NOTE: I will be doing LIVE commentary ALL day on TWITTER! Follow me!

Why am I doing this?

I decided to run my first race and raise money for charity when my family lost a dear family friend, Chris, to cancer. Chris was just 26 years old when he passed away. No one should have to lose their life at such a young age. It is my hope that one day we will find a cure for cancer and finally put an end to the thousands of lives that are tragically lost each year.

Every dollar that is donated is a step toward finding a cure and I want to help in any way possible! I am running this race in Chris’s honour as well as everyone who has been touched by cancer in some way.

I am also battling back from a severe groin injury that put me out of my training for 2 full months this past winter. It has been a somewhat rocky road, but I am even more motivated to run the 10K this weekend!

I would like to thank everyone for their support!!! I couldn’t have done this without your generous and thoughtful donations!

How does it work?

  • The charity auction will function as a silent auction meaning that you have to email me (ohsheglows@gmail.com) with your bid. I will not accept any comments left below- you must email me your bid!
  • All bids start at $20 Canadian Funds (bonus for the US residents!). This is to ensure that at minimum, the volunteer’s shipment costs are donated. I would hate for someone to spend $25 on shipping only to have the item sell for $10!
  • The auction starts at 8am EST and will go until 10:30pm EST on June 11, 2009.
  • Throughout the day I will be updating each item with the current highest bid. I will do so frequently throughout the day as they come in! Check back often!
  • At 10:30pm EST, I will stop taking bids. I hope to have the full list of winner’s up shortly thereafter! Each winner is asked to donate their winning bid to my donation page. You must make your donation in your name or at minimum your initials or blog name so I know that it is your donation. Once that is done, I will provide the winner with the email of the item donor to collect the winner’s mailing address.
  • Please do NOT place a bid on an item if you have no desire to follow through with payment!
  • In the event that someone does not donate the winning bid, I will go to the runner up bid and contact that individual.
  • ALL BIDS CAN BE MADE BY VISITING MY ONLINE DONATION PAGE!

 Now let’s raise some fabulous cash for cancer now shall we!? :D

Patak’s Mild curry paste:
We all love curry right! But what are we worried about, the SPICINESS. When some one new to Indian cooking wants to try it at home, the most they are worried about is the complexity. No worries use this mild curry paste and you will have delicious curries in no time. Plus you don’t have to worry about the mystery spices anymore!

Patak’s tandoori paste:
Cook up some Tandoori with just a few ingredients that you will have in your kitchen and then add this paste. You completely eliminate the spice part and you can get some Chicken Tikka or tandoori cooking up on your very own grill.

Deep’s Sweet mango chutney:

Also in the pack you will find a sweet mango chutney, a wonderful condiment that can be used in so many ways! Spread it on a wrap/pita/bun and jazz up your lunch with the exotic taste of mango and spices!!

All the products are a great way to take the plunge and make some Indian food right in your own kitchen. Since many of you out there do not have access to Indian grocery stores or have a hard time deciding the spices, these ready pastes are a wonderful and simple addition to your pantry.

With this I’ll be sending a few simple and easy recipes to use these pastes. So you don’t have to worry and think about what you do with them?!

In the pack you will also find an unused Red beaded necklace!

And last but certainly not least!!!

Honorable Sir

With due respect I am submitting few lines for your kind consideration. I have come to know through reliable sources and internet that you are devoting services for the well being of humanity.

Incidentally I am submitting that I have a large poor family. Therefore there is no financial support for me. Please help me financially. It will not be a great relief to a poor family but will also be a great act of charity on your honor part. I am waiting for your favorable reply.

I belong to a very poor family with all of the children under studying. All of my children are getting education some of them are in the college and one of them in the university.

Kindly help me as it can only change the life of one lady but also the life of one complete nation.

Yours faithfully
