Knowing I couldn't support Meg in any huge financial way I did the only thing I could think to do, I put the call out on TSL asking if anyone would be kind enough to donate items to be auctioned off. The response was overwhelming & I set about organising the first TSL Charity Auction.
The auction ran on our Facebook Fan Page, The Sewing Library Noticeboard beginning March 15th with a total of 139 donations in total WOW!!!!!! When bidding came to a close 48 hours later we had raised a total of $3,700 including some additional financal donations by some very generous TSL members. To see the donating businesses please see the photo album here.
I'd also love to take this opportunity to thank Jo & Shelley for their help during the auction, if it wasn't for my Admin Girls helping out, the auction wouldn't have been as successful as it was I'm sure of that.
|Going, going, gone!|
In total Meg & her team, Goldilocks & The Papa Bears, will come close to reaching over $9,000, which is a big cry from their original goal of $5,000! I would like to congratulate Meg & her team on such a fantastic effort, they have helped raise funds for vital blood cancer research with all their hard & brave work!
