The time has come for our next auction over at Hidden Treasures. This month we have the privilege of ministering to the Booth family through Mission: Makayla. Sweet Makayla is waiting in Pleven for her new family. How different her life will soon be…so different from her first eleven years. She will soon know the love and care of a family that is eager to bring her home.
We have the opportunity to be a small part of this redemption story!
The auction begins tonight at midnight, June first. Donations are welcome through June second! If you have an item of worth that you would like to offer, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org. I invite you all to visit Hidden Treasures and see all of the lovely items that have been donated for Makayla. We have gift cards from a variety of retailers, handmade items, a new iPad 3, an e-Reader, jewelry, some very nice books and much more.
I have another request for you this month. Due to some family commitments, I will not be able to coordinate the next auction. It will run August 1-7. A sweet supporter, Hollie, has volunteered to set up the auction, create the listings, and get everything running. We need another individual who would be willing to close out that August auction. It would require a significant time commitment from August 8-10 (approximately). Essentially, this individual would organize winning bids, invoice winners for payment, monitor those payments as they come in, and then connect the winners with the donors of the items that they’ve won. This requires sending around 200 emails over a 48-72 hour period. This individual will need to be very detail-oriented. The closure of an auction creates a flurry of activity and it must be handled carefully or chaos is sure to ensue. I am glad to share more details about this, just send an email to the above address.
I will be back in October, Lord willing, so I expect this to be a one-time commitment. I appreciate your prayerful consideration. We are praying for the individual who will step up to help us continue this ministry to families who are adopting precious children who matter!
Blessings to you all,
UPDATE! Thank the Lord that a wonderful reader named Crystal responded immediately to the need above, and will be helping close out the August Hidden Treasures auction!
Crystal, you are an answer to prayer! Bless you!
