As many of you know, my family and I will be walking in a 5K on May 15 to raise money for Lurie Children's Hospital. We tried something a little different this year and had a book themed online auction. The auction closed yesterday (Thursday) and our total raised was over $300!
This mama's heart is just over flowing! I'd like to take the chance to say thank you to several groups of people:
Our donors - This auction would not have happened without you! To the authors - Thank you for sharing your hard work and wonderful words. To the bloggers and other donors - Thank you for helping to spread the book love via paperback and gift card donations. If you didn't get a chance to see the auction or bid, it would be wonderful if you could show our donors some love by visiting Facebook pages.
-Darlene and Dexter's Book Nook
The Folks who helped spread the word - Thank you for sharing information about the auction or letting me slip in and share information on your site/pages. Every time a new bidder signed up my heart got just a little warmer!
-Cocktails and Books
-Kylie's Fiction Addiction
-Cool Hookers Book Club
-Reviews By Reds
Go give these guys some love too, please (and let them know we sent you :)
Our bidders - Thank you for directing shopping dollars our way! Hopefully, you were able to get a book you had been really wanting or will be happy with the surprises that are coming your way. I'm not going to list you guys to respect privacy, but please know how incredibly grateful we are to you!
