Online Auction for Diabetes Research

Help Find a Cure

Since I’ve been blog-challenged of late, I thought I’d piggyback off my friend Lynn Reynolds’ blog today.

Lynn is showcasing author Brenda Novak’s 5th annual online auction to raise money for diabetes research, which runs throughout the month of May. All proceeds from this year’s auction will be donated to The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami.

Brenda, whose son suffers from juvenile diabetes, has raised over $500,000 for diabetes research.

Items to be auctioned range from a personalized tour of Edgar Allen Poe’s house, celebrity autographed items, laptops, gift baskets, a high-definition TV, lunch with famous writers, vacation getaways, even a day of bridge with a famous player.

Lynn has put together a wonderful gift basket of spa items, containing bath salts, soaps, moisturizer, bath gel, a pink iPOD shuffle, and an iTunes gift card, among other items.
And if you've been drooling over the new Amazon Kindle, look no further. A group of writers from The Wild Rose Press are offering a Kindle and a $70 gift certificate. Bidding will continue throughout the month, so check out all the fabulous items and bid. There's something for everyone.

Hi,

7.9% of the United States population is suffering from a form of Diabetes. That is over 23 million people! Now, more than ever, it is important for organizations such as yourself. We here, at Disease.com (a site dedicated towards disease and their treatments), believe in the work you do and would like to coincide for the fight against diabetes. If you could, please list us as a resource or host our social book mark button, it would be much appreciated. Separately, we can make advancements, but together we can find a cure.
If you need more information please email me back with the subject line as your URL.

Thank You,
