I know what I said about taking a break. Did you really believe that, silly people?! That would be about as likely as me switching from dark roast to green tea. Or baking banana bread without chocolate chips. It just isn't done.
Here's how it's happening, beginning tomorrow, June 10, 2008. Every day for the next, undisclosed period of time, I plan to post a new bag. If you like it, and you want it, wave your little number like the seed-chewing old guys do at the olden-days farm auctions. Except I won't be able to see your number waving, so it will work better to leave me a comment or e-mail indicating how much the bag is worth to you. If the blog doesn't accept your comment, and you e-mail, then I will communicate the increment change at the blog myself. The bid begins at $25.00 and must go up in full numbers. The bids will close daily at 6:oo pm, unless otherwise noted. I reserve the right to extend that time at my own discretion, but the auction will conclude within the day. The following day there will be another bag posted, and we can play again.
Remember that this is a fund-raiser, and people who are desparate for food and aid are the ones benefitting from all of this. This is not so much about getting a new bag as it is about joining hearts and hands and doing something proactive about injustice and hunger in our world.
**For those of you wondering what time of day the bag will appear, just remember that I get up between 5:00 and 6:00 am. It is during those two glorious hours that I endure no whining, no puking, no endless diaper or drink service, and no endless pawing. That sounds like a really good time to put up a picture of a Darfur bag.
