I'm sure that concentrating on online auctions has been difficult for everyone over the past two weeks. It is heartening to see how individuals have pitched in to help out in relief efforts after the recent tragic events.

As of September 19th, the American Red Cross said it had received over $128 million, with $36.9 million of that coming through its Web site, according to a CNN article http://www.cnn.com/2001/COMMUNITY/09/19/blaul/index.html.

The online auction community in particular has pulled together. At the end of this issue, I've included a special report on how it has responded to aid in the relief efforts.

Wishing you peace and good health,

Ina Steiner, Editor email: ina@auctionbytes.com
