Aw wow - really blown away by this very generous gesture - I was made aware of this today by the Mayor of Dreamsville and we are so grateful to the parties who kindly donated the cd`s -
Just to let you know that we have a very inspirational young man - Brandon aged 10 and his family staying at Sara`s Retreat as we speak - Brandon was diagnosed with an incurable brain tumour when he was 2 years old and has endured 8 years of chemo and radiotherapy - he is an absolute angel and is having a ball - it`s only through the generosity of individuals like Bill and his fans that we can make dreams come true
Warmest wishes and a sincere thank you
Ged and Julie xx

ps I will have to sweet talk Julie as along with Caliban this is the only cd that I don`t have in my collection

The first auction ended north of $500... not too shabby, a fine chunk of cash for the charity; I did my best to win, but it got too rich for my meager means.

Second set of Blip! went for $585... I'm impressed, no, I'm blown away by the generosity of those who bid for these, nicely done. 8)

The final pair of BLIP CDs has now been claimed.

Some fantastic amounts raised so I can confirm that after ebay and paypal fees were deducted (and your generous Mayor rounded it up with a few quid 8) ), a grand total of £1000 has been raised for Sara's Hope Foundation.

A sincere thank you to those generous people who donated their CDs, these acts of kindness really do make a difference!

Jon.
