Not related to the travel group, but I thought I would throw this out there. I think I've mentioned to some of you that I'm raising money for the BC Cancer Foundation, and will be participating in the ride to conquer cancer. Part of this is an online auction I'll be holding from May 7-15.
I have already found a few items, but more is always better! I'm wondering if anyone has anything lying around that they'd be willing to donate? Perhaps a Christmas gift that you have no need for. Or if you/friend have a business, and would be interested in donating a gift certificate, please let me know. I can offer advertising when we post the auction, and a tax reciept for the value it sells for (if you want a specific amount, I can always put a reserve price).
This Christmas, my co-worker and friend was diagnosed with Stage 4 Leukemia. She was a member of our team, and was planning to do the ride with us. Last year, I rode for my Mother in Law, who was recovering from advanced breast cancer. I know cancer has been around for ages, and isn't the "IT" cause right now- but it's still here, and there's still no cure. I'm hoping that we can aggressively target this disease, and get rid of it once and for all. I would really appreciate any items you could donate, no matter how small.
And thank you for your time to read this!
