I doubt there are many families who haven't been touched by diabetes, one of the fastest growing health problems in the developed world, especially among children.

Each year, author Brenda Novak, organises a charity auction from her website to raise funds for research into this disease. It runs during May and this year Brenda has some truly outstanding donations to auction. Bid for the chance to take eight of your friends to tea with Debbie Macomber, jewellery, for a signed baseball, all kinds of stuff from your favourite authors. My donation, a silver Welsh Love Spoon pendant and a signed book, is item # 57.

There are also fabulous prizes for the most active bidders, so take a look at what's on offer, treat yourself to something that money can't buy.

You can take a look at all the what's on offer here at
the auction list.

That's quite an annual undertaking by Brenda Novak. Well done you for getting involved.

Perhaps we ought to think about organising a UK equivalent? Tea with Liz Fielding, perhaps???

Well, maybe tea with me and an HMB editor! No good offering it for Brenda's auction, though. Bit of a long way to come for most of the bidders!

Definitely a "thinking cap" idea, though.
