I just love the colors in this tote and wish I’d gotten myself one while I was buying. If this offering doesn’t grab you, there are hundreds of others to choose from: small earring sets to luxury vacation packages. Did I mention it’s for a worthy cause?
Please check it out and help raise money to support Diabetes Research. Even the small purchases add up. If you don’t wish to bid on items, Brenda provides a convenient cash donation option in various increments to suit all budgets.
Every donation is appreciated.
