Handmade For Christchurch

Have you checked out the Handmade for Christchurch auctions on Trade Me?  They're incredible!  Every item has been bid on -- sometimes up to 80 bids for a single item.  Apparently, there are hundreds of donations yet unlisted (there is a limit to how many listings can be created each day.)  It's amazing to see the energy and involvement behind the appeal -- I can only imagine how much money they'll raise.  Trade Me has forgone any listing or success fees and 100% of all proceeds go to the Red Cross and Christchurch Women's Refuge.  All of the work behind listings and correspondence with donors/bidders is being done on a rotating volunteer basis. 

So far, I've donated one item (as yet unlisted) and may donate more as the auctions continue.  This one-of-a-kind Vehicles Organic Kimono Onesie will be up for grabs.  Check out the auctions and bid bid bid for a very worth cause!

You can save Handmade for Christchurch as a favorite seller  to have their latest listings emailed to you.  Or become a liker on Facebook to support the H4C team and keep updated on all of their goings-on.
