Buy Kerri Sackville! (and feed an orphan)

Ever wanted Kerri Sackville?


And now you can have her.*

Well you can have two of her books anyway, personally signed by her own fair hand INCLUDING A PERSONALISED MESSAGE. Yes, I'll even post them overseas!

These are the books:

Actually it's the uber exotic UK printing which has a different cover.
But the insides are the same. 
You just have to promise to read it in a posh British accent.

See above. Same deal. 
This time though you have to read it in an authentic 
Arfa Daley Eastenders-style Cockney accent. Awright guv?

You can find the talented Kerri herself here.

All you have to do to get these snazbig items sent to you via Express Post is to hand over your hard-earned moolah.

But it's not quite that simple!

Did you know that Cate Bolt saves the lives of orphans and the elderly every day in Indonesia?

Seriously. Amazing. Shit.

She set up and runs Foundation 18 without any help. The orphanage is funded through donations and through the foundation's Etsy shop.

Unfortunately Cate is unwell at the moment and this means that she can't be as active in fundraising as she normally would be.

So now you have a chance to bid to get your hands on a copy of each of Kerri's terrific books - along with KERRI's autograph. All proceeds will be donated to Foundation 18's efforts supporting orphans and the elderly in Indonesia.

A big smoochy snoggy thank you to the gorgeous Kerri Sackville for agreeing to sign her life away be part of this event.

How to bid

  1. Bidding for each book starts at $20, which is approximately RRP. So now we get to find out how much Kerri Sackville's autograph is really worth!
  2. To bid, send me an email here with your name, which book you're bidding on, and the highest amount you're prepared to pay. YOU ONLY GET TO BID ONCE per book so make it count!
  3. Yes you can bid on both books at once.
  4. No you don't have to bid on both. If not bidding on both please specify which book you want.
  5. That's it.
Bidding starts as soon as this blog post appears and finishes at midnight on Tuesday 20 November.

If you win, you get the book, including a personalised message and autograph from the author herself.

Here's the fine print:

  • It would be really helpful if you had a PayPal account (if you don't, and you REALLY want to bid, talk to me, we will work it out).
  • Highest bidder for each book will be notified by Sunday 2 December.
  • The book(s) will be posted to you after payment has been received.
  • Your name and details will be announced on this blog after the auction has finished (unless you want to be anonymous).
  • Bidding is silent and will run on an honour system. If you bid but don't pay, I will hunt you down. (Actually, you'll just be disqualified and the next highest bidder will get the book).
  • Nobody associated with Five Frogs Blog will make a cent out of the auction. All proceeds will go to Foundation 18.

What are you waiting for?

*Not really. Well maybe you can but you need to contact her directly for that. I'll pimp her signature for charity but... umm... you know. Even sweary frogs have limits. Not that there's anything wrong with that. I'll shut up now.

**This may be a lie. I don't know Santa personally. But I can guarantee at least one of you will get A GREAT BOOK BY KERRI SACKVILLE.

UPDATED: Congratulations to Mark F from New York for his winning bid. $150 has now been donated.

Thanks everyone for bidding and spreading the word. Special thanks to gorgeous Kerri for playing along.

Don't forget you can still donate using the links above!
