House from Left to Right: Bobbi Brown, Diane von Furstenberg, Oscar de la Renta.
I am completely obsessed with Gingerbread houses, making them is my favorite thing to do each holiday with my son. We actually sign up for a class each year and are getting to be quite the pros at this! But after seeing these houses above, I realize we have much to learn!!! How adorable are these houses for sale at CharityBuzz.com ?? They are being sold to raise funds for a very deserving organization, “Women In Need”. Each house is valued at $5,000 but the bids start low at $150! The auction will go from now until November 30th. I’m bidding on all three houses above but there are many many more (including Jennifer Lopez and Vera Wang)! Want to join me? Go to CharityBuzz.com here.
Charity proceeds go to “Women in Need”: an organization that provides housing, help and hope to New York City women and their families who are homeless and disadvantaged
Women In Need, Inc. (WIN) provides housing, help and hope to New York City women and their families who are homeless and disadvantaged. Through comprehensive programs such as shelter, supportive permanent housing, job training, domestic violence services, alcohol and substance abuse treatment and childcare, WIN offers the tools and guidance which allow families to return to their communities and live independently.
