2nd Mercy House Benefit Day


On November 7, 2011, I will be hosting our 2nd Silent Auction to benefit Mercy House. And we need YOUR help!

How it will work: In increments of 30 minutes, all day long, we will publish a new item up for auction. If you want to bid, you will leave a comment with your bid amount. Each comment is a bid, with the last comment being the winner–just like a silent auction. The Benefit Day will end at 11 pm CST on November, 9th.

Donate an Item: This is a fabulous way to get FREE ADVERTISING for your store or product and your own post write-up with links (and support a great cause)! All the cool kids are doing it! We will limit the auction to around 30 items (25 14 spots left as of now), they must be a minimum of $75 in value. Please send your interest to mercyhousekenya@gmail.com (Once approved, you will need to send a picture(s), item description, value and mail item(s) to winner).

Highest Bidders: Will be announced in a new blog post and invoiced via Paypal.

All proceeds from the silent auction will benefit the new counseling department of The Mercy House. We recognize the need for intensive one on one therapy for each of our pregnant girls and have hired a qualified counselor to do so. Monthly cost is a minimum of $250 (goes up with each girl). We are hoping this Benefit Auction will pay for the entire 2012 year! Your non-cash donation is tax deductible if you request a receipt!


Special thanks to the two amazing friends who are heading up the Mercy Benefit Day: Eryn of Mama Hall and Jamie of Six Bricks High, my volunteer virtual assistant. You girls are a blessing to me!

    Will you post more as the time approaches, so that some people (ahem. me) don’t forget? This sounds so great and I would love to be a part of it!

    I’d love to donate some things for your auction, and was wondering if I could donate more than one item to make up that $75 value minimum. I make thank you notes and invitations and whatnot, so most of my non-custom work is under the $75 value.

    I would also love to donate to the Mercy House. I make jewelry with beads that are made by women, mostly widows, in Uganda. My goal is to support widows and orphans. We support widows by buying their beads and helping them to have a sustainable income generating business. We are supporting orphans by raising money for our own international adoption and bringing two orphans home to have a forever family in our family. I make all the jewelry that I sell to highlight the beautiful Ugandan paper beads. I would like to donate for the silent auction if more than one item could be used to add up to be $75. None of the items that I sell are over $75 individually, but I would certainly put some together to be that amount.
    Please let me know if this would work out. I have followed your blog for a while and am so impressed with God’s leading in your life and the life of your family.
