Today is Nie Nie Day! A day where the blogging world is trying to raise as much money for the Stephanie and Christian Nielson Rehab Fund. I'm feeling the love, energy and desire of everyone who is helping this family out. It's absolutely beautiful! And I'm so excited to participate.
My silent auction will be on a necklace that I designed specifically for Stephanie, and her personality I have come to know through blogging. It's a simple, charming bird festoon necklace available in either 24K gold vermeil finish or sterling silver (winner's choice). The length of the necklace is 18". All the proceeds and payment goes directly to the Stephanie and Christian Paypal Fund. Shipping will be on Darleen Meier Jewelry.
Here are the rules:
-The auction will stay open through the weekend and end Sunday, August 31st at 10:00 p.m. EST
-To bid, leave a comment with your bid price (and feel free to check back to see if you are winning)
-Keep all bid prices to a dollar amount--no changes. (for example $28.00, then next bid $30.00 not $29.50)
-Anonymous commenting is welcomed, but please leave an email address for contacting or name or something!
-Once the bidding ends, the winner will be announced and I will either contact you or you can email your shipping information and the preferred necklace metal finish to firstname.lastname@example.org .
-At this point, the highest bidder will directly donate the decided amount to Stephanie and Christian's Paypal account and then forward me the paypal confirmation. I will then ship out the necklace.
Simple as that and you will be helping out a family who is in much need while getting a little something in return. Click here to see a list of other auctioneers.
