A secret..... shhhhh......

Sara's Toy Box is hosting a charity auction. The auction will take place on October 1st - as long as everything gets here on time.

The owner of a toy store that we love (and a supporter to our blog) had an emergency appendectomy a few weeks ago. She is a cancer survivor as well as self-employed, and she can't get affordable health insurance. So now she has a $26,000 hospital bill on top of missing her children's first day of school and just some tough life stuff that happened around that time.

So, because we can make a difference for her, Sara's Toy Box is sponsoring an auction to help her out.

The auction will be on HyenaCart. I will post the link once we get the site set up.

What do we have? We have four great gift baskets... one for a boy, one for a girl, one for a baby and one for mom. There will also be individual items and a couple of cool surprises. I'll be posting pictures of everything on the blog and on the auction site in the next few weeks. We have Holztiger, Sarah's Silks, Mary's Soft Dough, handmade dolls and swords and heirloom baby rattles, a balance board, Boom Boom cards, organic stuffed animals, a science kit.... so much. There are even rumors of a Bamboletta Doll (unconfirmed) and a private concert (confirmed)... So, do some Christmas shopping and help out a great woman.
