Online Auction for Diabetes Research

Help Find a Cure

Since I’ve been blog-challenged of late, I thought I’d piggyback off my friend Lynn Reynolds’ blog today.

Lynn is showcasing author Brenda Novak’s 5th annual online auction to raise money for diabetes research, which runs throughout the month of May. All proceeds from this year’s auction will be donated to The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami.

Brenda, whose son suffers from juvenile diabetes, has raised over $500,000 for diabetes research.

Items to be auctioned range from a personalized tour of Edgar Allen Poe’s house, celebrity autographed items, laptops, gift baskets, a high-definition TV, lunch with famous writers, vacation getaways, even a day of bridge with a famous player.

Lynn has put together a wonderful gift basket of spa items, containing bath salts, soaps, moisturizer, bath gel, a pink iPOD shuffle, and an iTunes gift card, among other items.

And if you’ve been drooling over the new Amazon Kindle, look no further. A group of writers from The Wild Rose Press are offering a Kindle and a $70 gift certificate. Bidding will continue throughout the month, so check out all the fabulous items and bid. There’s something for everyone.
