Brenda Novak’s Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes

BNDiabetesAuctionHeader Brenda Novaks Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes

Hi all,

I have a friend with a daughter the same age as mine. My friend’s daughter lives with diabetes, so when I had the opportunity to participate in Brenda Novak’s Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes (2012), I jumped at the chance to participate! Here’s the low-down from the woman herself:

“Welcome to Brenda Novak’s Annual Online Auction for Diabetes Research. So far, we have raised over $1.3 million–and hope to break $2 million in the near future. In order to make that happen, we are gearing up for another great year, so be sure to keep an eye on all the fabulous items our generous donors are contributing. The auction will open on May 1st and run through May 31st. Make sure you register as a shopper so that you get all the notices that will be going out. You wouldn’t want to miss the fun–this is such an easy way for us to join together to make a difference!”

Yep, you saw right: the auction’s on right now!

And you’ve gotta see it (i.e. VISIT THE WEBSITE!!!) to believe what’s being auctioned this year :)

I went in with a bunch of my author-friends, and we all kicked in to buy eReaders which are being auctioned off on Brenda’s online auction website. And, because no eReader is complete without eBooks, we’ve preloaded the eReaders with a bunch of eBooks *g*

    A wonderful effort fighting a terrible disease. I’ll be visiting Brenda’s site!

    • Thank you Dannie! Brenda’s on one of my writing loops and she’s just lovely. The amount of time and effort she’s devoted to this cause is awe-inspiring. Fingers crossed we can help make this year the best fund-raising year yet for the auction!

    Thank you so much for helping us to spread the word about the auction. We appreciate your participation and generosity. My name is Danita and I’m a volunteer on the auction and your help in getting the word out generates more shoppers and visits to the auction website. We have added two new features to this year’s auction. We know that there are some shoppers who are unable to bid on items but do want to contribute to the cause so we have added a store which will allow them to purchase items and the proceeds go towards the auction the link is http://www.cafepress.com/brendanovaksonlinediabetesauction. We have also added a blog which will have updates of the auction, items that are currently being spotlighted, and much more. The link to visit is http://bnauctionblog.tumblr.com/. Thank you again for helping us to make a difference.
