2010 Online Christmas Auction
The Auction is closed, but our hope for SMA continues!

2010 Online Christmas Auction

Thank You for Sharing in our Hope!

During the holiday season, over 125 incredible items were up for grabs on eBay and a bidding frenzy resulted. The Hope and Light Foundation raised over $6,000 for its mission to eliminate Spinal Muscular Atrophy, and we thank everyone who participated. Congratulations to each and every auction winner!

Thank you to all who helped us out with items for the auction and spread the word about the event. Our volunteers and supporters sent hundreds of emails, tweeted, and posted on Facebook about the auction to help get it off to an amazing start. We also reached thousands of people outside the SMA community through this virtual world-wide event. But most of all, thank you to each and every person who bid on an item in this year's auction. We could not do what we do for SMA without your support!
