The Virtual Gift Basket

So, if you follow me on Twitter, or Facebook, you may know about my idea for my big fundraiser. If not, I’m going to tell you now.

I’m putting together a “virtual” gift basket. I’m asking all of my favorite online vendors to donate a gift card so we can make a gift basket to auction off for the Epilepsy Foundation. I’ve asked Thinkgeek,, Japanistic, Threadless, Netflix, ModCloth and actually loads more (It was a major project last night) to donate a gift certificate. That’s it. That’s all they have to do. Once they do that, I’ll put them together make a “gift basket” out of them and then auction them off.

No one has to put up with whatever I manage to get donated item wise (cause let’s be honest… sometimes you get ugly cats out of the deal.. Long story), and you can shop at some of the less well known online vendors (not to mention some of my favorite ones!)

Delight has pledged $50. They are one of my FAVORITE online businesses and they have something for nearly everyone.

Emily’s Edibles just donated 1 box of their yummy goodness with NO SHIPPING to the winner of the auction!!

Kroger just donated a $50 gift card! Kroger has locations (and different chains) around the country!

JapanisticDiscount + free shipping!

ModCloth $25 gift certificate!

Thinkgeek $150 gift certificate!!

So let’s see where we go from there.  I’ll update this blog often with any gift cards we get from different businesses. So you can see the status of the basket here! If you think of any business to add, please let me know. If you know someone who works there and I can get to them directly? Let me know that as well. Who needs help in this project?? Yeah… This girl.
