Send Me Your Spare Change

No, really. I have been doing an auction here at FabGrandma since November, to raise money to benefit The Oral Cancer Foundation. In case you haven’t noticed, there is a large “DONATE” button over there at the top of the right side bar. You will also see a meter over there that says I have raised $197.50. That figure is not counting this weeks auction item, which is a copy of my family’s cookbook on CD (unfortunately, it was written before I was gluten free, so the recipes are not GF).

When I started this auction, I had a puny goal of raising $100. The first item up for bids brought that, so I raised the goal to $200.  When I got to $190, I decided to raise the goal to $500. So, what I am asking you to do, is look in your paypal account, and send me the spare change you have in there. So, if you have, say $45.67, send me the 67 cents. Any amount from 1 cent up to 99cents will be appreciated. It is easy to do, just click on that donate button over on the side bar.

I will be sending one big donation to The Oral Cancer Foundation at the end of January, to celebrate FabGrandpa’s 10 years of survival of oral cancer.  We want you to join in this celebration by asking  your doctor or dentist to screen you for oral cancer at your next appointment. Join the party! Find out if a killer is hiding under your nose.

    Did you have some items that never received any bids. I have been remiss about checking this and I am sorry about that.
