Guest Post from Amy Rainey, Hidden Treasures auction coordinator

January 29th, 2012

Dear friends,

I am writing to all who have kindly participated in past auctions at Hidden Treasures, or are interested in what we are doing.

Wonderful things are afoot for our next auction, which begins in two days on February 1st!

~This includes a custom redesign of the blog!  Additionally, we have worked to streamline the actual navigation of the auction listings.

~We have a button that you can share and post on your own websites and blogs!  Please help us spread the word!

~There is also a “child update” page now!  This will allow us to share the progress of the children that you have blessed in past auctions.

It’s not too late to donate!  Some of you have already contacted me about donations for our auction for the Archer boys.  If you have not, and wish to participate this time, we would love to have you!  Please let me know so that I can list your donated item(s) to be auctioned.  Email me at

The 3 LuvBugs auction will run from Wednesday, February 1st to Tuesday, February 7th! 

If you would like to learn a bit more about the Archer family, visit us here:  Meet the 3 LuvBugs!   These three precious boys are very close to Susanna’s heart, because she had the privilege of holding each of them when she visited the orphanage last August.  They desperately need to come home to their daddy and mommy, so they can begin to heal emotionally, have their needs met, and learn the love of a family!

Many of you have a cottage industry from which you are donating items.  This might be handmade items, or a home-based business like Thirty One Gifts, Avon or Discovery Toys.  For this auction I plan to link to your website, if you have one, in the auction listings.

Finally, there will be a few changes to the function of the auction this time.  One notable change will be that we are going to only accept Paypal payments this time.  Paypal is secure and allows the money to go directly to the family, without anyone else needing to handle it.

If you want to join the fun and help the Archers go get their boys, please read How the Auction Works!  We hope to see you at the auction later this week! And please don’t forget to pray that God would bless the work and multiply the gifts greatly on behalf of these little ones!

Bless you, each and every one, for all that you have done for the sake of these precious children who carry the imprint of God’s image and are His unique design.  We may not be able to help all of the millions of orphans on this planet.  However, we can rescue a few from one of its very darkest corners.  It matters!  They matter!
