    Online charity auction for an infant with cancer

    Hey, guys. Sorry to bother you, but you guys pull together like nothing I’ve ever seen, so I wanted to put this out there and see if anyone might have any ideas or would be willing to participate.

    A good friend of mine in Seattle has a 10-month-old son, Charlie. He was born with a very rare form of leukemia, but had genetic mutations that meant he is the only child in the world with his form of this cancer. He also has hydrocephaly, and has now been diagnosed with lung disease. Here’s a news video about him:

    N. Seattle infant battling extremely rare form of leukemia | Local & Regional | Seattle News, Weather, Sports, Breaking News | KOMO News

    The past ten months have been an incredible ordeal for them. Here’s his Facebook page, which his mother, Jessica keeps updated: https://www.facebook.com/prayersforcharliecole

    A group of friends of Jessica are getting together to try and get an online auction organized as a fundraiser. We’re contacting both Seattle-based and nationwide companies looking for donations to auction – a friend of mine here in Ames donated guitar/bass lessons or studio time, for example. We also have some art by Iowa-born or –based artists, lots of jewelry and such. There are some sports items, and one of our contacts is asking her friends on the Seahawks for signed memorabilia.

    We’re doing the auction on Facebook on September 5 and 6. Right now we’re looking for anything anyone may be able to donate, but we also want people to like the page and, if they so desire, bid! Here’s the page, if you’re interested:

    https://www.facebook.com/prayersforcharliecoleauction

    If by any chance you’d feel comfortable donating, you can message us on that Facebook page (I’ll get it), or you can PM me here for anonymity. We’re including information about the donating business to get them credit, and we’re going to try to promote this through local media in Seattle and, if it’s warranted, here in Iowa. But even if you can’t, please like the page or share it with friends/family!

    Thanks, guys – sorry to put a damper on the board, this little boy is just very sick.

    And please feel free to bump this, too. Or send it to your moms, sisters, wives, girlfriends - the jewelry and hair stuff might appeal to them, and women like shopping a lot more than men.

    Sorry to bump this again, guys. The athletic department just donated two tickets for the Kansas game on 11/23/13 - if you want two tickets at a bargain, like the page and bid on them after the auction starts on 9/5!

    We'll also have some other gift certificates to Ames establishments, etc. :)
