Wow! Where has May gone??? I had no idea we were this close to the end of two incredible opportunities.
First one – –
There is only 5 DAYS LEFT for the Brenda Novak Annual Auction for the Cure of Diabetes 2011. This is a wonderful, awesome, incredible auction set up to raise money to help find a cure for diabetes. Brenda Novak set this up in honor of her youngest son who was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes at the age of 5. During the entire month of May, authors, readers, crafters and so many other generous people donate items to raise money for this cause. My group blog, The Petit Fours and Hot Tamales, jumped in the fray last year and ended up receiving the Blog of the Year award. That was pretty cool.
This year we have upped our game and are competing against some other wonderful bloggers. A little friendly competition where EVERYONE wins in the end.
Take a moment and check out the listings. I’ve even jumped in with a donation of my own featuring 14 Writer’s Digest Reference books. These are packed with a ton of information that would be a tremendous asset to any writer’s library. The time is almost over. Don’t miss out!!!
