Charity Auctions Today: Art for the Children

Charity Auctions Today.png

Charity and Mission work is close to my heart.

I am part of a Mission Team that travels to Guatemala yearly for medical mission work and to serve at a local orphanage. My heart is full of compassion for this type of work and I love to be able to serve those who are so accepting of any love that humanity is willing to show.

Because of this type of missions that I am involved in, I am always looking for opportunities to help organizations and non-profits, whether it is physically or monetary, and this is how I came across Charity Auctions Today, online auctions made easy.

When I first stumbled upon Charity Auctions Today site, I was pleasantly surprised at how this mobile fundraising auction was organized.

CAT features:

CAT is the only charity auction platform that will let you try out every feature they offer before you commit to using. That’s how confident they are in the platforms they offer.

But I think that what I love the most is that you can run your auction through your Facebook Page. Great way for added exposure. Your Facebook fans can do all their bidding from inside Facebook.

And because of the great layout, I was able to locate rather quickly the auction organization that I would like to be involved in by bidding on items up for auction.

The Children of the Arts Gala, which is part of Medical Missions Fundations, has been raising support for Medical Missions Foundation for over 20 years. By browsing and bidding on our unique selection of art, items brought back from our missions, and fun experiences, you will be supporting the critical work of Medical Missions Foundation.

Wow, this definitely hits close to home for me. Medical Mission, children, and art all put into one category was a total no-brainer for supporting this amazing organization.

Thank you, Charity Auctions Today for creating such an easy to navigate auction site that works wonders for non-profit and charities.

 

Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn

The Holidays may be over but winter is in full force. Blizzards in the North followed by bone-chilling temps in the South. And what is with the snow in Florida?

Having small children stuck inside during the winter has its challenges for sure. Finding ways to occupy small minds during the cold days will have you longing for warm summer days, green grass and sprinklers.

There is only so many cartoons to be seen, toys to play with and mess to be made before the children are bored again and mom is pulling her hair out!

That is where my Winter Fun Mini Play and Learn Printable Pack will help with a few more hours of play time for the kiddos and quiet time for the moms

In the pack you will find the following fun activities:

  • Memory Matching Game
  • Counting Practice
  • Word Search
  • Coloring Sheets

What you will need to have on hand:

  • Crayons or Markers
  • Scissors
  • Cardstock and Laminate (if you prefer longer lasting durability)
  • A Printer
  • Paper

I have included a list of my favorite SnowDay Children’s Books that fit perfect with this Winter Theme!

Just a little Victoria Secret Dote(ing) on yourself 

As I have mentioned before, I love the holidays but it also very stressful. 

Just yesterday my husband and I went to Starbucks where we enjoyed the BOGO Holiday drinks, which was a great promotion. We then headed to the bookstore where I picked up a book that I have been dying to read, only to come back outside and my car wouldn’t start! 

Sucks right? 

Long story short, I had to be towed and as I type my car is probably getting hundreds of dollars worth of work done to it and that is not helping my stress level. 

But…….

I went back home and found a great deal which helped with some of the stress I had feeling lately. 

So ladies if you are stressing about the holidays, this deal is for you!!!!

 
Recently I found an app called Dote, the mobile mall. It is all your favorite brands in one place which is amazing. No more shopping from store to store. I can now do it all through one app.

And I found an amazing deal! Victoria Secret has panties on clearance for $3.99. So I added 3 pairs for $11.97!!! 

         
But…… Here is the sweet deal!!!

For downloading the app, I received $5.00 I credit so I was able to get the 3 pairs for $6.97!!!

     
Wow!! 

So if you want to get in on this deal then click here to get the app and receive your $5 off your first purchase!! 

Happy Holidays to you!!! 🎄🎄

Hi Y’all

Hi Y’all,

I’m Miranda, a quirky 30 Something Bookworm, Vegetarian, Coffee Lover, Bibliophile Addict and Animal Obsessor.

Oh okay, I’m 39, and yes I am very quirky. There is definitely not another me out there, which the universe should be thanking God for. (:  I have been a vegetarian for 13 years. I would say vegan but I do eat cheese!  Sorry, I love cheese!!!  And BUTTER!  Butter is my friend, seriously my friend.

I am a Freelance Writer/Editor and Student. Yes, I’m a student even though I am dinosaur age, which takes me to my next love, COFFEE!!  I function only with an IV of coffee running through my veins.

It is true, I am a bibliophile addict; I might need an intervention soon. Or so my husband says!

And well animal obsessor, yikes, I’m not even sure if obsessor is a strong enough word for my love for all creatures. Okay, maybe not snakes, oh and brown recluse spiders.

I am completely obsessed with my Shih Tzu Johnny Cash, AKA Cashy.  He is my lifeline. He completes me!  I told you I am obsessed.

I am a married to my sexy, bearded man with three children. I am a homeschool parent who waited until my kids were in High School and could maintain self-sufficient homeschooling before I decided to chase my dreams.

I live in a very rural area where County Fairs are the highlight of the year; Friday Night Football is an absolute must, and you see more cows as you drive down the road than people.

Who I am kidding, there are cows everywhere and did I mention turkeys and chickens in my backyard?

Join this booknerd as I look at life through my glasses lens….
