From Amy Rainey, administrator of the Hidden Treasures online auctions:
Our October Hidden Treasures auction kicks off next Monday, October 1st, with Christiana’s Chance! I am so excited that we have the blessed opportunity to help this precious girl come home to her Forever Family. We have some fun items lined up for our auction, but there is always room for more!
Every single item and every single bid is so important. If you have plans to donate this month, could you please let me know soon? (If you haven’t already, of course!)
Is time an issue for you right now? I know how you feel, we are still finding our new schedule with the new school year and accompanying activities! May I suggest a gift card donation? A gift card is so easy to do, either by ordering online and having it sent directly to the winning bidder, or by picking it up while you are in line at the grocery store. Gift cards are always popular in our auctions, and the only shipping cost is that of a stamp!
Another easy option is to choose something that you can purchase online and have shipped directly to the winning bidder at the end of the auction. Many online retailers such as Amazon have a large number of items that even ship for free. If you choose to do this, simply send me a link to the item you wish to donate!
Of course, we are glad to have traditional donations as well. Handcrafted items, books, that lovely gift that you received that isn’t quite your style, etc.
We have an incredibly creative group of supporters, and you continually surprise me with your unique donation ideas!
Thank you, in advance, for your consistent and loving support of families who are pursuing treasures from Pleven. The return on investment in the lives of these children is truly inestimable. Each act of kindness shouts to the world that they matter!
Bless you all….and I am so glad to be back!
