I cannot express how gratifying it is to share this. From our fundraiser (so far…), we just made a donation to Citizens United for Research in Epilepsy in the amount of

$622.20

Thank you to all who volunteered their time (and money) to help put on Speaking of Seizures. It was a success and we could not have done it without the dedication and friendship that is found in our beautiful little poetry community.

We have leftover items from the silent auction and since the whole month of November is dedicated to raising awareness about epilepsy, we have decided to keep the auction going. I’d like to make another donation at the end of the month. If you see something you want, please email us a bid and item number. As an incentive to raise as much as we can, we’re not going to post bids, so this part of the auction is going to be silent AND blind.
