Thank you! Thank you!

Someone's getting a cake....and someone's getting some great pictures!! The two auctions are now closed. You can still get Pampered Chef though!
Thanks so much!
You can still donate. A new auction is starting November 2nd.
In the comfort of my home everyday I can only imagine spending so much time in the hospital as the Skinners have had too! They still have quite a ways to go, let's not forget that! My prayer is that they can soon lead a normal life outside of the hospital.
Thanks again!

Thanks to everyone so far on bidding and donating to the Skinners. I can't believe how much we've already raised together, and am amazed and humbled by the generosity. Remember the biddings are not over yet, and hopefully we'll have a few more things up for auction here soon. I've had quite a few people wonder how to bid and wonder where the bids are at. To see the last bid go to the bottom of the post that you would like to bid on and you'll see "comments". There you can see where the bid is at and bid higher than the last person. Even just $5 above the previous bidder will secure the item. (That is, unless someone comes after and bids more) If you want to remain anonymous just e-mail me and I'll post the higher bid for you.

Also, don't forget you can just go here and simply donate.
You can also help by adding Benson and Claire's button to your blog to get the word out. Click on the button to the right and you'll see the download info.
(don't understand how to do it...e-mail me)
So glad that little Claire is feeling a little better. You're in our thoughts and prayers Skinners.
Thanks again everyone!
Keep checking back for more auctions to bid on!!

{2nd Giveaway For Claire and Benson's Cause}

I am so excited about this giveaway!
This donation will once again go to the Skinner family.
Click on the button to the right to find out more.

The auctioned item is one session with Katie Wells Photography. It can be for an individual child, or for a family session up to 5 people. The session includes a set of 4 x 6 printed proofs, as well as a copyright released cd with all proofs saved in color and in chocolate.
If you have ever been to Katie you know how talented she is! She is very patient and fun with children and takes AMAZING pictures! You won't be able to choose from the pictures that you get. Even if you live a few hours away, believe me, it's worth the drive!
Check out her site: katiewellsphotography.com
Even if you don't need pictures, you might know of someone having a baby, or that would love to have a family photo session.
She does beautiful gift certificates.
(starts at $30 and believe me...is worth so much more)
Post your bid amount, and your e-mail on comments below.

Cake for a cause!!

See the new button on my blog over to the right?? Click on it and read about cute little Claire, Benson and their sweet family. Jared went to school with us and he and John are good friends. Money and bills should be the least of their troubles right now. Not that we can pay all of their bills, but every little piece of the pie, or in this instance, CAKE helps right? So..think about an event that you might need a cake for (ie. work party, birthday, wedding, baby shower, thank you, anniversary, holidays, so many reasons for a cake) and let's start the bidding!!!! Two tier, whatever flavor....send me pictures of what you might have in mind. (I might even post them as the bids starts, fun huh??) Bid by leaving a comment, the amount, and your e-mail address. (If you want to be anonymous then e-mail me at allishaandjohnmoss@gmail.com and let me know what your bid is)
Of course all the proceeds go to Jared's family.

(Bid will end October 18th @ 7:00 P.M)
(Starts at $30)

(Not a cake of mine, just a fun idea)

Just another idea. If you have a trick of some trade you can do an auction on, put it on your blog to help out, or let me know and I'll post it on here to bid on! Let's help this wonderful family with their very difficult struggle. (If you do an auction on your blog let me know and I'll link it.)

ADDED NOTE: I've had a few people want me to mention that you can't even get a buttercream wedding cake for less than $100 at a grocery store. This is a fondant cake AND...I will increase this to a three tier cake. If you know anyone getting married, having a big holiday dinner or work party....have them visit the site. It would be a GREAT price for them. A three tier cake will feed atleast 115 people!! Thanks everyone!
