Ugh.. Why didn’t I think of that?!?

For the past few weeks Cheryl has been selling items for friends and family members on eBay. I wouldn’t go so far as to call it a side business, but it is earning us a few bucks here and there to help with our monthly expenses. Of course, we’d be making alot more money at it if we had thought of this!

Rochelle Steffen, a dog-lover from Missouri, gave her two dogs, a 6-year-old Weimaraner and a Great Dane pup, a stack of Michael Vick football cards to chew up. Then she put them up for auction on eBay. The bidding ended today at $7,400.

Now, in Steffen’s case all of the money will be donated to the Humane Society. Had I thought of it I probably would have suggested a different charity. Namely the Get The Bertou’s Outta The Poorhouse Foundation. But still… $7,400 for a mere handful of now completely worthless football cards!

  1. I was blown away to see the total reach $7,400!!! It’s a great cause and it’s important to bring awareness of how cruel the act of dog fighting is. I’ve seen a few other similar auctions rolling on eBay as well.. but none of those are fetching the same attention as that one did.
