The “Take the Dare: Show You Care” Auction

ALL AUCTION ITEMS LISTED BELOW ARE CLOSED. But you can still win some free stuff until July 31, 2009.

What your money can do:

Every $3.25 you contribute is one book box for a kid at Tulakes. No more tattered cardboard boxes for these children to store their prized books. Let’s give them something that will last.

Better yet, every $70 gets Tulakes 10% closer to supplying a classroom set of leveled readers for their 2nd-graders!

How this Works:

  1. Click on auction listings below.
  2. Leave a comment on any post with your bid.
  3. Get outbid? Leave another comment and raise your price–bid in $5 increments (minimum).
  4. BID CAREFULLY: Out of fairness to other bidders and the children at Tulakes, you may not withdraw your bid unless it is done immediately after placement due to an error.  NO withdrawals will be allowed the final day of auction.  Please. Bid. Carefully.
  5. When the auction closes on July 8th, 11:59PM EST, winners may pay by Paypal, major credit card, or money order/cashier’s check.
