Are You Excited For THE BAKE SALE?

January 22, 2011

I hope you all have marked your calendars by now for my online bake sale! I am so anxious to open up the bake sale to everyone. There are so many mouthwatering goodies to bid on, definitely something for everyone!

The bake sale will begin at 7am EST on Monday, January 31, and will go all day until 9pm EST.

I know many of you are curious as to how an online bake sale works, so here’s an outline of the Rules and Logistics, so you have a clear idea of how this works.

Online Bake Sale Rules and Logistics:

First off, please remember that all donations from this bake sale will go directly to my Team In Training efforts to benefit the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. You will be supporting a great cause and helping to make a huge difference in the lives of many.

On Monday, January 31st at 7am EST. I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $15. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail with a bid of what they would like to purchase.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at any bids left in the comments section will not be reviewed, only bids e-mailed will be considered official and affirmative.

Think of the bid as a silent auction of sorts. All buyers will have until 9pm EST to submit their bid for the auction.

I will be updating the current bids at the bottom of the bake sale post throughout the day so that you can see the current high bid. I am hoping this will encourage others to bid higher for the items they really want or bid for items that have not had a bid yet.

All winners will be announced a few hours after the bake sale has closed

Each winner will then donate the specified amount to my TNT fundraising page. Once the donation goes through I will e-mail the baker the winner’s address and it will be the baker’s responsibility to send the baked goods to the winner within 72 hours.

The winner has 24 hours to make the online donation. If in that time frame the donation is not made, the next highest bidder will be contacted or the item will go back up for bid.

A preview of the goodies will be posted on Sunday, January 30th so that you have time to look over your options and get ready to bid on your must-have items.

Please remember that this bake sale is to help raise money for Team In Training.

This is a fantastic idea. My cousins son just turned 6 and will soon be finishing up his 3 1/2 years of treatment for Leukemia. If there is still time I would love to participate.

I am definitely going to pass your sale info along on my facebook page and blog. Thanks for helping such a great cause!
