In Japan, For Japan, WDW Radio Charity Auction #5 – WDW Radio Disney Book Club Gift Pack–6 Books

On March 11, 2011, the nation of Japan was struck by a double natural disaster of an earthquake and a tsunami, leading to an unimaginable human and emotional toll. The people of Japan have been in the thoughts and minds of the world, and as members of a close-knit Disney community, we wanted to help.

June 11 will be exactly 3 months to the day of the earthquake and tsunami in Japan. We have always felt that the meets are not just about meeting others, but helping others as well. To date, we have raised more than $98,000.00 through our Dream Team Project for the Make-A-Wish Foundation of America. But now, others need our help in a tragedy that is still ongoing. It’s not near Walt Disney World but on the other side of world in Japan. So June’s meet will be “In Japan FOR Japan”, as we hold it at the Japan pavilion in World Showcase. The “In Japan-For Japan” Meet of the Month will kick off a month’s worth of on-line charitable auctions to benefit the people of Japan.

Here’s what we will be doing: from June 11-July 10, we will host a series of 10 auctions, each of which will last 3 days, and be its own blog post. New auctions for Disney-related gifts and experiences will be added on June 14, June 17, June 20, June 23, June 26, June 29, July 2, July 5, and July 8. If you are interested in bidding on the item or experience, post a comment in the blog, which includes your bid price. The highest bid price as of 10 PM EDT on the third day of the auction will win that auction. ALL monies raised through each of the ten auction items will be donated to the American Red Cross’ efforts to aid the people of Japan. On July 11, the four month anniversary of the twin disaster, we will announce our charitable total. Please see details regarding bidding on our auction below.

Our goal, through these ten charitable auctions, is to raise $2000.00. While money will never erase the emotional scars of this event, hopefully our efforts will ease some of the day-to-day financial hurdles and enable the emotional healing to begin.

You don’t need to bid on an auction item to participate in this humanitarian relief effort. You can make a donation to support the American Red Cross relief efforts by making a secure donation through this our secure link on FirstGiving.com

If you have any questions about the specifics of a gift item or the auction itself, you can drop a note to Christy at Christy@WDWRadio.com

Thank you in advance for all your efforts to help us to make a difference!
