Blogs 4 Boobies Blog Bounce


Welcome to the "Blogs 4 Boobies" Blog Bounce

This is day 1 of a 2 day event! Be sure to check Skipping Stones Design tomorrow for more.

I have joined up with Skipping Stones Design (SSD) to help raise money to fight the breast cancer battle. SSD is celebrating the release of 2 new stamp sets. They are also donating $2 for EVERY stamp set sold this week to help with breast cancer research. This is a one-of-a-kind-blog bounce! Every project that is showcased in the "Blogs 4 Boobies" blog bounce is up for auction! All of the money raised through the silent auction, on our blogs, will be donated to the Susan G. Komen foundation.

There are 3 ways that you can help, and join in on the fun!

1. Shopping
For every stamp set purchased during Sept 15 - 23. SSD will donate $2 to the Komen Foundation. Stamping and shopping that you can feel good about!
Click here to check out SSD stamps

2. Bidding
Another way you can help us raise money for the Komen Foundation is to bid on a project along the blog bounce. A $5 or more starting bid is recommended. Your bid includes the project and shipping to your address as well.

Place a Bid for the Card
Step #1
Find the comment section of the blog that shows the "Blogs 4 boobies" card or project that you want to buy. You may only bid on the card/project shown in the specific "blogs 4 boobies" post. Any bids not placed on the correct post will be considered invalid.

Step #2
Once you are in the "blogs 4 boobies" comment section fill in the dollar and cents amount of what you are willing to pay for the card/project. We recommend a starting bid of $5 or more. 100% of the bid proceeds will be donated to the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Step #3
Next to your $ bid please type in your email address. During a silent auction bidders sign their name next to their bid. Typing your email address is the electronic equivalent of signing your bid. Also it will help the blogger contact you if you are the highest bidder.

Step #4
Watch and wait.
Once you have entered your bid/comment sit back and wait. If someone outbids you, then you may bid again. Bidding will continue until September 23 at 8:00 p.m. MT.

After Bidding
Watch and Wait
The "Winner of the Auction" will be the highest bid (that includes an email address) in the comment section of the most recent blogs 4 boobies post at the end of the silent auction. Please note that ALL cards/projects will be re-posted on the 23rd of September. The silent auction will end September 23 at 8:00 p.m. MT

Things to keep in mind
Near the end of the bidding you may not see bids as they come in. Most blog have a comment feature where the blogger must approve comments before they are published. So bid high. You might have the highest bid that is published, but someone might have outbid you in an unpublished comment/bid.

The blogger will declare who has won the silent auction. Skipping Stones Design will send you an invoice for your donation/bid amount. Please pay that invoice as soon as possible, so the designer can get your card/project in the mail to you.

You should have come to me from the wonderful Kim Kesti - http://kimberlykesti.typepad.com/ *Thanks for your kind words!

Please bounce to Angela Thomas - http://sparkleandbling.blogspot.com/
