Online Auction for the Cure of Diabetes

Brenda Novak, New York Times Best Selling author, is currently holding her annual online auction for the cure of diabetes. Brenda runs this fundraiser in honor of her youngest son, who was diagnosed with Type 1 at five years old (he's now 14), and the millions of others who suffer from diabetes. The proceeds have one purpose—to help find a cure—and will go to the Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami. Brenda Novak’s Online Auction for Diabetes Research is a registered 501(c)3, so donations are tax deductible.

There are MANY wonderful items to bid on (some starting as low as $2) such as:

*Concert Tickets
*Tea with Meg Cabot at the Plaza in NYC
*Personal Makeover
*Baja Mexican Cruise
*Disneyland Trip
*Critique by best selling author
*Autographed Books and ARC's
*Editor Evaluations

Seriously, there is something for everyone!! This auction is open until May 31st. Check out the auction HERE.

I have donated a GOSSIP FROM THE GIRLS ROOM and art inspired basket which includes a signed copy of the book, a framed 5x7 original illustration from the book, custom made Gossip candy bar wrappers filled with yummy chocolate, handmade bookmarks and magnets made from my original gallery art prints, plus a few extra surprises.  You can view my listing HERE.

Wow that is some awesome stuff. I just keep staring at the Meg Cabot & tea one... if only I could afford the plane ticket to NYC to see someone as awesome as she!

This is seriously awesome! I can't really do anything with those things just yet, as I am at an awkward stage with my WiP, but I will definitely check it out next year. ^_^
