>Please take a moment to consider joining in the following charity auction to benefit a family within our extended community who is coping with a son’s battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. You can view the auction’s Facebook album here if you’d like to get involved or place a bid. The proceeds will go to such a great cause!
A good friend of mine recently received the news that her three year old son, Sean, had Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia. While this is a very treatable and curable form of cancer, this little boy has a long road ahead of him that will most likely include close to three years of chemotherapy treatments! In order to help his family get through, we will be holding a charity auction to raise money for Sean, his parents, and his three older siblings. The family’s insurance will cover much of the medical costs but other bills are going to quickly add up as both of Sean’s parents are missing tremendous amounts of work.
Here are the details of how the charity auction will run. We will also be running a regular auction at the same time. As a work at home mom, I know that we all work very hard to make ends meet and giving up items for even such a great cause can be difficult, so everyone will also have the opportunity to auction off an item for their own profit.
Part 1: Auction to Benefit Sean and His Battle with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia
You can donate as many items you want to this auction. All proceeds will benefit Sean and his family as they battle this disease. Shipping on these items should be free. Funds for these items will be sent to me and I will advise the seller once payment of their item has been received. All benefit items will start bidding at $1 with $1 increments in price.
Part 2: Auction to Benefit You
In order to be a part of this auction you MUST donate an item to the auction for Sean. You can have one item this auction for each item you donate to the Benefit Auction. Shipping can be charged and should be included with your item description. You will also be able to specify your item start price, but bid increments will be a set $.50 to keep things consistent. When the auction closes, the winner will be announced and will be required to contact you the seller to claim their item. If the item is not claimed within 48 hours, please let me know and we will move to the next highest bid.
