    Come on guys !! This is for a great cause and we're not even at fair market value for these. Not to mention that the bag is SOLD OUT on the site right now so this is the only way to get it ! :)

    I'm going to chime in here about how great this charity is.

    My family is dealing with the illness of our child at this time; thankfully we live in the same city as the children's hospital, but there are many families that we meet that not so lucky. Ronald McDonald house has been amazing for them, providing them with food and lodging. Many parents have to take time off from work to be with the sick child, leaving them without a family income; having to pay for hotel and restaurants (especially for extended stays) in addition to their medical costs, would quickly sink the family.

    On behalf of the families that we meet that have to make use of this charity, we thank you for your generosity.

    **boom**

    (The sound of mimo's lightweight effort at waiting until Wednesday to offer a tiny bit more, being blown comprehensively to shit. There are believed to be several other casualties)

    Good man!

    There are some generous individuals here on StyleForum.

    Now the question my wife the CPA would ask if she were bidding: Can we get a receipt for a tax deduction for the portion of the winning bid that is above the retail price of the item(s)?
