It's unfortunate but news reports suggest that there isn't much aid or attention given to the famine in Somalia which appears to only be getting worse. 3/4 of a million people are facing famine conditions. The auction seems rather quiet at the moment so do contribute if you can. Please help. For more info on the Auction, click on the banner!(

Thanks to [livejournal.com profile] rubber_glue for the promo info!

This is a reminder that everyone donating money for the the HTFAD Auction over at [livejournal.com profile] m_in_wonderland has 24 hours left (28th of July 2011 @11.59PM CST World Clock) to donate and email some form of verification to me via [miladyinpurple@gmail.com].

So far only four people have send me verification so I would really love it if everyone else did so as well. That way I know that money has been donated.

If you were wondering, the money that has been raised so far is $215. Thank you to [livejournal.com profile] robinmarian for your very generous donation!

If you have any issues with donating money, please go to the questions post to place a comment there and I will try my best to respond to you.

So many of you know that for the past year I have been battling with bad depression and anxiety. Well after the positive response I got from some of you in my previous posts, I have decided to be more active in raising awareness surrounding the stigma that is often associated with depression.

In Australia there is a organization called beyondblue which is a national, independent, not-for-profit organisation working to address issues associated with depression, anxiety and related disorders in Australia.

So my proposal is this: I will be hosting an auction on my fanwork journal [livejournal.com profile] m_in_wonderland offering to write little fics, art & fan mixes for the highest bidder. The money raised will be donated to the beyondblue Depression Research Ancillary Fund Trust Deed (link). If you want to donate money without participating in the auction that is ok. The more money the better! Visit here to find out more info on how to donate and how the money donated will be spent.

So give what you can and feel free to spread the word! Depression is one of the most common of all mental health problems and 1 in 5 people will at one stage have depression. So it's so important for all of us to help raise awareness and reduce the stigma associated with it so that people know that they can get help and have the programs and services available to them.

I would really appreciate anything that people are willing to give. As you know this is something very close to my heart, so your support would just be magnificent!

ETA: The amazing [livejournal.com profile] rubber_glue suggested that I open the auction for anyone who wants to make something for people to bid on. So if you want to either participate in the auction or offer to make something for it for people to bid on, please let me know here and then I can do a proper post for the auction.

ETA 2: I just posted the Auction Thread here so please visit here for guidelines on how to participate and do what you can to support this very important cause!
