Neurofibromatosis, Inc.’s fifth annual Doodle Day USA celebrity charity auction will begin on eBay Thursday, May 12.
If you are not familiar with Doodle Day, here’s how it works. The Doodle Day Committee mails out hundreds of packets to celebrities, movie stars, television personalities, sports figures, renowned authors and musicians. Each packet contains a letter asking the recipient to draw a doodle on the card that is enclosed, autograph it, and submit it to the committee. The doodles range from scant scribbles to detailed drawings, and each one is vital to the success of Doodle Day.
The doodles will be posted soon on the Doodle Day website at www.doodledayusa.org, so check often! You can also view past years doodles which include Barack Obama, Gillian Anderson, Ellen DeGeneres, Steve Martin, Tim Allen, Jason Alexander, Paul Michael Glaser and Howie Mandel, just to name a few. The eBay auction is publicized and the bidding begins! The highest bidder of each doodle will win the auction and receive the original card. The auction itself raises awareness of NF, and auction proceeds further our efforts to support NF patients and their families.
Help make this year’s Doodle Day Auction a success. If you have any connection to a “celebrity”, email firstname.lastname@example.org and request a packet. Encourage your celebrity to submit a doodle! Spread the word to family, friends and fans, then join the fun and place your bids!
