So the Ebay auction for the Fr. Jim School for Campus Ministry and Theology socks just ended… And I can’t tell you how floored I was with the bidding – with the final, winning bid topping $555.00
Thank you all so much for your thoughtfulness, generosity and support. I’m really beyond stunned with how this went and grateful for the winning bidder’s bid which will be a help with our fundraising efforts here!
Because of that, I’ve decided to auction off the other three items that were sent. A MUG; a LARGE T-SHIRT and a small NOTEBOOK. They can all be found here: http://www.ebay.com/usr/frjicher0?_trksid=p2047675.l2559
These auctions are the last three and will end next Monday – August 21st. And again, these all go to benefit THE NEWMAN CATHOLIC CENTER AT MONTCLAIR STATE UNIVERSITY not the Nasty Muppet, his handler, the Catholic Channel or myself…
I can’t tell you how much all of this support means… When a few weeks ago, on The Catholic Guy Show, the #NastyMuppet producer decided to make a “commercial” that basically mocked me – (you can hear it here: https://soundcloud.com/siriusxm-news-issues/fr-jim-school-for-theology-and-campus-ministry ) I never imagined that it would turn into something that the listeners would get this involved in first making a “logo” for the imaginary school, [which included on the crest, fortunately a Cross and a graduates cap but also a pair of glasses (poking fun at my new “dumb” glasses that I have succumbed to wearing in middle age) as well as a sock, recalling the times I foolishly forgot Lino would insist I de-shoe upon entering his rat-infested apartment for the show and was found to have holes in my socks on three separate occasions]
Let alone to start sending items like socks, notebooks, mugs, and T-shirts to me, Lino and Tyler… and certainly never imagined a pair of socks would raise a couple of hundred dollars to benefit the ministry I’m serving at…
You guys are truly the best.
So these will be the last three auctions! And thank you to those who even though they didn’t win the socks asked if they could still donate to Newman – absolutely… just go to our website www.MSUNEWMAN.com
