Asking for your help because Ebay is taking money from kids with Cancer

It's a blizzard here in a Pennsylvania and a perfect opportunity to catch up with your blogs and hear about all the warm and fuzzy things going on in all of your lives.

Then I read this and I got pissed.

Let me sum it up for you. Jaden Duttine is a 2 year old little boy with stage four cancer. You can read his story by clicking on his cute picture along the right hand side of my blog.

Supahmommy, who is a friend of the family, offered to hold an auction to help raise some fundage for this family because like it or not cancer is expensive.

Many bloggers, including myself, donated numerous items for the auction. Ebay agreed to host and waive any fees associated with the whole shindig.

Until now.

Now Ebay is trying to take nearly $500 from a little boy with cancer.

$500 bucks to Ebay is nothing. $500 bucks to the Duttine family is groceries, a car payment, co-pays. You get the picture.

Join me in blogging about this. Twittering about this. Sending an email to the big-wigs at ebay. Links and a suggested letter are on Supah's blog.

If Ebay doesn't change their mind please consider, like me, canceling your Ebay account. After all, there is always Craig's list.

Thanks for your help!
