Legal Defense Fund Auction
Help SPJ sustain the Legal Defense Fund by donating an item for this years LDF auction.
Our theme for this years auction is Share Your Talents, because we believe that individuality and personal touch are the most attractive aspects of an auction item.
Share your talents and the skills of your friends and family. Are you crafty? Donate a handmade scarf to the auction. Does your brother enjoy pottery? Ask him to contribute a piece for this important cause. Have a friend with a small business who wants exposure? See if theyll submit a bit of their merchandise to be displayed before hundreds of people make sure they include business cards! There are so many ways to share your gifts with others and, in turn, help protect the First Amendment. You can donate a service, too, like a résumé critique, interview practice and copy editing. Tell us how youd like to participate.
We need a variety of items, so were giving you many ways to contribute.
You can select an item from our list and volunteer to donate it by clicking the Ill donate this! link, which will allow you to email SPJ headquarters with your donation information. You will receive a confirmation email with donation instructions within two business days from SPJ headquarters. If you have questions, please email Ellen Kobe at email@example.com.
