jonah's eb auction and another awesome fundraiser!

Just wanted to jump in and let you guys know that Katie and I are gearing up for Jonah's EB Auction Fundraiser. Last year's was amazing, and we hope to make it an annual event. We are so excited to get started! Last year, Katie had a vision of hopefully having 20 items and raising $1,000. Well, God and you guys knocked our socks off with your generosity, and we had around 130 items donated and raised close to $9,000 for DebRA. How 'bout them apples? We would love for this year to be even more successful (and even more fun, if that's possible), but we need your help to do it. Do you have anything you could donate? You can hand-make an item or donate new, bought items. Not sure what to donate? You or your company can donate a gift card to a restaurant or spa or even a gift card for a gas station or grocery store. Put your thinking caps on.

The auction will run from Thursday, February 24th at 8:00 pm to Sunday, February 27th (Jonah's birthday) at 8:00 pm. (Whatever 24 X 3 is) blissful hours to shop without guilt and to raise money for a cure for EB! 

If you are interested in donating items or some money for shipping costs (any money we don't have to spend on shipping goes to DebRA!), please email Katie at jonahsebauction(at)gmail(dot)com, and she will get back with you. We need to know what you'd like to donate and the value of the item. Katie will let you know the details from there. WOOHOO! Check out the auction site HERE to see how last year went.

Secondly, my EB friend, Janel (the one who did Jonah's AWESOME birthday cake) is hosting a fundraiser for DebRA right now. She sells Thirty One products and is offering a large personalized thermal tote for $20 or a personalized lunch tote for $18, and at least $7 from each bag goes directly to DebRA! Click HERE to see the bags, patterns, and font choices. If you are interested, you can print out and complete the order form HERE and mail her a $20 or $18 check to: Janel Waters, 912 S. Forest Creek Dr., St. Augustine, FL 32092. You can email Janel at janelwaters(at)comcast(dot)net with any questions. Oooohhh, I just had a thought. What if you bought a bag, $7 went to DebRA and then you turned around and donated it to the auction??!! Sorry, I'm getting carried away. I'll stop now.

Happy Shopping and don't forget to email Katie with your donation ideas! I can't wait! Oh yeah, Jonah's EB Auction has a page on Facebook. Click HERE to "like" it! Alright, I'm getting link happy. I'm really going to go now. I think I need a cold shower and possibly some Cheetos.

It is a great group of crafty people always willing to help! I am sure some will be willing to donate something and of course I will too!

I don't comment often but I read daily. Thank you for educating us all and sharing Jonah's journey!
