Alabama man uses eBay to eat amid a grim economy
Here's the link:
Here's the auction contents:
We just need to eat...
No fancy gimmicks,
No unethical tactics,
You are actually bidding on a Thank You card that
you will receive in the mail.
We just want to go to the grocery store
we'd even accept a Food World gift certificate as payment
to prove we need groceries, not the money.
(Food World is the only chain in town who does gift certificates that you can buy online)
The economy is crap, gas is OMG outrageous... after paying our house payment, we simply can not go to the grocery store.
If you can find it on your hearts to help... I'd be tremendously grateful.
It's not like I'm not trying to make it...
My wife works, I work, I'm also in college..
The bills are just too high!!!
Thanks and God Bless!!
If the bid gets too high or if you would like to donate anonymously
please send your donation to our PayPal address:
It can be from $0.01 and up, doesn't matter.
Every little bit helps.
MANY, MANY thanks go out to those who have already bid.
God Bless You!
This is not really a charity auction.
I've had some folks contact me with some hateful words and all
I can respond with is a firm "God Bless You."
I'm not begging here, I'll starve before I beg anyone for anything.
I'm just asking for a little help and compassion.
We are working very hard and the ends just will not meet.
To the folks who HAVE bid, thank you so much!!
And remember, if the bid is too high for you
and you still want to help out, please look
above just a little and find our PayPal address.
You can send funds directly to our account.
Or copy this link into your web browser to purchase a Gift Card redeemable only at
Food World if you think I may be after just the money, which I'm not.
I wanna EAT!!
Please consider helping my family out, even if you can only send $1.
Thanks again and
GOD BLESS YOU ALL!!
If the bid gets high (and I'm not saying it will)
we will turn around and donate 100% of whats left to
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital
That's the only way we can think of to return the favor and blessing of what is donated to us.
Like I said, we just wanna fill our cabinets.
Anything more than that will go directly to
St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
Thanks again to those who have bid so far!!
