24 Hour Silent Auction - Made With Love *Edited for Correction!*

**Please read the instructions carefully.  I am so sleep deprived that I did not write the instructions properly the first time- SO SORRY!!!!!  You DO NOT have to donate unless you have made the winning bid!!!!!!

Our next fundraiser is two-fold.  We are having our second yard sale here at our home tomorrow and we will be holding a silent auction that will be taking place both here on our blog and at our yard sale.  It will only last today and tomorrow, so if you want to participate, now is the time!  Each and every item was handmade with love by a friend or family member who very much supports our adoption of Dima.  Our family is so grateful for the time each person took to make and or ship these items to us.

Rules for Placing Bids

1. Choose which item(s) on which you would like to place a bid.  Please note that a minimum bid has been set for each item.  You must meet or exceed that minimum bid for your bid to count.  

2. To place your bid please send me an email: jenny.monier@gmail.com and state specifically what you are bidding on and for how much.  Please also leave your phone number if you would like for me to call you if you are a winner.  Please make sure your subject states that you are participating in our silent auction!  All winning bids will be placed into our Family Sponsorship Grant with Reece's Rainbow which will be tax-deductible for you.  To get to our grant page click HERE.   

3.  The winner of each item will be the individual who placed the highest bid on that item.  Winners will be announced on Monday, May 30th on this blog.  Winners will also be notified via email or phone call.

5.  I want to add that these items will be displayed at our yard sale tomorrow and people will have an opportunity to bid in person.  If you are local and would like to come make a bid in person, that is fine, too!

If you have any questions please feel free to ask!  I am more than happy to help.
