Her Bad Auction

In honour of Her Bad Mother and her nephew Tanner, the blogging community is hosting an online auction to raise money for Muscular Dystrophy Canada (read more about Tanner’s story here).

Check out all of the fabulous items up for grabs here:
Her Bad Auction

You can also help by encouraging your children write a letter to Tanner. Find the details on the auction site.

Bidding begins Wednesday, December 13 continuing through Sunday, December 17. It is a raffle-style event: buy tickets for the items you're interested in. The more tickets you buy, the better chance of winning! Winners will be announced Monday, December 18.

Here is a sample item, a gorgeous handcrafted flannelette quilt, generously donated by Quita Alfred of Inqb8 quilt:



InQb8 quilt’s one of a kind, hand crafted quilts and blankets are perfect for the snuggling season. Vibrant colours, cosy textures and pre-shrunk durability make them a must have for hibernation, or for rugging up and facing the elements. Proprietor Quita Alfred makes each quilt herself, inserting a message of love and encouragement between the layers of new and vintage fabrics. The special message and serial number of each quilt is indicated on the hang tag. “Loved, Safe, Strong”, “Irreplaceable Treasure” and “Beloved” are examples of some of the heartwarming sentiments in which you can wrap your little one (or yourself!)

There are many more wonderful items, so go. It’s for a great cause.
