Silent Auction for Birth Mother Baskets

It is no secret that we love adoption around our house. I have so many wonderful friends that I have met through adoption connections. Gina is one of them. She is amazing and I love that work that she does with her non-profit organization Birth Mother Baskets {bmb}. 
Birth Mother Baskets delivers gift baskets to birth mothers who have recently placed their babies for adoption.  These gift baskets hold so much more than just the tangible items inside of them. They are filled with love, warmth and support. I love this story that Gina recently posted about a donation for bmb for an eagle scout project. The letter Morgan wrote to include with the baskets...amazing! What a great story.

bmb runs 100% on donations alone and has no paid staff. Each year bmb has a silent auction to help raise money for the baskets. Funds from the auction will go towards items to fill baskets, shipping cost and marketing material.
