A fellow blogger Rhea @ Mommy23Monkeys.com has a sweet infant cousin Penelope, who was recently diagnosed with Stage 4 Neuroblastoma. Just 11 months old, she has spent the last 3 weeks in Rady Children’s Hospital in San Diego. She has a private insurance policy that will only cover 60% of her very expensive treatments.
Today, Friday 3/19, there is an online auction where ALL proceeds will go to Penny and her family! There are some amazing companies involved including ERGObaby, Scandanavian Child, Legoland, Build-a-Bear and SO many more companies that have provided some amazing products that will be up for grabs!
Please visit Pennies4Penny.com beginning Friday morning (6am PST) to have your chance to bid and win some amazing products. The outpouring of love and support for this little girl has just been amazing. In fact over 30 companies and individuals have donated over 70 items to auction.!
For future reference, these are the auction terms (they will also be posted on each individual auction item):
