AUCTION




Here's my offering for Nie Nie Day.*** (I'm shameless. I'm cashing in on my little brother's success. But at least it's for a great cause, right?!) I'm opening the bid right now, and I will close it on Thursday September 4th 10 pm MST. 100% of the money from these auctions will go directly to the Nie Nie Recovery Fund.

AUCTION #1: A GUITAR (NEW) SIGNED BY MAROON5 Bidding starts at: $300

AUCTION #2: 2 TICKETS TO THE SEPTEMBER 10TH MAROON5 & COUNTING CROWS CONCERT IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA AT THE CRICKET WIRELESS PAVILLION Bidding starts at: $150

AUCTION #3: 2 TICKETS TO THE SEPTEMBER 10TH MAROON5 & COUNTING CROWS CONCERT IN PHOENIX, ARIZONA AT THE CRICET WIRELESS PAVILLION Bidding starts at: $150

*Thanks Jimmy V! I love you!* (and not in a creepy stalker way, but with awesome sisterly love)

How to Bid: Leave a comment in the comment section below with your bid amount. Bid increments must be no less than $1.00. The winner will submit payment to the Stephanie Nielson Fund Paypal Account and send the receipt to me to receive their prize.


***Design Mom, my dear friend, Gabby Blair, has made today "Nie Nie Day." There are auctions all over the blog world today, and all of the proceeds for all various items will go to Stephanie and Christian and their dear little family.

Here's what Gabby has to say about it:

NIE NIE DAY
When tragedy strikes someone we love, our hearts swell, and the urge to take action is almost relentless. I know many of us are feeling that way about Stephanie and Christian. We want to take action. To do something. Some of us know them personally. Some of us know them through Nie Nie Dialogues. Some of us just heard about them and can't seem to think of anything else.

Well. I am still feeling that urge to take action. So here I go. I'm officially declaring next Thursday, August 28th, Nie Nie Day. The plan: instead of my usual Giveaway, I'll be hosting a silent auction at Design Mom. With all proceeds going directly to the Stephanie & Christian Paypal fund. What's the prize? Well Ms. Impatient. You'll just have to wait until Thursday to find out. Although I promise it will be great. And something that Stephanie would love.

Sorry I'm not putting in a bid, but just wanted to check and make sure you posted about this on the Maroon 5 fan sites - I think you could potentially push up the bidding? You've probably already done it, but I wanted to make sure you covered all the bases...

Just wanted to tell everyone that the Maroon5/Counting Crows tour these tickets are for is an AMAZING concert. I know that the tickets for our show were running us $125 (plus fees) A PIECE. I'm not sure where these are located, but I would jump on these if I had more than oh....$26 in the bank.

What a great idea!

I just wanted to let you know that I gave the only thing that I can give right now, besides my prayers---a blog written to recognize Nie Nie day and to tell anyone that reads my blog---which isn't much---but for what it is worth, to visit the various sites for auctions, etc.

I hope it helps.

Lisa, I found your blog through Jay's sister and it has been fun reading it-now I remember why Jay loved hanging out with you guys so much. So sorry to hear about Stephanie, but glad to hear that she is making progress. Good luck with the auctions, if I played the guitar or lived in Phoenix, I would bid, and Jay really wants Christopher to write a blog about him, but it got a little pricey-which is great! Take care!

Madsen Family said...

Wow! So Impressed with all the responses on the auctions. I have some autographed sports things on my blog being auctioned off, and MORE TO COME!!! People keep calling to donate which is amazing. I don't have much traffic going to my blog so I was wondering if you have any suggestions to sway some people over? Anything will help to raise this money for the Nielsons. (I know a lot of Christian's siblings)
