Hi all, I am going to put in a plug for some great auctions going
on. I don't know if I had mentioned this group before, but Harold's
Liver Fund is raising money to pay for a liver transplant for the DH
of one of our fellow beaders, Charlene Booth. Things had kind of
slowed down, but there are now three pages of auctions at Just Beads,
under Charity Auctions.
I don't remember if it was in this group, but someone asked about a
beginner's kit. Charlene offers them, and she now has them up for
auction with a starting bid of $10 (normal price on her site is, I
think $16). I won one and I can tell you, they are awesome! You get
a variety of seed beads, a bead dish, nymo, needles, thread heaven,
and maybe even more - I can't remember.
If you need an excuse to buy beads, this is a good one. You get
great stuff, and are helping to save someone's life in the process.
Here is a snipurl to the site: ---Links-Are-Forbidden
the bottom and click on "Charity Auctions". Not all the auctions are
for Harold, but those that are will say so in the listing. There is
some gorgeous stuff, so even if you don't need anything. Go look,
Thanks for letting me post this. This is a cause I believe in
strongly, even though I don't, personally know Charlene. My hubby
has a terminal kidney disease, and we know it is just a matter of
time before he needs a transplant. Many times people have to wait
for donors, but Harold, Charlene's husband has one, they just need to
money to pay for the operation. Anyway, the beads are great, the
cause is good and it's good karma. What more can you ask for?
Thanks for your patience. Now go look! LOL (pushy, ain't I?)
