Online Bake Sale for Sam’s Fund

May 27, 2013

BIG NEWS!! WE’VE EXTENDED THE BAKE SALE TO WEDNESDAY, MAY 29 AT 9AM EST! GET YOUR BID ON!!!

 

Welcome to the Online Bake Sale for Sam’s Fund!

I’m helping my friend Miranda raise money for this amazing charity. She is participating in a half marathon on June 9th in honor of her friend Sam who took his own life in January of this year. The half marathon is hosted by Sam’s family who has set up a charity in his name to raise money for suicide prevention. You can read more about the fund and it’s mission here.

[I will be out of town on the day of the bake sale since we had a recent death in the family, so Miranda will be operating the bake sale]

Before you start bidding on the goodies, please make sure to read ALL the rules:

First off, please remember that all donations from this bake sale will go directly to Sam’s Fund.

Each item will have a minimum bid of $10. Once the items are officially posted all buyers will then e-mail mirandacpressley@gmail.com with a bid of what they would like to purchase.

To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail Miranda at mirandacpressley@gmail.com 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 9am EST on Tuesday, May 28  to submit their bid for the auction.

Since I will be out of town, Miranda will be updating the current bids in the COMMENT SECTION so that you can see the current bid on each item. 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. Winner can expect their goodies with 5 to 7 days after the bake sale, as long as shipping address has been received promptly

Each winner will then donate the specified amount to Sam’s Fund. Once the donation goes through Miranda 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.

 

AND NOW FOR THE GOODIES! Remember, the bake sale ends on Tuesday, May 28 at 9 am EST

I got an email today from some of my co-workers that 9 of them pitched in $5 each to donate $45 total to Sam’s Fund and I’ll make them cookies in return. I am so touched that they would do that.
