I didn't win anything. :no: Part of me is glad (cuz I can pay my bills now) and part of me is sad (cuz I SOOO wanted to help with this marvelous idea). BUT, the happy part wins because it means I was out bid on the few items I bid on - and I passed on bidding on others because the bid was already TOO HIGH:hurray: !!
My friend bid on the M&M nutcrackers, and I think bid fairly high - like nearing $50, :golden: and didn't win either - so those went for some fine coinage. :yahoo:
She did however win a basket with Little Mermaid stuff...Litho's and a DVD and some other stuff. I think she was pleased to have helped!!:sun:
And even tho its been said already - those of you working that auction - lugging stuff in and out, monitoring bids, collecting money, etc; and those who donated - you all deserve more praise than could ever be given in a forum like this. The items were all VERY nice, VERY well presented, and most of all ENJOYED by everyone at the meet, and will be VERY ENJOYED by the lucky folks who get to go see the world. I applaud your efforts more than you could know.
Next year, I will be donating, and budgeting better so I can buy the coolest stuff (like that EE poster, or the HM light-up poster thingy). AND, if you'll have me - helping out with manual labor as well.:wow:
