The time has come to begin WAMCARE’s auction of celebrity signed photos and memorabilia. I will make a post in a short while, letting you all know which items will be the first to be auctioned. All items will be auctioned on EBAY a few at a time, and posted with good quality packaging from the UK to wherever you live, postage rates will depend on where you are located, and the nature of the item. All profits will go straight to top quality research into ME/CFS.
At the moment, our website is full and yet we still have many more quality items to auction. Therefore stay tuned for updates which will be added over the next few weeks, including a cast poster of popular Australian soap Home and Away signed by most of the cast, kindly arranged for us by actress Esther Anderson who has been very supportive to the cause.
Items we have at the moment can be found on the auction page of our website, here: http://www.wamcare.org/auction.html you can also find out more about ME/CFS here and why research is essential.

Photos are provided on our website, and higher quality photos will be used on EBAY. Letters from the agents have been included on the website if they were present.
We at WAMCARE wish to express our gratitude to all the celebrities and their agencies that have contributed to this charity fundraising auction. We have received personal, encouraging letters of support from many wonderful people, which will soon be available for viewing in the supporters section of our website. We are moved and grateful that these busy celebs and their agents took the time to write to us and send us such terrific items. We would like to thank them on behalf of the millions of people affected by ME/CFS worldwide for helping make possible WAMCARE's continuing mission to improve the lives of everyone affected by this devastating illness.

Although many of us may have already downloaded the song, let's show Sara how much we love and support her hard work. This is by far one of the best renditions of "Silent Night". Ever.
Spread the word, buy some great music, and support a wonderful cause.
Have a wonderful Holiday.
Last weekend was the community donation drive and it our efforts were greatly appreciated by Sara and the folks over at the foundation. I heard from Sara about it and just wanted to deliver the message, as well as info about the availability of "Silent Night".
"I am thrilled and so grateful for all you and the fans did with the donation drive. It is really touching and I know Al is looking down on us with a very full heart about all this. Oh! I also wanted to share with you that my version of "Silent Night" (recorded for and played on Grey's Anatomy--the "Holidaze" episode) is now on sale on iTunes, Amazon, and all other internet outlets. I will be taking the proceeds from it and donating it to the ADRLF. Please let the fans know in case they're interested. I realize a lot of people figure out a way to copy it without buying it, but if they know where the money is going I hope it will inspire folks to purchase it instead." Take care, Sara
I'll post a separate note about "Silent Night" but wanted to share this directly with you all. Thanks to everyone who participated in the donation drive. Our efforts did not go unnoticed. And if you did not get the chance to participate, consider purchasing "Silent Night" online.
Happy Holidays and a wonderful New Year!
Here’s what to do:
1) Go to the ADRLF website over the weekend of December 18-20 (THIS WEEKEND) and submit a donation. Feel free to donate as little or as much as you can.
2) Label your donation “Sara Ramirez fan community”
3) After you’ve submitted your donation, send me a note with your holiday message to Sara for the card via PM on my LJ page (username: iluvcallie).
Note: The moderators of this community have approved this community donation drive and the donations go directly to the foundation.
Let’s show Sara how much we love her while lending our support to this worthy cause.
Happy Holidays and a Prosperous New Year!
