There continues unfortunately to be flooding throughout Australia. So many have lost their homes and lives. Living in New Orleans as I do, I feel a particular pang for the victims of this flood and have been intending to start an auction to help raise money as soon as I heard about the relief effort. Though I was not here for Katrina, we moved a few months later and have certainly been very effected by the process of recovering from a disaster of this nature. It’s devastating in spirit.
So I would like to do my own little part to help contribute to the relief efforts for the victims of the floods in Australia. You can learn more about the women behind this huge fundraiser and the disaster by clicking on the icon above. But for my part, I intend to auction off two baby quilts that I have made. They are currently for sale in my Etsy shop, but I will be removing them from there and all proceeds will be given directly to the Relief Fund.
I will set up a separate post for each auction to keep things simpler. But here’s the plan. I will post pictures and descriptions of the quilts and then in the comment section you can state your bid. The bidding will be open until January 24th, after which I will contact the winner and you will pay the relief fund directly. All international bidders are welcome. I will pay for the shipping of the quilt to you wherever you are.
Please bid on these items and be generous. If you don’t need the item yourself perhaps you have a friend who might. Have them come and bid. This is for charity and begging for money for flood victims is a noble thing! Let’s out do one another in kindness!
I will post links to the auctions on this post as soon as they are set up!
Thank you in advance for your support and generosity!
Auction #1: Baby Boy Quilt – Playing with the Boys
