christmas charity auction :: maggie’s

I am very excited to announce that I have (finally!) launched my first annual Christmas charity auction over on eBay, in aid of Maggie’s Dundee.

One of the major perks of writing a blog and being a design journalist is all the fabulous freebies I get given. I am of course very grateful to everybody who has been generous enough to give me one of their products, but I am also keenly aware of the need to maintain my independence in order to keep writing a blog that you can trust, so last year I made the decision to auction all these goodies once a year to raise money for charity.

Whether you’re still looking for a few last minute Christmas gifts, or you’re all finished and deserve a treat yourself, check it out and place your bids in the knowledge that every penny will help Maggie’s provide emotional, practical and social support to people with cancer and their families and friends.

Over on my newly created confessions of a design geek eBay page you will find the following items (click on the links below to get to the eBay page for each one):

But get in quick – the auctions all end on Thursday 19th December. (If you want your purchases before Christmas, make sure you process the payment that day, so I can get them in the first class post on Friday 20th.) Happy bidding – and good luck!


With thanks to everyone who donated items for the auction. NB Shipping to the UK only.
