I wonder if some of you guys might be able to help me. This year I’m running The Year of Readers (http://yearofreaders.blogspot.com), a year long, online sponsored read-a-thon where readers collect money for various literacy charities. Not only is each participant working to raise money for a worthy cause, but each book an official participant reads earns Eco-Libris (an organization that plants trees) a penny from my own pocket.

We’re doing well with some participants collecting as much as $200 in sponsorship and the total of books just keeps growing. However a few of our readers have had trouble getting sponsors and are currently sponsoring themselves. In order to raise as much money as possible for charity I’d like to hold some silent auctions via Justgiving to boost some of our readers sponsorship totals.

I’ll personally be donating a signed copy of Joe Hill’s ‘Heart Shaped Box’ and a signed copy of Robin Jarvis’ ‘The Raven’s Knot’ but we need some more fantastic items, which is where I hope some of you might be able to help.

It would be wonderful if some of you would consider donating some cool handcrafted items that can be auctioned off to raise funds for charity. All sorts of items would be great: jewellery, journals, bags, pottery etc but they must be ok to go through the post. We really hope to raise lots of money for charities helping kids and adults learn to read.

You can see the fundraising pages of the people whose totals I’m trying to increase here: http://bookgazing.blogspot.com/2009/06/yera-of-readers-fundraising-...
I hope to be able to hold one auction for each of these readers.

I would be so grateful if you were able to help out. The auction will run sometime in August and you can contact me here by email at bakerjodie at googlemail dot com if you're interested in helping out. Thanks so much for reading.
