Mind-blowing updates and exclusive deals from the best penny auctions.
This is Josh, founder of the Penny Auction List. I want to make you aware of an upcoming charity auction that Bidfire will be hosting. But before I go any further, I want to offer some personal context.
Back in the late 90s, I started listening to a relatively obscure band called Switchfoot. Many of their albums complemented my college experience and offered some fun, thought-provoking listening along the way. In 2003, Switchfoot released their album “The Beautiful Letdown” which launched them to multi-platinum success. Even in the midst of great success, Switchfoot has continued to focus on doing their part in this big world. The heart of the band is evident in their lyrics, and in their charity efforts.
So now back to the auction part…
Several days ago I received an email from Switchfoot about a charity auction they would be running with Bidfire. Here’s how the auction is going to work:
- The auction will take place on May 28, 2100. To participate, users must reserve a seat.
- The winner of the auction will be flown to California to record a song with Switchfoot (to be released on iTunes).
- The winner will also be Switchfoot’s special guest at the San Diego County Fair (June 24, 2010) and the Bro-Am fundraiser on (June 26, 2010).
But here’s what makes this auction so special:
- All proceeds from the auction will be donated to charity Stand Up for Kids, a nonprofit organization that helps homeless youth.
I have great respect for Switchfoot, and I think this is an excellent opportunity for many of you to be involved in something meaningful.
