Auction of seven, high-end items to be held on the 7th of each month and run for seven days.

BARNARD, Vt., Sept. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ -- Making it Better (M.I.B) Agents has set a goal to make 'Lucky 7' the

magic number to raise research dollars and end of life comfort for kids with Osteosarcoma, bone cancer. Beginning 7 a.m. EDT on Friday, Sept. 7, through 7 p.m. EDT, Friday, Sept. 14, the nationwide nonprofit will hold its first, monthly online auction fundraiser. For each auction, bidders can select among seven, high-end, items donated by benefactors of M.I.B Agents. Items featured in the first auction include vintage Hermès scarves and bags, as well as Prada shoes. To preview the items, click here. One hundred percent of the proceeds provide direct patient support, such as providing iPads to kids in treatment, planning end-of-life experiences, funding meaningful research and producing the annual osteosarcoma research conference.

"Our goal is to promote excitement and more exposure for our M.I.B Agents' mission," explained Ann Graham, president and founder, M.I.B Agents. "By joining in on the bidding, or by donating great items for future auctions, individuals can have confidence that their contributions will measurably increase research and patient support for a rare form of cancer that unfortunately has scarcity of funding."

How to Join the Bidding and Contribute Items for Future 'Lucky 7' Auctions

All online auction items are housed in a temperature-controlled "Reserve" location nearby the Lukana's Dream Company thrift shop in Bethel, Vt. Winning bidders will receive a verified receipt and contacted by the organization to obtain shipping and tracking information.

To participate in the auction, bidders will be required to open an account on the eBay for Charity platform and visit the M.I.B agents' auction page. Bidders can set a maximum payment for each item and the system will automatically keep outbidding others until the item is won or the bidding amount hits the maximum. The bidding site is safe and secure. PayPal, credit cards and Automated Clearing House (ACH) are acceptable forms of payment

Individuals wishing to contribute items for future auctions make a contribution by contacting Briana Paronto at Briana(at)MIBagents(dot)org.
