Ring for Haiti, Auctions

I'm sure by now, you have been deeply moved by the sufferings of the Haitian people due to the 7.0 magnitude earthquake less than a month ago. A lot of you have made donations to your favorite charities. I'm appealing to all of you yet another fun way.

My metalsmith friends and I have decided to donate one of our handmade rings to be auctioned on eBay to raise money for the relief. There are a total of 50 rings, and they will be posted on eBay at the rate of 2 new rings per day. All money will go to the charity, GlobalGiving. Each auction will last 7 days, beginning tonight with a ring I made. Starting prices are set low to entice donations for this worthy cause. The link to eBay is http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=290397426403&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:ITViewItem&item=290397426403&ssPageName=STRK:MESELX:IT. This auction ends Monday, Feb 8. Please help by bidding on these rings and/or spread the words. Merci!!!
