Save the Boobies with the Not So Silent, Silent Auction

I have some fantastic news… and some not so fantastic news that I’m hoping to fix!

The Fantastic News!

Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back has edged our way up to being one of the Top 10 Team fund raisers for the walk, as we’ve raised a little over $21k so far… and we’re not through yet!

The Not So Fantastic News

When folks sign up to do the Avon Breast Cancer Walk, they agree to raise a minimum of $1,800 in order to actually participate in the walk. So while our team is doing great, we do have a few walkers that need some help hitting their minimum goal.

We’ve trained hard for the walk and have worked out butts off fundraising, so the last thing I’d want is to not have a team mate be able to walk with us.

With this weighing heavy on my mind, I’ve come up with plan to help them out with hitting their goal and I’m crossing my fingers that it will work!

The Opportunity

Affiliate Marketers Give Back will be holding what we’re calling the “Not So Silent, Silent Auction”, which will begin next week on http://www.AffiliateMarketersGiveBack.com.

We are asking individuals and companies to please help us by considering a donation of an item or services for us to auction off on the website, so that we can help get all of our team over the finish line.

Donated items will be listed on the website (along with information on the donor and a link back to their website) and folks can bid for the items by providing their name and bid amount in the comment section of the post. Winners will be announced after the auction ends and will also receive a link back to their website.

How You Can Donate an Item

If you would like to donate an item or your services, please send me an email containing the item or service description, estimated value and any images that you might like to include.

Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back has never left a team mate behind, and we don’t want to start now. So please help us out if you can by donating an item to the auction. It’s a great way to get your name and services out in front of the masses and a great way to help raise money to fight breast cancer.

Thank you for your support.

I have reason to believe the "thing" Lisa Picarille and myself will be putting up for auction will be the best seller.

I dunno… you're going to be competing with vacations, software, marketing assistance, classes, gifts and other amazing branding offers. That being said, I'm totally going to be bidding on your "thing".

Good idea, Missy. Sending out emails to all of my clients to see if/what they can contribute to the auction.

Thanks Geno. We just need a little more to get the rest of our folks over the finish line. I'm hoping we can hit it this way!
