Yes folks, it is finally here. The auction. I have been stressing. The team at Brandy’s Battle has been stressing. I have been designing and customizing the new site like a mad woman, with a lot of help from my friends. The CSS on the theme i picked is, uh, hellish, shall we say? I LOVE the theme. It’s pretty damn snazzy, But ooh doggie is it a bitch to customize when you want to do way more than the basic font color changing. However, it is all getting done now and will be wrapped up in a pretty bow for you all to bid on come 9am tomorrow morning. We have so many great items for you to bid on. I promise you will not be disappointed.
All items will be auctioned off in categories. So all the baby items will go up for bid at the same time, web services & blog design in another, etc. etc., until we are done. I expect each group to stay open for bidding for 4-6 hours in order to give each different time zone a fair chance at the goods.
Now, even after this auction ends and all the proceeds are donated to Brandy, we still have a long way to go in supporting her medical expenses and her battle. If we can raise another $10,000 – $15,000, – yes, we are shooting for the moon here – it’s either go big or go home – then Brandy will be able to focus on her family and her recovery instead of stressing out about her medical bills.
We have high hopes for planning a second auction at the beginning to middle of of July or early August so mark the date in your calendar and keep Brandy’s Battle in mind as we get towards Blogher season. We are also hoping to raise additional funds for Brandy in other ways and would love to hear any suggestions or ideas you might have to help us reach our goal!
BrandysBattle.com hopes to be a destination for not only friends and supporters of Brandy, but also to serve as a resource for those diagnosed with medical conditions who need a support network online. If you or someone you know fits this qualification, please reach out to us through the contact page to see if we can assist you in any way. Please remember that you are never alone and you have friends online.
Please check back here at Last Shreds Of Sanity and on BrandysBattle.com for updates on the auction – happy bidding!
