It's Silent Auction Time!
Have you heard?
The Educated Mommy annual online Facebook Silent Auction is coming up!!
What is the Silent Auction, you ask? Well, it's only our BIGGEST fundraiser of the year! As you probably know, Educated Mommy is our non-profit organization that brings you amazing classes, support groups, events, and lactation support all for free or at greatly reduced pricing all year long. We serve literally hundreds of people in our community, and we want to continue to be able to offer the amazing services we have for years to come!
As a non-profit, we depend on donations from people like you and fundraisers to make our services continually available to those we serve.
Ok, so now for the nitty-gritty. How can you help (I get it - I know you are wondering)?
First of all, we need donations to auction off! So, if you are a crafter, a baker, a candlestick maker...or you know - pretty much anything you have to offer - we would love to put an item or service from you on the auction! Ideas for donations include (but are not in any way limited to): sewed items, crafted items, baked goods, salon services, massage services, gift cards to pretty much anywhere, zoo tickets, Washington Pavilion tickets, entertainment tickets, sports tickets, gas cards, electronics, anything natural parenting related, anything family related, anything that someone could give as a gift to someone they know, anything that someone could consume, anything that someone could put on their skin or their kiddos' skin. The possibilities are endless, really.
If you would like to donate to the auction, please let me know ASAP! You can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org or just PM our Facebook page.
Now, for those of you who are super excited to participate (i.e. SHOP!!), have no fear - we will be posting all the details for you on Friday 8/21/15 in our Facebook chat group (if you haven't yet, you should totally join the group!), as well as on both our Facebook pages (Elegant Mommy & Educated Mommy)....be watching!
The auction will be held 8/21/15 - 8/23/15 - we'll see you then - happy bidding!!
