Great Auction, Great Cause

I love auctions and always have. There is something about the thrill of the bid, which I guess explains why ebay is so successful. But this upcoming auction on Meals and Moves is not only jammed packed with amazing items (trips, gift cards, website design, books, baked goods, and so much stuff I love to boot), but 100% of the proceeds are going to a great cause.

Susan, get well soon!
A 25 year-old blogger from Canada named Susan was recently diagnosed with Lymphoma cancer. You can read her blog and about her progress here. Though there is universal health care in Canada, not all of Susan's treatments are covered and going through chemo and radiation will leave her with a lot of out of pocket expenses. The blogging community put this auction together to raise money that Susan will need to cover treatment that isn't taken care of and expenses associated with being out of work and in the hospital.

The bidding opens tomorrow at 8am EST. Get your week off to a good start by doing something nice for someone else and you just might walk away with a great deal on something you love in return. It's also so nice to see how many people donated items to the auction. I'll be participating and thinking about Susan and wishing her a speedy recovery. She is exactly my age, and this is a chilling reminder that life can take scary turns. It's nice to think that at least we can help each other navigate them.

Here's to fighting the good fight,
<3 Stacy, Lola & Zoe

Edit: This event raised $26, 432. Wow!
