Crankypants + Goodmama = Love!

I have been sitting on my hands for a couple of days waiting to post about this, and I just got the green light from Suzanne over at The Good Mama to post about it, so yay!

In mid November, Crankypants will be teaming up with Suzanne from The Good Mama and Molly from Tree City Diapers to bring you the charity auction of the season! We will be auctioning off a dynamic duo of one Goodmama fitted in one of her gorgeous prints (the print will be announced soon, please do not send email inquiries because we aren't sure what will be available yet-we do know there will be one boy and one girl option for the winner to choose from) paired up with a semi custom Crankypants slot. All of the proceeds will go towards purchasing diapers for Miracle Diapers, who we heard are in desperate need of donations right now. It gets better. When Molly from Tree City Diapers heard what we were doing, she generously offered to MATCH the high bid in free diapers and supplies from her store! Yay Molly! So keep your eyes peeled for the specific time and place for the auction, we are still working out the details. Feel free to spread the word, we want this auction t get the most buzz possible so we can send a big fatty box of diapers to Miracle Diapers and make their holiday season!

Kerri- I have started on the legs of your longies, so I hope to have them done this weekend!

Well, it's nice to see you giving back, Amy. One would think with as much as you make off of your auctions, you could afford to. Your next good deed should be offering purchase slots again on Hyena Cart, for those that can't, or won't, pay $200 or more for one pair of wool pants or shorts. Greed and popularity have gone to your head.

Wow...did mama never teach you 'if you can't say sumthin' nice...'??? I think with a little tweaking, Miracle Diapers could be rollin' in charity duds :)

Amy, that is the most wonderful, generous idea! You guys are going to really help a lot of people who can't otherwise afford to cloth diaper this way! I cannot wait to see what the collab. looks like!

YAY!!!! What an AWESOME idea!! I hope it ends up helping MD a TON!

I think it is a GREAT idea to! MD really could use the fluff for mama's in need, and want to put fluff on the babies! Don't worry about what anyone else thinks, because what you are doing is a truly wonderful thing! And if someone thinks your prices are to high, they are not obligated to spend their $$!
Best of luck

Oh Amy! That's a wonderful idea. I especially like that Molly will be matching the donations - I hope she knows what she's getting herself into!! LOL Good luck with the auction. What a generous gift to give Miracle Diapers. :)

Geez, no matter what I do people always have something to say, huh?

Anon. If you can't or won't bid on one of my HC auctions, you are welcome to try for a regular slot via email (which I'll say AGAIN are the bulk of my custom orders and are priced between $72-90) on the first just like everyone else does. I will no longer be listing regular slots on HC because not all of my customers want to register for an account there and it is easier for me to do the email thing. I can assure you, if greed and popularity had gone to my head I would be doing all of my customs as auctions and not raising my prices when I have a waiting list of 150+. It would be nice if people actually took the time to find out about the way I do things before they get all self righteous and indignant...

Amy,

You have a great attitude towards Crankpants and everything else you do. Don't let anyone get to you. Besides, anyone who hides behind anonymity isn't worth worrying about anyway.
