so. the midwifery program that i am enrolled in is called Ancient Art Midwifery Institute. the founder and director Carla Hartley is amazing. when i went to enroll she knew that financially i was not able to pay for the whole of tuition. she lowered my tuition for me by half. she also gave me a discount off the Trust Birth conference that she is holding in march....she is the most generous person i have ever encountered. she believes in me and midwifery so strongly that i cant help to see what i can do to help. She has helped empower women all over the world with her intense dedication to birth, babies and women.

right now, her husband, Ray, is dying of cancer. she is very in debt because he is unable to work and because she has almost entirely financed this huge conference herself....she has done so because she believes so strongly in the trust birth philosophy and in all her students.

i really want to help. so, i have offered my volunteering time IF i make it to the conference. which is feeling impossible.

but i feel like i can help from afar...... i have this sculpture i made a few years back...a ceramic beautiful pregnant torso sculpture that is just sitting in my living room. i want to find a way to auction it and another smaller sculpture off to see if i can raise funds to give to carla for the conference and/or her personal needs. (see below!)






so, what i am asking you gals for is perhaps crafted donations that i could also auction off. ...can be anything....it would be nice if it was birth/pregnancy/woman/midwifery related...vaginas are good! babies. whatever! i would so appreciate any help!!

also, input about how to go about doing an auction through my midwifery blog would be cool.

i do need to do this with a quickness...i could either have you send the item(s) to me and then i could mail them out to the highest bidder...or you could send me photos of the item, i could auction it and then have you send it directly to the highest bidder....either way.


thank you so much if you are able to help.
i hope i can do this!!! i really want to help her.

This sounds like a great cause!  I'm glad to see midwifery getting in the spotlight!

Would there be any place for more traditional baby items like blankets and booties, etc?  That would help me get through some stash baby yarn if so, and help you out as well.
