Life is not all about making a buck for yourself, sometimes you just need to something to help others in need - at least that's my philosophy. For the last 12 years I've been coordinating an online auction to benefit the Alaska Airlines Employee Assistance Fund - an amazing program this is set up as a 501 3(c) non-profit. The fund exists to provide a safety net of financial support to employees who are unable to work due to illness or injury. Once their vacation and sick leave are gone, the Fund steps in and pays the employee's bills (mortgage, medical, insurance, food, utilities) until they are able to return to work. The auction raises money for the fund and occurs for two weeks in the fall. www.eafauction.com. I'm responsible for all of the photography, data entry, and item descriptions.
