Conference Coverage

Inman’s Got Enough Money. Let’s Give Some To MFFO

It doesn’t get any better than this – you can actually get Inman Connect Tickets and help a charity at the same time!  I was the lucky winner of Inman Real Estate Connect Registration Passes and with the creative help of some friends (thanks @tcar and @andykaufman) decided to auction them for charity.

Inman Connect San Francisco
I’m sure @jbern had no clue what was going to happen when he started the competition: What’s Your Tweet Worth? ….between Jay Thomson’s raffle and this auction, there are some creative minds at work to help our colleagues as well as great charities.

So here’s what I would love for you to do –

1.  go place a bid

2   spread the word  **tweet it! facebook it! email it! **

3. check on the bid

4.  spread the word again **tweet it! facebook it! email it! **

The highest bidder will win full registration to Inman Connect San Francisco (both Inman Connect and Blogger’s Connect passes) and proceeds will go to Mothers Fighting For Others (that’s a $939 value).  What are you waiting for??? Go Bid!  We will be announcing the winner before the weekend.

**thanks for the tix Inman!!  Let’s see how much money we can raise**

    Awesome idea Ines!

    You’re right about the twitter contest. It turned into a lot of work. Counting tweets, following up with the winners, etc. But, seeing the creativity that has come from it makes it all worth while.

    Thanks Daniel – let’s see how much we can raise 🙂

    I am so glad it was worth while – I can still remember that Friday night and you up counting tweets (like sheep almost in your sleep – LOL) – looking forward to meeting you in SF

    You have been so supportive of Mothers Fighting for Others in the past but this is such a great idea and kind offer. I hope the word gets out on ActiveRain as well. Did you write a post there?

    Thank you so much!

    I just saw the sale price. $300 can and will do so much for the girls. From school supplies to fresh fruit and vegetables, I know will make good use of it during headmutha’s trip to Africa if a few weeks. Every dollar is precious and so appreciated. Thank you so much!!!
