    Benefit Auction Seeking Fine Arts and Crafts Submissions

    I am organizing a fine arts and crafts auction to benefit Operation First Response. This is a 501(c)3 (ie. registered non-profit). The mission is to provide supportive services to family members of injured soldiers from Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation Enduring Freedom.

    The agency puts together backpacks that are given to injured soldiers which include some clothes (because soldier''s uniforms are often cut off when they sustain an injury) and toiletries. In addition, they also fly families to see their injured soldier after they are returned to the US, or provide car services and financial assistance for hotels so families can spend time with their loved one.

    If you are interested in donating a piece of fine art or a craft please email me (ndilliplane AT gmail DOT com). Just an FYI: Things such as culinary arts, web design and graphic design are also considered fine arts. You can donate a website, the design of a company brochure or certificate for two dozen pieces of fine chocolate if these are your mediums.

    This is an amazing organization and the chapter here in PA is experiencing serious financial strains due to the large number of injured troop being cared for at Walter Reed Army Medical Center. (The volunteers have even paid for fights with their own credit cards).

    I am collecting donations over the next 60 days and plan to organize and ONLINE auction. You donations are tax deductible and I can arrange for you to receive the appropriate tax info if you request.

    Also, please feel free to repost this any and everywhere.....Email it to friends, mention it while on a call to another crafter, organize your knitting group, post it on your blog, copy and paste it in all your listservs, craft a beautiful handmade card and send it to everyone in your black book....(you get the point). I''d be happy to answer any and all questions.

    Thank you in advance for your support and interest.
