Once again we cannot thank you enough for your support of Brenda Novak's Online Auction for Diabetes Research. With $1.3 million already raised, we're aiming to break all previous records and make 2012 the best year yet and bring us that much closer to a cure.
If you haven't yet had a chance to donate to this year's event, it's not too late! We're always on the lookout for gift baskets, e-readers loaded with books, sets of autographed books, critiques, gift cards, special services...the sky is the limit! The auction will be advertised in Writer's Digest, Publisher's Weekly, RT Book Review Magazine, The Sacramento Bee (local newspaper), The Romance Writers Report, the May 6th issue of Woman's World and many other print and online venues. Get your books and web site in front of over 20,000 unique visitors. Last year we had 500,000 page hits!
How do you donate? Simply email Anna at firstname.lastname@example.org and she'll get you taken care of.
For those who have already been in touch, we have banners and links to the auction available at www.brendanovakforthecure.org. Simply click on "auction downloads" on the left menu bar and you'll find a selection to choose from. If you'd like the link to your specific item and can't find it by using the search box at the top of the auction home page, just ask Anna--she'll send it to you in no time.
Want to keep up with all auction related news? Make sure you register for the event. There's a link right on the front page of Brenda's website (www.brendanovak.com).
We'd also appreciate any postings on Facebook or Twitter letting people know about the wonderful items and opportunities up for bid beginning May 1st.
We'll be posting on Facebook and Twitter, too, as the weeks progress, highlighting various donations. You can find us at: https://www.facebook.com/BrendaNovakDiabetesAuction and @bnovakauction respectively. We'd love for you to join our Twitter Street Team and RT any auction related postings.
Finally, we are offering a beautiful charm bracelet designed by a friend of Brenda's specifically to raise money for research. This sterling silver bracelet (measuring 7", larger sizes available upon request) are only $89. All profits go to diabetes research. Visit www.brendanovakforthecure.org to order your bracelet today!
Hope to have you on board for 2012. Here's to making a difference.
