>A million pound smile


Mr Nice Guy has come up with a great idea – he’s auctioning off pixels in the Mona Lisa as a way of raising a million for reconstruction and aid in Haiti.

Over to Dave to explain


Over the next six to nine months I’ll be auctioning off pre-defined sections of a million pixel image of the Mona Lisa – probably the most famous image in the world!

This is an ambitious project designed to raise over one million dollars, the majority of which I’ll donate to a very good cause.

It’s not just about raising the money though, it’s also about providing something of value to those who use this site as readers and as winning bidders. You see, I’m not simply asking for money – I’m providing something in return.

For winning bidders, I’m providing a place where people can see who you are and what you do, and I’m doing it in a way that helps the search engines connect you with your customers or your audience. And this applies to you whether you’re a mommy blogger looking to increase your readership or a business owner trying to get your website higher up the search results.

For readers, I’m providing a place where you can get involved in nominating good causes and deciding which ones should benefit. A place where you can connect with genuine sites/services/products.
For both winning bidders and readers, I’m providing a place where people with a social conscience can get involved and feel they’re contributing to something worthwhile.


I own a little piece of the Mona Lisa (over on the far left, by the rocks), as do some other bloggers including Sandy from Baby Baby (she’s near her nose).

Dave is giving away a few sections to help raise awareness of this and to kick start the campaign, but you’ll need to be quick.

    >Thank you so much for this. Every little bit of word spreading helps, so I'm grateful you took the time to do it. I would have been here sooner to say thanks but the flu got the better of me and I'm only just starting to feel human again. Not quite, but nearly.
    Thanks again.

    PS I love the look of your site! 🙂
