Many of you who know me from GLVWG or those of you that follow me on Twitter are aware of my weakness for worthy causes as evidence from my involvement with the Poems With Heart project.

This May, join Brenda Novak by supporting her annual online auction to help those who suffer from diabetes, which is the 5th deadliest killer.

The money from will be donated to The Diabetes Research Institute at the University of Miami. The Diabetes Research Institute is a recognized world leader in cure-focused research. They have made significant contributions to the field of diabetes research, pioneering many of the techniques used in islet cell transplantation. From innovations in islet isolation and transplant procedures to advances in cell biology and immunology, the Diabetes Research Institute is now harnessing the power of emerging technologies to develop new cell-based therapies to restore insulin production.

Her auction includes many unique items to be enjoyed by readers along with opportunities for writers. Not only will you be bidding on these exciting items but you’ll be supporting diabetes research. For more information on the Diabetes Research Institute visit them on the web at

  1. A.C. I’m part of the auction team and I wanted to thank you for helping to spread the word about the auction. We’ve already raised over $1.6 million over the previous years and our goal is to break through $2 million this year. You’re helping us to do that with your support and generosity by posting about the auction and we appreciate it. We have new items added daily, have some wonderful opportunity drawings, and a fantastic grand prize for the person with the most bids.
