AUCTION for a GOOD CAUSE

Today is the day!  Brave Girls Club is having a 24 hour auction to raise money to purchase a safe house, Dahlia House, in Manila for girls rescued from sex trafficking.  This is REAL, the girls are REAL and the need is UNFATHOMABLE.  Please check out the auction and see all the lovely items, many handmade, donated.  Every penny raised will go to Dahlia House.  Here’s the link: http://auctions.readysetauction.com/fullcircleexchangein/catalog/view/2/2

This is my contribution to the auction.  This sign collage is very near and dear to me and my family, it sits right next to our kitchen table and is a silent reminder to all of us as we stop by during the day.  A message of hope and optimism.  Because it means so much to me, I need to donate it to this most worthy of causes.  IMG_3069edit

You get to bid on this!!!  I’m shamelessly going to BEG you to do so!!!  It’s 9×9 canvas on a wood frame, and its slathered with layers and textures and embellishments. It’s a sturdy 2″ deep so it can sit on a shelf or table or be hung on the wall.IMG_3073edit

All proceeds go to Dahlia House.  And I will match whatever this brings in, or $100, whichever is greater.

IMG_3074editI actually fantasize that this is hung up somewhere in Dahlia House, as another reminder to those brave brave girls that they are loved and things will get better.  Guess I’ll have to make another one!

HURRY ON OVER TO THE AUCTION.  IT ALL ENDS TOMORROW (FRIDAY) NIGHT AT MIDNIGHT.  THANK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  2. Hi Lisa,
    By the time I saw your post it was too late to bid BUT I have to tell you…this entire week, at SSU there has been a large group of our college kids bringing awareness to human trafficking which for some creepy reason is really big right here in good old Sonoma county. It’s amazing what these kids are doing to raise money for this worthwhile and very real problem, all over the world as well as right in our own backyard. Good for you I hope your beautiful creation raised a lot of $$$$ !!

    • Hey Nancy! I’d like to learn more about what is being done and what more we can do to work on this here at home. I’ve done some searching online, but have not turned up anything promising. I’d love to hear more about this from you. Maybe our group can look into this too. Love your dear sweet heart!!!!

  3. I didn’t know this was yours!!! I loved it, but I spent cash on boots! 😉 can wait to see the one you do for the Dahlia House. 😉 It’ll be a housewarming of sorts!! XoXo

    • HeeHee!!! Ya, it was mine. But now it’s Coreena’s, LOL!!! The little scamp won it in the auction and its on its way to Canada right now. Makes me feel SO GOOD that its going to her!!!
