Charities have had to get savvy, cool and happening to keep up with our lifestyles and ensure they are hanging out in the same places we are. They need to remind us of reasons to give and give us a bit of a prod (sometimes with an electric cattle zapper prodder).
But sometimes you can support a charity, shop online and get a bargain (woohoo, HAT TRICK!)
Project 18 is a charity set up by an Aussie woman to look after Bali's street kids. One of her fundraising tools is to have a monthly auction of donated goods on facebook, bound to grow over time but there are currently not alot of people bidding for some desirable stuff. Last month I forgot to click back and bid on an item - RRP $440 which sold for $85. The August auction is on in a week - Tues 24 August - and the theme is 'handmade stuff'. There are some quirky individual pieces up for grabs which I have my eye on:
|Cool bag for the pool, or trendier than my current nappy bag.|
|stylish tees for the girls|
|just so cute, can see it with little denim skirt and walnut red shoes|
|Just fun to have, I am sure to fill it with something.|
