A VERY SPECIAL SET OF AUCTIONS AWAY
Tonights auctions are a little different. Just launched are 174 auctions, all at $9.99 with no reserve. These auctions end on December 15th. What I am doing is donating 10% of the hammer price for all the auctions that end that day to the Ronald McDonald House charities. This donation is in part of the StyleForum initiative where they are running auctions to raise funds for the same cause. Last year, we raised almost $12,000 for the RMHC charities and I hope that we exceed it this year.
You can read more about what RMHC does here, and make your own contributions as well through their site.
We spend all year purchasing these beautiful and luxury items for ourselves, the least we can do is take the cost of one pocket square, a pair of shoes, or a new tie and help support a family that needs it this season.
So, while there is no top ten tonight as they are all winners, here are 9 suggested items that you should put a bid towards as they are awesome and will put a smile on a kids face.
1. Alden unlined suede shoes
2. RLPL handkerchief
3. Mark McNairy contrast saddles
4. Orange Hermes tie
5. Loro Piana cashmere blend sweater
6. NWT Drakes shantung tie
7. Ralph Lauren tartan suspenders
8. Barbour waxed cotton jacket
9. NWT Aran knit sweater
Please, tell your friends, place a bid for yourself or for a gift for someone you know, or donate directly and help a sick kid this season.
Speaking of which, in addition to this charity donation I am making, there is another one I am doing too. Another StyleForum member and fellow thrifter recently had a daughter, Emily. Emily was born with a heart condition and is currently on a waiting list for a heart transplant. He turns to the camaraderie of the boards on StyleForum for a small escape of being in the hospital all day.
What I am doing is matching 20% of this other ebay sellers sales from 12/1 - 12/25 and donating it to the hospital that Emily is staying in. A fellow forumite, CapnWes is matching my 20% donation as well.
I know most of you who follow me already follow lacasuarina, but in case you don’t….
See above for a great opportunity to help out this holiday season. Bid, and maybe win some great items, while simultaneously helping to raise money for Ronald McDonald House.
Don’t overlook the second part of the post above. Baby Emily is patiently awaiting a heart transplant. I (known to StyleForum as Capnwes) will be joining lacasuarina in matching 20% of this ebay seller’s sales up until Christmas Day. The donation will be made to the hospital that has been caring for Emily.
