What kind of handmade stuff will you buy at a charity auction?

November 8th, 2012 2 comments

I’m good at sewing and crafting, and I’ve been asked to donate to a charity auction. I want to make sure that they will get good bids on the items I donate, but I’m not sure what to make.
What would you consider bidding on at an auction?

Will there be new mothers there?

Maybe you could make nursing shields? They’re very simple, basically a yard of fabric and you’re just finishing the edges, adding a strap, and some plastic boning at the neck. There are free patterns online
Otherwise you could make infant slings, also very easy once you buy the "sling rings" for them

Just a thought!

Otherwise, what about some really cute aprons? Not the boring ones your grandma wore .. I love sassy aprons 🙂

What’s the best way to start an online Charity Auction?

There’s a couple in our town who are in bad financial trouble and I want to help them. I thought that an online charity auction would be a great way to do this, except that I have nothing to sell. I think that it would be awesome if I could get 120,000 people to give $1 each, who’d miss a dollar? And that would be the way to get donations. Maybe an auction isn’t a good idea? If not, how would I go about getting plenty of publicity for getting donations?

what you do is you steel a dollar from 120,000 people.
like you said who would miss a dollar

I’m working on an auction to raise funds for the local animal rescue. I know that a rescue once sent wooden cutouts of dog bones to celebrities and had them decorate/sign them. They had an amazing turn out. What is something we can do of that nature (that is not copying their idea) to raise some money? We just need a creative idea of something that could be mailed to celebrities that they could sign/decorate/make their own.

Decorate T-Shirts That are in Really big size(that way people can keep them longer.),Then sign it.I did it once people Love it.Its not the most creative but it is worth a try.

I thought it’d be fun to be auctioned off in a charity auction where the people bid on other people. Anyone know how I can get in on this? I figured it’d be a fun way to help out.

Start the auction yourself at your school. Find a charity to donate the money to, and make some posters. Get a bunch of guys and girls to donate a date for charity…. and then let the bidding begin. It will be fun, and maybe you will get a bidding war going for yourself??? For even more fun, see if a teacher who is cool will be the auctioneer. Good luck bro!
