The Not-So-Silent, Silent Auction Benefiting the Boobies

The Silent Auction is now over. Together we have raised $12,056.54 to fight breast cancer.

Winners are announced on the respective auction post.

A great big “Thank You” to everyone who participated by donating, bidding and promoting the auction to make it so successful!

As previously mentioned, Team Affiliate Marketers Give Back needs some help getting a few of its team mates over their fundraising minimum so that they can walk with us next month, during the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles.

We put out a call for donations so that we may run our Not-So-Silent, Silent Auction and we received some great items donated by fantastic individuals and companies. You’ll find the list of items below.

The auction will run until 11:59pm EST on Friday, August 28th. To bid on the item, simply enter your name and amount you would like to bid. The winner will be the highest bid entered before the auction deadline. (Please make sure that you use your correct email address when prompted, so that we may contact you if you are the winner).

    Get Ready for 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!

    In today’s mail I received my Champion Fundraiser Hat for being one of the Top 10 fund raisers for the upcoming Avon Walk for Breast Cancer in Los Angeles next month.

    Additionally, 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.

    Seattle 3 day my first walk 1st day summary

    Today was my very first ever experience at a breast cancer walk and I have to say it was absolutely amazing. The amount of joy and happiness and love throughout the entire day made the blisters so worth it! I’ve shared a little insight into my experience here…

    I’m not a morning person, but the day started out with so much pure joy, we couldn’t help to be delighted to be awake and surrounded by so many pink covered people. We stopped every few miles for snacks or potty breaks or toe bandaids. We walked and talked with total strangers. Shared many stories with eachother and all in all had a great beginning to this weekend’s journey.

    I’m glad I’m here.
