Help for Joplin Auction

Welcome to the Help for Joplin Auction!

*This post will be pinned as the top post throughout the auction, please scroll down to see and bid on items.

This spring has been one of devastating storms and destruction.

The most recent tornado has stuck very close to our Bigger Picture Blogs family. Joplin, MO was hit Sunday night with a massive tornado that destroyed much of the town and left many people without homes.

One of our writers Sarah lives in the town of Joplin. While her family did not lose their home, close family members and friends have. She has lost her church, her daughter’s school and the community hospital. The town has been completely split in two by the vast path of the tornado.

We have come together to do what this community does best — support and comfort our own.

Every hour (8 a.m. -6 p.m.)  Wednesday, Thursday and a few on Friday  another generously donated item will go up right here on the blog. Bidding on each item will start at $10 and increase by increments of $1.

So if you see an item you want, leave a comment on that item stating how much you are willing to donate — your bid. All bids begin at $10; the he first commenter’s bid for each item starts at a minimum of $10, but you have the option to begin with a higher bid.

After the initial first bid of $10 or more, each must be at least $1 more than the previous comment.

Please be as generous as you can; after all, we are raising money to feed and house the people of Joplin.

The auction will remain open for FOUR days Wednesday, May 25- Thursday, May 26,  Friday, May 27 and Saturday, May 28.

All posts will close to comments at 9 a.m. on Saturday, May 28. {THIS IS AN EXTENSION!}

Winners will be notified by email and will have 24 hours to make their payment before we move on to the next highest bidder.

Payments will be made as a direct donation to The Salvation Army  listing the specific use as JOPLIN RELIEF. Your emailed receipt from The Salvation Army is your claim ticket to your prize. All receipts should be emailed to BPB4Joplin (at) gmail (dot) com within the 24 hour time frame to  claim your prize.
