Great craft auction website
Well we were down to our last €14 euros the other day,sometimes we are down to less than even a euro, but more euros are always around the corner , we have the ability and the option to accrue them, we are lucky,compared to most, we are filled with hope and laden down with opportunity. How would it feel to have no money at all and no hope of ever having any.We (The EEjits )sometimes consider ourselves poor which on a worldwide scale is a total nonesense. We have plenty of food (I am ridiculously overweight and I am ashamed to admit that I need to eat less to improve my health when people across the globe are hungry or starving, moreover I am sure the millions we spend here in the first world on dietry aids ,gimmicks ,fads and weight loss classes would be a brutally incomprehensible and cruel revelation to the mother of a starving child)) i drink alcohol far more often than I should,and even when down to the last few euros we have every luxury of television , phone , mobile phone, heat , light, a solid roof over our heads, a computer our own personal transport.Beyond that we have neighbours and family who are in a position to always help us in an emergency.In short we live like kings.I am sure the people of Darfur would be sickened to hear the likes of me whingeing about being poor,it is an insult to them. With this in mind I am posting a link to a brilliant website/blog created to help the refugees of Darfur.It auctions brilliant often unusual artwork and crafts.Mrs EEjit says the jewellery and bags are lovely and I have already seen some handmade street art photo cards that I really liked and it's fun to bid by just leaving a comment on the blog with the amount you'd like to pay-a sort of charitable ebay only the stuff isn't crap. Please go along and have a look. Dear fellow bloggers you might consider also adding the link to your sidebar-just visit the website copy the code and paste it into your 'Add a gadget' thingy/yoke.All arty people ye may have something to donate? Anyway, as the people themselves put it.......Made4aid is an online charity auction of high quality, handcrafted items donated by crafters and artists throughout the world.The organisation is run by volunteers and is entirely non-profit-making, with all proceeds being sent for relief work in the refugee camps in Darfur.Visit the official Made4Aid website for more information.
