When I realized how close we were to Christmas, I started racking my brain trying to decide what we should do as a gift from us and the fans. I realized that if we spent money on him, he’d probably prefer a donation made to a charity than an actual gift. I knew the LA Mission was a very important charity to him, very close to his heart. But I also talked to his mom about which one and she agreed, the LA Mission would be the best charity.
Here’s how it’s going to work. We’ll take both cash donations and allow bidding on auction items that will be an auction
on a LiveJournal Community Angels for Aldis. on this website! Since I know Christmas is a tough time for people to be giving away money, I’m going to collect money through January 10th. On Christmas, I’ll let Aldis know what we’re doing and how much money we’ve collected so far, including the estimated amount from the auctions.
All auctions will end on December 24. But the money can be paid through January 10th.
Right now however, I need everyone to let me know what if anything they’re willing to donate time or a craft of some kind to be auctioned off. It can be a fan creation: fan video, a fan fiction, beta’ing, graphics or a material item (handmade crafts, collectible items, etc). Ms. Hodge has been kind enough to send me some signed stuff to auction as well as helping me work on the BIG auction item. 🙂 That’s a secret for now but it’s going to be something ya’ll will want!
Questions? Post to this thread or email to firstname.lastname@example.org. See the next post to offer up an item or service to be auctioned off. I’ll take offers until December 7th at midnight EST. I’ll post the various auctions on December 8th before midnight EST.
ABOUT THE LA MISSION:
The Los Angeles Mission exists to provide help, hope, and opportunity to men, women and children in need.
Core Values – Distinctives of the Los Angeles Mission
- We believe that all services provided to those in need should be done so in love, offering hope, mercy and compassion.
- We believe that personal spiritual transformation occurs from strong Christian discipleship, equipping and training.
- We believe that addictions can be overcome through prayer, medical treatment and deep abiding healthy relationships.
- We believe that homelessness is a temporary condition that, when desired, can be overcome with personal healing, educational assistance, housing and employment.
The Los Angeles Mission strives to be a world leader among missions that provides for the poor, restores the addicted, and eliminates homelessness.
We see each individual as a spiritual person of worth and dignity and worthy of assistance in their journey. Our vision it to see individuals and families set free from addictions and homelessness, transformed by God to become physically and spiritually healthy; educationally equipped to participate in society and sustain housing; and encouraged to relationships of love and service to others.
We seek to help those who have been abused and neglected to find a better life. We seek to help those that have become addicted to understand their addictions, to expect physical healing and to live in ways that are healthy to soul, mind and body.
PLEASE US AND HELP SPREAD THE WORD! WE NEED ALL THE HELP WE CAN GET FOR A GOOD CAUSE!
