BeautyBloggers.orgSo this year’s charity auction is over, and all in all, we raised $5,027.30 for Doctors Without Borders. Folks, I could not be more thrilled. I know everybody feels this way about their favorite charities, but MSF does so much good worldwide, I get a little verklempt thinking we were able to help them.

I am amazed by the generosity of our bidders, especially those who donated a little extra, or bid more than retail because it was for a great cause.

And I want to especially recognize and thank lemonprint, who emailed me yesterday and said, “how much more do you need to get to $5,000?” Wow. I would have been proud no matter how much we raised, but I am elated that we surpassed my secret, unofficial goal for this auction.

I am amazed by the number (and generosity) of brands who volunteered to donate. Sincere thanks to:

I am amazed by the generosity of our participating bloggers (for their donations, for cheerfully shipping their products all over the world, and for working so hard to get the word out to bidders). Tremendous props to:

Thank you, everyone!

I’m excited for next year’s auction.

    oh and i totally love that you picked MSF as your charity of choice. that is my favorite charity as well, not only because of all the amazing work they do, but because such a high percentage of donations goes to actually helping people as opposed to management costs or whatnot. again, karla, amazing work!

  • I’m also a big follower of MSF, I humbly admire their hard work & dedication to their job.
