What are your thoughts on a possible Charitable Auction?

Posted: October 21, 2012 in Discussion Post

This morning while I was trying to figure out what to do with the excess books I have on my bookcases and through out my house I had a small “brain child.”  I just realized that we are heading into the season of giving and then I started thinking about how I could give.  Then that thought turned into wouldn’t it be cool if I (if anyone else likes the idea and wants to team up I’m game) could come up with an event that Book Bloggers could participate in? The it came down to what hasn’t been done (at least as far as I know anyway) in the book blogging community?  There are TONS of Giveaway Hops and Giveaways so those kind of got pushed to the side.  Then the more I started thinking about it the more I thought that it could still be a Giveaway but in addition to a cool prize you get to help someone else out too. Like a charitable auction maybe?  An unconventional giveaway 🙂  Bid on a prize and the winner’s winning bid goes to their choice of charity or library?!

Then that turned into IF I were to do something like this how exactly would it work?  Would it be strictly bookish related things or could the items be anything?  How would I “advertise” the event (since I’m starting over and I’m a small fish in a great big pond)?  Would anyone out there even want to donate items?  Is it even a good idea to being with?  And that’s just the tip of the iceberg.  I’ll spare you the full length novel diatribe of questions I came up with.

So what are your thoughts bloggers?  Is this something that you would participate in?  Is this something you would consider donating too?  Let me hear it peeps! 🙂

Have a great day!
