2022 Average Hunter St. Jude Auction

Leave a comment

This is a request for a donation for an auction in March 2022 benefiting St. Jude Children’s Hospital held online at BidsForTheKids.com.
The Average Hunter St. Jude Auction is a yearly auction hosted online every March for the sole purpose of raising money for St. Jude. Filled with items from the hunting, fishing, automotive, and all of the outdoors industry, this auction draws an audience and bidders from all over North America via the @averagehunter social following covering nearly 200,000 followers as well as paid advertising and promoting the sponsors via their social media.  There are many benefits to you donating for this cause that I can offer you. With your response, I can give you more information and we can discuss what kind of donation, big or small, you would like to make.
What I am requesting is a product donation to be added to the auction. I’d like to get at least a $50 in retail donation from you so you can have your own page highlighting your products and brand. If you don’t want to donate that much, no problem, I will still add your information and brand to an auction, it will just be combined with other similar (non-competitive) products. 

Donation Packages:
Larger high-end donations will get their own raffle with extra advertising.

Platinum Donor: For those who want to donate over $300 in products, then your brand’s logo will be highlighted on the many advertising banners created that will be used to promote this auction. You will also get a platinum sponsor banner on your featured auction image as well as listed as a Platinum sponsor on the site.
Gold Donor: Over $150 in donations will get your logo streaming on the website and a gold sponsor banner on your featured auction image. 
Auction listings will be added to the website as soon as they are confirmed. So your product and brand will get maximum exposure the sooner you are able to confirm your donation.

As this is an unfunded event, all the proceeds of the auction will also pay for the shipping of the items to the winners which takes away from the funds that we would be able to donate. Therefore I make one request from the sponsors of this event. If possible, I request the physical donation be held by the sponsor until after the auction to where the item will be sent to the winner. This will save a great number of funds that can be used to help a child. But, if you would rather ship it to me now, I will gladly take care of the rest.  If you want to donate and hold the items, I will just need a link to the item and retail value.

Documentation is available providing all non-profit 501c3 information for your tax needs.
Please review the website at BidsForTheKids.com and look over the Past Auctions in the tab at the top of the page to see what all have been donated in the past. 

Thank you for your support! Together, let’s do all we can to help the kids of St. Jude!  

I look forward to your response. Feel free to call if you have any questions.

Statistician Rethinks Gun Control After Digging into the Data


“Before I started researching gun deaths, gun-control policy used to frustrate me. I wished the National Rifle Association would stop blocking common-sense gun-control reforms such as banning assault weapons, restricting silencers, shrinking magazine sizes and all the other measures that could make guns less deadly.

Then, my colleagues and I at FiveThirtyEight spent three months analyzing all 33,000 lives ended by guns each year in the United States, and I wound up frustrated in a whole new way. We looked at what interventions might have saved those people, and the case for the policies I’d lobbied for crumbled when I examined the evidence.”

“A reduction in gun deaths is most likely to come from finding smaller chances for victories and expanding those solutions as much as possible,” Libresco writes. “We save lives by focusing on a range of tactics to protect the different kinds of potential victims and reforming potential killers, not from sweeping bans focused on the guns themselves.”

School Shooting Data

1 Comment

The U.S. Education Department reported “nearly 240 schools … reported at least 1 incident involving a school-related shooting.” But NPR reached out to every one of those schools repeatedly over the course of three months and found that more than two-thirds of these reported incidents never happened. Child Trends, a nonpartisan nonprofit research organization, assisted NPR in analyzing data from the government’s Civil Rights Data Collection.
“We were able to confirm just 11 reported incidents, either directly with schools or through media reports.
In 161 cases, schools or districts attested that no incident took place or couldn’t confirm one. In at least four cases, we found, something did happen, but it didn’t meet the government’s parameters for a shooting. About a quarter of schools didn’t respond to our inquiries.”
