Brenda Novak's Auction for Diabetes
Every year, for the month of May, New York Times and USA Today Best selling Author Brenda Novak runs an online auction for diabetes research. The auction takes a full year to plan and pull off, but it’s a labor of love—an effort to help all the people who, like her youngest son, suffer from diabetes. Her very first auction ran in 2005. It started small but has grown every year by leaps and bounds, and has raised over $2 million for research.
The Brenda Novak Online Auction for Diabetes Research is the biggest online event for diabetes research in the world. Each year, with the help of generous donors—which include some of the biggest and brightest stars in publishing, like Debbie Macomber, Nicholas Sparks, Nora Roberts, James Patterson, Diana Gabaldon, Michael Connelly and John Grisham—Brenda offers up over 2400 fabulous items, creating a shopper’s paradise.
But the auction is more than your every day charity gala. It’s a blast to participate in—a real community. Shoppers quickly become donors and donors quickly become shoppers.
Authors, there's still time to donate! To make a donation or for more information, email Brenda's assistant, Anna, at firstname.lastname@example.org.
I've been a donor to this auction for several years, and this year my item this year is a $100 Amazon Gift Card.
The auction starts MAY 1ST and runs for a month. Check it out, and bid on my item! But don't bid on the item I have picked out ... I want that one all to myself. :)
