In light of recent developments in South East Asia, I'd like to modify the auction slightly. Instead of the American Red Cross, the proceeds will be going to the International Federation of Red Cross and Red Crescent Societies (http://www.IFRC.ORG) These organizations have been, and will continue, to help out not only in the tsunami disaster victims but also the current victims of wars across the globe.
In this holiday season many of us feel the need to do something to help out those who are going through crushing times. The IFRC works to help everyone across the board. By participating in the 12th Knight Auction this year, either as a donor or by bidding on goods and services offered, you can take some small comfort in the knowledge that you are helping folks who are in desperate need this year.
