For Those Big-Ticket Items:;
You know those auctions your kids always have in elementary school or the ones your office frequently puts together, where you bid for signed memorabilia, electronic items and original prints? Think of as one giant elementary school auction: Type in the item you're looking for (we got 13 hits for the Nintendo Wii) and bid to win. Check the "Editors' Picks" section for really original ideas: A 2010 Super Bowl tickets package, a year's supply of ice cream, and a $1,000 Bloomingdale's Shopping Spree. Each purchase benefits the auctioneer's charity of choice. Still haven't found what you're looking for? Try to find auctions from high-profile groups.
