Hi Friends I am so excited to have my first ever blogger bake sale to raise money for St. Judes Heroâ€™s.
First of all I want to remind everyone that 100% of the proceeds from this bake sale go directly to St. Jude Heroâ€™s. You will be supporting a great cause and helping to inspire hope in young children battling cancer.
Iâ€™m sure many of you are very curious how this Blogging Bake Sale and thanks to Meghann I think I got it down. We shall see 🙂 I am sure with all of your help it will be a huge success!
Tomorrow or Today (depending what time your reading this) 7:00 am PST, I will post all of the items each baker has donated. Each item will have a minimum bid of $20. Once the items are officially posted all bidders must e-mail this address (firstname.lastname@example.org) with a bid of what they would like to purchase.
To have an official bid on an item you must e-mail me at email@example.com and 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 midnight PST to submit their bid for that dayâ€™s auction. Throughout the day, I will be posting a bidding section at the bottom of this post to keep you all updated. 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.
Once a reader has won the bid on an item they will then donate the specified amount to my St. Jude Heroâ€™s Page, When they leave the donation, they must put what they have won in the bake sale in personal message section.
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.
Each day over the week, all of the baked goods still up for sale will be reposted in auction format until Friday the 21st when the bake sale ends.
Please let me know if you have any questions or comments regarding the Bake Sale Format. I am really excited for this fun event and know it will be a success!!
Bake Sale will be live at 7am PST!!
