Talent for Haiti auction

I've already mentioned Talent for Haiti, who will be running their online auction this week. All proceeds will go to Médecins Sans Frontières. Here are some of the many items contributed so far.

[Glen Hansard and Mark Geary in New York, by Paddy Glennon]

How about this for a gala item: Mark Geary and Glen Hansard in concert in your own home. It's stipulated that the home should be no more than two hours from Dublin, so despite the new motorway I don't quite qualify. Otherwise I'd be belting out "you see how hard it can be to keep your side of the deal" and "did I watch you wash away your life and polish up the forks and knifes" all week in readiness. You can already bid on the concert here.

Lovely accessories from Fen and Ned

Keep in touch with the donations and the auction here:

  4. mise
    haha, ooops, i thought you meant like a framed photo of a concert at first. which would be really cool. then im thinking why does it have to stay within 2 hours of dublin??? so mise can come over and look at it? duh
    i get it now. but i dont qualify either :(
    best wishes for the auction !!!!

  5. The kids had a non uniform day today in school, was so proud of my 2 that they gave their pocket money (well, I sort of bribed them into it by saying I'd give paper money if they did, but in the end they were happy enough) :)

  6. Oooh! Wow! What a great idea! Imagine...

    Thanks for spreading the word!

  7. 2 hours travelling how? If they ran really really fast might they get to me in time?

    Fab idea for fundraising, and so good of you to promote it x

  8. Check out my blog...there's an award for you! Cx

  9. Great way to raise much needed cash for Haiti. I love those little lady hair pins!

  10. Mise...what a great effort. So good to see people come together for such a worthy cause. I hope it raises lots of money. I for one would like to keep my eye on that red cashmere coat !
    Jeanne :)

  11. A brilliant idea, to have an auction, Mise. I hope it goes well and that they raise a lot of money.
    I'll try and arrange some sunbeams !! XXXX

  12. Fantastic idea and fabulous items. I love those hairpins! xo Gigi

  13. Hi Mise
    Sorry I was a little late getting over here.. You know it is Australia Day here and I was out competing in the candlestick hurling.. which means I've had a little practice.. Oh then I had to stunt double for Cheryl Tiegs. It was a dangerous shoot but I kept my Armanis firmly attached.

    Well this is a fabulous idea to raise money for Haiti.. I hope they do well and raise much needed funds for this worthy cause. Maybe you could move a few miles and get yourself that concert... xx Julie

  14. Sorry about the two hours deal, Mise. I'm sure your family is, too, because now they don't get to hear you belting that out all week. May these fundraisers be bountiful for those in Haiti.

  15. I'll let you borrow my house,for those lyrics alone it'll be worth it.....i'm serious....i'll even throw in a sleep over in the emperors golden bed...

  16. Jaboopee, I'd love to take you up on that kind offer, though a sleepover in the golden bed is probably worth an auction all of its own. I see, however, that bidding on the house-gig has now gone to 4,200 sterling so I'd be depriving my children of their lunchtime caviare if I were to win.

  17. Some gorgeous donations. I shall have a wee peek. xx

  18. This is great. SO good to see creative ways of helping.

    Thanks for your comment on my blog - I do agree about the children's clothes. Our boys are too old now, though!

  19. Beautiful blog, have a nice day Radka.

  20. Only two hours away from Dublin.... I wonder if time at the airport counts?


You're looking particularly well.
