CureSearch Auction 2012!

EDIT: Congratulations to this year’s winner, Sarah Johnson! I have decided to match Sarah’s winning bid of $20, so I’ll be donating $40 to Brian’s CureSearch Walk page tonight! Thanks, all, see you next year.

I intended to post the 2012 Curesearch Auction (check out 2011’s auction!) earlier in the month, but I got married on the 13th and then went straight out on our honeymoon, so it kind of got lost in the shuffle. So now, we’re going to have a lightning FIVE DAY SUPER-INTENSE MEGA AUCTION!

How would you like to buy a super-cozy pair of my “Give A Hoot” mitts AND contribute towards finding a cure for pediatric cancer?

Give a Hoot Mitts - Oatmeal

My friend Brian is participating in the 2012 Charlotte CureSearch Walk, and I wanted to figure out a way to contribute. Here at Through The Looking, we love kids and hate cancer, so we’re auctioning off a pair of these mitts in oatmeal (the color shown). Bidding starts *now* and will remain open through midnight (EST) on Halloween!

Brian has this to say last year:

Dear Friends,
Please support me in my efforts to raise money for pediatric cancer research. I have been a supporter of CureSearch for several years now as they are one of the leading organizations dedicated to finding a cure for pediatric cancers. Please visit my personal donation page.
Thanks!!

You can donate directly on Brian’s page.

Halloween Mitts - Charity Auction!

For more information about the mitts, and to see a few more pictures, please see the normal etsy listing, but do *not* bid there.  (Feel free to do some shopping, though!  10% of ALL sales between now and October 31st at midnight will also be donated to CureSearch!)

To bid on the mitts, please comment on this post with your name and bid amount. Make sure you enter your email address when commenting – it won’t be visible, but I need it so I can contact the winner!

The bidding starts at $5, do I hear $5?

THE FINE PRINT:
Bidding will be open until midnight (EST) on Halloween, at which time I will notify the winner and create a custom Etsy listing for them to purchase, reflecting their winning bid amount!

Please note, once you’ve commented with a bid you are responsible to pay that amount unless you are outbid. Whoever has the highest bid at midnight on Halloween will be notified that they’ve won. The winner will have 48 hours to pay for the item through Etsy (a link will be sent via email). If the winning bidder does not pay within 48 hours, they give up their right to the item. The second highest bidder will then be contacted, and so on and so forth.

Of the winning bid, $5 goes to Through The Looking to cover materials and Etsy fees, all other proceeds will be donated directly to Brian’s CureSearch page in the winning bidder’s name.
