    A VERY SPECIAL SET OF AUCTIONS AWAY

    Tonights auctions are a little different. Just launched are 174 auctions, all at $9.99 with no reserve. These auctions end on December 15th. What I am doing is donating 10% of the hammer price for all the auctions that end that day to the Ronald McDonald House charities. This donation is in part of the StyleForum initiative where they are running auctions to raise funds for the same cause. Last year, we raised almost $12,000 for the RMHC charities and I hope that we exceed it this year.

    You can read more about what RMHC does here, and make your own contributions as well through their site.

    We spend all year purchasing these beautiful and luxury items for ourselves, the least we can do is take the cost of one pocket square, a pair of shoes, or a new tie and help support a family that needs it this season.

    So, while there is no top ten tonight as they are all winners, here are 9 suggested items that you should put a bid towards as they are awesome and will put a smile on a kids face.

    1. Alden unlined suede shoes

    2. RLPL handkerchief

    3. Mark McNairy contrast saddles

    4. Orange Hermes tie

    5. Loro Piana cashmere blend sweater

    6. NWT Drakes shantung tie

    7. Ralph Lauren tartan suspenders

    8. Barbour waxed cotton jacket

    9. NWT Aran knit sweater


    Please, tell your friends, place a bid for yourself or for a gift for someone you know, or donate directly and help a sick kid this season.

    Speaking of which, in addition to this charity donation I am making, there is another one I am doing too. Another StyleForum member and fellow thrifter recently had a daughter, Emily. Emily was born with a heart condition and is currently on a waiting list for a heart transplant. He turns to the camaraderie of the boards on StyleForum for a small escape of being in the hospital all day.

    What I am doing is matching 20% of this other ebay sellers sales from 12/1 - 12/25 and donating it to the hospital that Emily is staying in. A fellow forumite, CapnWes is matching my 20% donation as well.

    NOW GO BID!

    Spoo, you are a man amongst men.

    This year my wife and I decided to forgo the normal over spending that occurs during the season and we adopted a mother and her teen son who are stuck in a shelter after leaving a abusive relationship. At first when we called to ask about the process we were looking for a mom with a small child as this is where the normal heart strings are tugged but the service asked if we would mind considering a teen as they are generally overlooked which broke our hearts more so. I don't wish to derail the thread but just a thought to other members who might not find a item on the two sales that works for you.

    I'm sure that something will work for all of us but thanks again Spoo and CapnWes for their amazing spirit, I shall be placing bids soon.

    That is very commendable man, thank you for doing that... what do you mean by "adopt" though - they actually move in with you?

    Sparrow got it, they have asked for help just getting started again but it was shocking to see the list of items that was requested such as a broom or underwear. The boy(14yrs) had asked for boots and gloves plus a x-box game so I guess at least he managed to escape with something, sigh.

    Thanks again everyone who steps up for the season.

    ^tad too small. At that price, vanity sizing may succumb to a purchase.
