It’s Not All Mary Poppins

More Auction Info and How-To

Her Bad Auction

The previous post described the ‘why’ of the auction. This post gives some ‘how-to’.

1) This auction is in fact more of a raffle. Tickets are purchased for a specific prize, and winners will be drawn at random. You can, of course, increase your chances of winning a particular item by placing all of your tickets on that item.

2) All proceeds go to Muscular Dystrophy Canada.

3) Tanner is a little boy, and we all know how kids love to receive mail! If you look in the left sidebar of the Auction Site, you’ll find information on how to get letters to Tanner. I’m encouraging my kids to write him a note: perhaps you could help your child/ren do the same!

4) Bidding will begin on Wednesday, December 13th, continuing through Sunday, December 17th. Winners will be selected on Monday, the 18th. Information on how to purchase tickets is now on the site.

So, pop over to the Her Bad Auction website, do a little browsing, buy a few tickets, maybe even make a donation direct to MD Canada, and get your children (your own, your sister’s, your neighbour’s, whichever you have!) to write a letter to Tanner.

  6. UK Jenny and Melbourne Kirsten: Yes, that post was indeed up – for something less than an hour! Then I decided that as I wanted the auction posts I’d committed to write to have top billing for a day or two, I would hold off on that post. But don’t worry – it will be back!

    Kittenpie: We must have the same taste in memes. There are so many out there, but not all of them interest me. I loved reading yours. Thanks for doing it.

    Kristen, Sunshine: It’s a great project; I’m pleased to be part of it.
