Not sure which category this should be in.

Am looking for donations for an online auction which all the proceeds will be going to a group of ten people traveling to South Africa next April. Deadline is this Friday for items, please email me at trendyphotos@hotmail.com if you are interested in donating something. Thanks very much :)

The trip in total costs $40,000 for all of us to go so we are fundraising as much as we can. We will be helping out in the nursery school, and school while we are there. Any amount we collect from any fundraiser helps us out.

What kind of items are you looking to auction off? I may be able to donate a gift certificate from the travel agency but Im not sure I could have it to you before Friday... its kind of a tight deadline.

Do you guys need help booking anything? We've got the best insurance rates for travellers under 50 and may be able to arrange some good flights for you. Let me know.

Anything really.

Right now I have photos, photo session, knitted hats to be added, a photography prop, a Christmas item, tupperware to be added, a purse, a gc for running. Even if I just had a logo to add in with a description and your website or address so people know who it is from. The auction will be a week long on my fanpage (I can message you that if you want as I am not a advertiser anymore so I can't post it)
We may, I can pass your information on to the person that is organizing the trip. We are all from Windsor and the same church all over the age of 18.
Thanks so much,
Victoria :)

You can contact Debbie Lamkie at the casino- 258-7878, then ask for her extension. She handles donations...in fact I have a case of items she needs to make up some gift packs.

I know that we are also keeping all used/unused products from the hotel rooms and donating them in honour of Earth Day- so there is always a possibility of getting hotel toiletries from there as there is sooo much waste.

I'll accept those too, I have someone else that is donating a hat or two.

Thanks so much, I will definitely give her a call. We are also collecting tolietries to bring to Africa so we would love to have the used/unused ones if there are any extras.
