Thankful Thursday

Oh, so much to be grateful for today!

* So thankful that we've been able to figure out and build an identity for The Kyrie Foundation on eBay for the online portion of Metamorphosis 2009! (Us cowpokes at the ranch are less tech savvy than we appear to be.) At least a dozen pieces of art will be up for auction. Set your alarms: the Metamorphosis eBay auction launches on TOMORROW, Friday, November 6 at 8:00 p.m. CST and runs through next Friday.

* So thankful that WDAF Fox-4 in Kansas City has scheduled a LIVE REMOTE from Studio 2131 at 8:50 a.m. on Wednesday morning as we're prepping the venue for Thursday night. Can you believe that?!? We really, really, really hope that it will raise awareness and inspire more guests for the event.


Can I let you in on a little secret?

Get close.



Okay, there are really super-thoughtful, super-affordable items being offered at the auction. I've been thinking all week that I should be doing all my shopping at charity auctions. Great deals. Specialty items. No tax. Every penny goes to a good cause. And with Christmas lists looming, you could knock out a good chunk with us!

Here are just a few of the most recent interesting additions:
• Need to clean a Johnson County speeding ticket from your record? You can bid on that.
• Want to grill Kansas City Steak Company steaks all summer long? You can bid on that.
• Want a gorgeous, unconventional photo shoot with We Are the Parsons? You can bid on that.
• And perhaps we'll even be able to offer a walk-on role with the Emmy-winning Unreal Housewives of Kansas City!

It's been a load of work to plan, but I can't imagine not doing something to fight this cancer. Today? Nine more families got the news while I was at work. I would hope that if I were one of those moms, somebodies like me and you would send a few e-mails, make a few phone calls, plan an event and put this research quest into high gear.

So thankful for all the little miracles that have bubbled up to make Metamorphosis 2009 happen.
