Blogging has introduced me to some incredible people, families and stories and one that touched my heart was the story of Tuesday Fiona Whitt, who lost her 8 month battle with stage 4 neuroblastoma in January of this year. The support from her mother, Jessica's group of friends is so touching. They came up with the idea to put together an annual blog party to help raise funds to fight pediatric cancer, specifically neuroblastoma, as it is the least funded of ALL cancers and one of the most fatal. What particularly moved me was the fact that Tuesday was a twin and this idea also serves as a Mothers day gift for Jess - for whom this year will without a doubt be difficult - all the firsts after a death is so difficult.
From May 5th to the 12th, I will be hosting several book giveaways. All you have to do to enter to win this auction is simply leave me a comment letting me know you are interested in winning the particular item and then, be sure to donate $1 to the Tuesday Fiona Whitt Foundation. I will do 3 separate posts in order to give you the chance to bid on each set of items separately. I will then let each of the kids do a draw for one of the items and show you the winning number.
Also, head on over to the Tuesday Blog Party to see what other fantastic items are being auctioned off by clicking the image below.
There are lots of great auctions going on and all it costs is one dollar to enter each one.
If you would like to make one donation, instead of many individual donations, please feel free to donate however is easiest for you.
If you end up donating $10, but only find 5 auctions you are interested in, you can use those additional dollars as additional entries :)
Thank you so much for supporting a great cause and remember to have fun!
