doing something about it.

So, the ground rules: the first item will go up Monday morning, June 6th. Bidding will be open until 9 pm each night. All bidding will start at $10 and will go as high as possible! Remember, all proceeds go to the ACS and are desperately needed. And anyone who advertises this auction via their blog or Facebook and/or becomes a follower, will be entered into a drawing to receive a personal thank you gift from me. Feel free to copy the logo below and paste it everywhere you can think of.

This is what we do ladies; we get in there and fight the good fight and do what needs doing. I'm so excited to see what we accomplish, together.

If you're not interested in shopping but still wish to make a donation, please go here.

Hi. I know we don't know each other, but I stumbled on to your blog a while ago and have been reading it ever since. I sell Scentsy products, and if your interested I would love to offer up some product to place in your auction. I know you weren't soliciting for items to sell, but I'd love to help such a great cause. You can send me an email if you are interested.
