There is a website I used to be a member of that would choose a charity every few months or so, and hold an auction for donations. Forum members would donate cool items from their part of the country, home-made items, etc. Then their would be an auction for each item. All proceeds would go to the charity chosen. It is fun because forum members would donate really cool/funny items, and people would bid it up in the name of charity. I would love to volunteer to head it up or help. We could take a vote on what charity we would donate to. I thought of this because of the sweetie pie members who offered items for free. What do you all think? We may be obsessively shallow about our hand bag purchases (just repeating the thread title) but that does not mean we are not good people!!!!
