    Default Fund raiser for our beloved Orchid Talk!

    Call for artist, donations of any sort that would interest an orchid lover!!

    Knowing what it takes to provide and maintain a service like Orchid Talk I am proposing we pitch in and raise some money! None of us can do it alone, however I have noticed we have a wealth of talents here, I am looking for others willing to donate a piece of art work to be auctioned here with the funds going to Orchid talk. You do not have to be a professional artist or craft person, but the works shown here have been so well received, lets put them to work to support our forum! And on top of it as the winning bidder you would get a bit of art from another member, making us an even closer group. This would not have to be strictly art, it could be a book, or even a plant itself, I am totally open just looking to raise some needed funds for a place dear to all of us!

    PM me with any ideas you have or donations you are wanting to make, I will collect the info till June 1 2011, then we will launch our fund raiser auction! Winning bidders and the individual making the donation can the arrange shipping, and all funds can go here!


    Hope your having a great day!
    Aja

    Thank you Kathi!!!

    Just FYI, my 12 year old has a spinal fracture and is going to surgery in the morning. I will be away for a while but if you have a donation you are interested in making just go ahead and pm me, I will reply as I am able, but forgive me if there is a lag.

    Thanks
    Aja
