    Cutest Moments - Childrens Charity Auction
    I was lucky enough to come third in Genos' recent "The Cutest Moments" competition:

    http://forum.abestweb.com/showthread.php?t=97117

    As I live in the UK however the prize generously donated by Gourmet Station is not useable by me, however much I would love to use it .

    So I've decided to auction it here to the highest bidder by this time next week - midnight on Monday 19th November. The money raised by the auction will go to this charity that I support:

    http://www.worldvision.org/

    I sponsor a fatherless 8 year old boy called Morisi in Tanzania whose mother has to raise him and his younger brother on her own in conditions of poverty. Sponsorship goes not just to the child, but to help the whole village, it helps him go to school, but also helps the village in getting a health visitor and a clean water supply.

    The prize is here - 5th one down on the page, a 3-course dinner for 2 each month for 3 months:

    http://www.gourmetstation.com/cgi-bi...t/cat_dotm.htm

    The retail price is $269, I'd like to start the auction off at $100. Upon winning the auction you will get sent the codes by Donna at Gourmet Station and er... I'll work out some way of payment, not sure how yet!

    Mods - please feel free to assign this post to a more suitable position if this isn't the right place for it.
