Beginning on November 20, 2014, we at Emmanuel House International will be holding our online auction “Get Into Giving Tuesday with EHI” as part of our 2014 Giving Tuesday (Dec 2) Campaign to raise much needed funds to provide critical resources and support for our Moms and Moms-to-Be in need, their Babies, and their Families. The more items we have in the auction and the more people we have participating, the more money we can raise, and so we are asking for your help.
For the last few months, we have been gathering a “Christmas Wish List” from each Mom and Mom-to-Be for their families. These wishes often include a warm snowsuit or winter jacket; boots, shoes, or sneakers; winter clothing; a holiday outfit; or pajamas, underwear, and socks. For them, these will be the only new clothes they will receive during the holiday season and perhaps for the year. Of course, each mom additionally asks for a special toy for each of her children; similarly this will probably be the only new toy they will receive during the holiday season. As you know, the holiday season also brings high heating bills, colds and coughs, and coats and boots, in addition to the many other ongoing needs. These can be crushing financial blows to any Mom or Mom-to-Be in crisis.
To make all this possible, we need YOUR HELP by DONATING, BIDDING, and SHARING EHI’s online auction “Get Into Giving Tuesday with EHI”! We’re asking you to participate in one or more of the following ways…
We need items to add to our auction catalog. If you have unique merchandise, homemade objects, forgotten family treasures, collectibles, business or personal services, or access to unique events, we would greatly appreciate your contribution. Click here to Donate.
And of course, we also accept secure online monetary donations.
In order to truly make our online auction a success, we need your help to spread the word.
