Appeals, auction, animals!

Bloggie pals!

Gorgeous Catdownunder has alerted me to this fabulous global auction  "Authors for the Philippines" where you may bid for online writing courses, mentoring, signed copies of books, critiques from literary agents etc etc! 

All proceeds to go to the British Red Cross to help those affected by typhoon Haiyan. 

Hurry, the auction ends on the 20th November!

There is also of course the Humane Society International  for the poor animals affected too.

Charlie says: I bid successfully for this chair.


Have a lovely week y'all!

That auction sounds like a pretty neat idea. People are more willing to give money when they're getting something in return. Which sounds kinda strange but it's true.

Natalie Aguirre said...

Thanks for letting us know about the auction. It sounds like a great way to raise money for all those poor people who are suffering.

My heart goes out to the people of the Philippines. I donated to the International Red Cross--hope they get aid quickly! I will also check out the link you provided--thanks!

My kitty loves my desk chair too! But sometimes sharing it with her while I work on my computer takes some negotiating. Usually she lets me if she can sit in my lap and get petted.

These are two great links for helping out in the Philippines.

Hi Old Kitty - what a great idea .. I sure hope 'one of us wins' ...

Charlie looks ready for a lap, then a nap!

Happy week - Hilary

Fingers and paws crossed for lots of donations. We donated via the Canadian Red Cross--our government is matching donations made to bona fide registered charities until early December. (Usually does, for disaster relief.)

Jemi Fraser said...

I'm always so glad to hear of people helping out where they can! I'll check out the auction :)

Marg said...

Good deal Charlie on getting that chair. All of us around here vie for the Person's computer chair. Hope you win what ever you have bid on that auction. What fun. Take care.

Alex J. Cavanaugh said...

Glad they didn't forget the animals.
Charlie isn't giving up his chair, is he?

Marilia Bavaresco said...

Great advice!!!
Charlie: kiss on your nose!

Hannah and Lucy said...

We hope no-one out bid you for that chair Charlie as we'd hate for you to have to sit on the floor.
Luv Hannah and Lucy xx xx

Hi Old Kitty,

The finer aspects of humanity have come to the forefront. And during such devastating times for our brothers and sisters in the Philippines, we shall unite to be there for those people with such resilient spirit...
