Auction deadline is near

If you’d like to help SPJ raise money for its Legal Defense Fund – which you should – there’s still time to donate to the auction at this year’s national convention.

You have until August 17 to send in your items.

There’s both a silent auction and a live auction, which tends to be, well, lively.

If you have good intentions but you’re stumped, here are some ideas of what you can donate. It doesn’t have to be fancy and it doesn’t have to be related to journalism.

One of the items I plan to donate was prominent in a scandal – across the sea – with many arrests – revealing shocking ethical breaches. Cheers.

  1. Thanks for the suggestion! I donated signed copies of my books, How to Raise Chickens and How to Raise Poultry. Lots of great photos, but personal favorite part is Robert Frost’s poem about his favorite chicken, which I received permission to include in HTR Chickens. To him, this wonderful chalk-white pullet was “Mother Eve.”
