48 Hours And Counting….

48 hours and counting until these auctions close on the awesome world of my blog, and bidding is well into three figures. I’d love it to go higher as I want to sail through £2000 and as high as I can before I finally wander over to Maggie’s next week.  I cannot tell you how excited I am about making this donation, there’s something truly special about supporting a local charity who make such a difference to those who need it.  DSCN4859

This Olly Murs promo pic is among the items currently garnering bids (at £15 at the moment) and there’s loads of cool signed items there which could go for a bargain amount.  Don’t miss out!

Auctions Going Well, With New Additions!

The last round of auctions (Seriously! It will be!) until the Commonwealth Games auction I am holding at the end of the month for Children with Cancer UK.  The social experiment of auctioning items myself continues and we have some auctions flying right now, with Tom Riley’s Da Vinci’s Demons doodle and a signed League Cup Final teamsheet from the Aberdeen team who won the trophy in March leading the way!

molly1I’ve added a couple more item to the list tonight, including this cool item from Sherlock star Louise Brealey which features lyrics from her favourite song … Stand By Me.  As I typed this post it picked up its opening bid, which is brilliant.  Let’s keep that going :)

There are loads of items without bids just now … grab yourself a bargain!  CLICK HERE TO SEE WHAT YOU COULD BUY :)

Knockout Successes with the XFactor!

glovesA few cool wee additions today between the boxing weigh in for the Ricky Burns fight and the Geordie Massive coming good in style in the North East.   While Ricky doesn’t sign the day before a fight, I managed mini gloves signed by six …  from tomorrow night’s card Wadiarthur1 Camacho, Dejan Zlaticanin, Willie Limond and Curtis Woodhouse, boxing legend Jim Watt and Commonwealth Gold Medal winner Alex Arthur.   Due to a non payment on one of the auctions earlier this month, I can also offer a full size glove signed by Ricky, ricksterone of the last signed with “wbo champ” signed prior to the Crawford fight.  If anyone is interested in any of the gloves, or the ones listed on this page here, then give me a shout and we can talk :)

cowell1Down NorthEast way, the awesome Joshman was out and about and added some stellar names to the Xmas Card pot, including Mr Music himself, Simon Cowell.  As you can see from the pic, he’s signed with a fuller signature than he does normally as well as offering his best wishes for the auction, so this is a really good addition to the listings.  Josh also secured signed cards from Mel B of Spice Girls fame and Heidi Range of the Sugababes.  Muchos thanks Josh!

Busy Busy Busy…

DSCN4831Hey All, been a bit quiet of late I know, but in the background I am working away at some goodies.  I’ve been quite busy with work and whatnot, so I’ve not been over to Maggie’s yet, but in the interim the total is growing, so it’s all good :D

I’m working on an awesome auction I will be holding this summer in support of the superb Children with Cancer UK, which will focus on the Commonwealth Games which take place in my home city of Glasgow.  The auction will include signed kit donated by loads of athletes, as well as signed photos, doodle and more.  My Olympic themed auction raised loads last year, and I am hoping this auction, which will also include items from Olympic and Paralympic stars from London 2012 and the past.   I’d like to thank those athletes and competitors who have already promised to donate items, you’re awesome!  I cannot thank you enough :D

In the meantime, there’s loads of awesome items up for grabs RIGHT HERE which you can snap up to support Maggie’s Centres, including the Michael Di Venuto shirt pictured here.

Bidding is simple, you can email me at twelveby12@yahoo.co.uk or tweet me a bid @13challenge.  I’ve grown a bit weary of ebay lately, and am trying out fundraising my way, using social media and word of mouth to promote it.   So far over £1500 has come in for Maggie’s Centres, and I’m really wanting that to go higher, so please click through to see my auction items and check them all out.

Da Vinci’s Demons & Get Bidding :D

tomriley1The other day I received some awesome items from Bear Grylls, and 2/3 of those items have flown out the door already, including an Xmas Card in June!   There are some awesome items included on the list right now @ MY LIVE AUCTION PAGE so do check them out.  Arriving this morning was this awesome package from Tom Riley, themed to his role as Leonardi Da Vinci in Da Vinci’s Demons.  There’s a slight fold on the top left of the artwork, but wow is it an amazing piece!  Each of the Xmas Cards has a Da Vinci touch as well, snap them up now while you have the chance.
