RAPS for Charity – the DE-BRIEF

Guylty Pleasure

It has taken me a day to come down from the high that I felt yesterday in the final hours of and post-event. The RAPS for charity auctions, if I may say so myself, were a fantastic success. So much so that I found it impossible to put my gratitude, awe and general elation into words. You all have reinforced my continued happiness at being part of this community. The upshot is clear:

Armitage fan

All joking aside, I know that you would like to hear the tally of the project. Let me just precede that by saying that I had not in my wildest dreams thought that we would raise so much money together. And not even in my sleepless hours pre-event last Saturday night when I was wondering whether I’d be able to convince three people to pay 35 US$ each in order to reach my target of a three-figure…

Hellooo??? Anyone in there????

Oh HI!!!  Yes, we’re definitely still here, but spring sprang all over Jazzbaby and I….

dusting off gif

I’ve just been dusting things off a bit to get ready to give SpReAd the Love a little jumpstart, since lots of things have been happening on the kindness front.  A little further housekeeping is in order though, before we get to some new things…

book donationThe Children’s Book Challenge exceeded the fifty books to max out our anonymous donor’s matching cash donation pledge.  The funds were donated to Richard Armitage’s Just Giving page for Young Minds all the way back in March.  It is such a great experience to hear so many people talk about books that touched them and their desire to share that with a child.  Maybe I should build a “virtual library” page here with links to all our SpReAd the Love Children’s Book Challenge titles…future projects  🙂

Now, back to current events on the kindness front:

Over at Ancient Armitage, I am happy to report that I can still rely on the kindness of strangers to avert massive mortification

The recent devastating earthquakes in Nepal have moved Guylty to lend her creative genius to charitable works…check out the plans for a relief fund raising RAPS auction

And last but not least, a promised kindness from the mutual OOA on the doodle front…

doodle tweet snip

With 2 days and 21 hours left, the “diddly doodle” in question should raise a nice amount for Neurofibromatosis Network.  As of this “press time”, the leading bid is $2125.  Click here if you’re ready to bid.

Tons of great stuff going on…watch this space in the next few weeks for a carnassial challenge to mark Richard Armitage’s debut on NBC’s Hannibal.  

As always, we are delighted to hear of SpReAding the Love with reports of any kindness given or received…click over to the ABOUT page and drop us a line!
