The Alabama Farmers Federation donated the basket above to benefit the American Farm Bureau Foundation. To bid, visit www.BiddingForGood.com/agfoundation.

As several thousand Farm Bureau members from across the country gather in Nashville during the coming week, they will have the opportunity to raise funds for a great cause. The American Farm Bureau Foundation will be hosting its second annual online auction at www.BiddingForGood.com/agfoundation.

Farm Bureau members and non-members alike with a computer and online access can bid on more than 115 items of all types and sizes in a wide range of price points. The auction opens at 8:30 a.m. Jan. 7 and will run through Jan. 14 at 5:30 p.m..

More than 35 state Farm Bureaus donated special items from their states, including Omaha Beef from Nebraska, a maple syrup and pancake basket from New Hampshire, citrus gift baskets from Florida, a basket of local products from Alabama, wine from California and beautiful Indian jewelry from New Mexico. Additionally, corporate sponsors and partners donated high-ticket items with the farmer and rancher in mind, like the $5,000 seed credit from Monsanto.

The auction raised more than $32,000 last year and hopes are even higher for this year. Nationwide Insurance, in addition to donating four NASCAR race tickets, will match the donation level up to $15,000.

Anyone who has computer access and is willing to bid for a good cause is encouraged to bid high and bid often between Jan 7 and Jan. 14. Proceeds benefit the projects of the American Farm Bureau Foundation. The mission of the Foundation is to build awareness, understanding and a positive public perception of Agriculture through education.

Items up for bid include: an autographed guitar, a Las Vegas travel package, a two-day turkey hunt; an iPad Mini with cover; a Kindle Fire HD with $50 Amazon Gift Card; Chicago White Sox game tickets; autographed NFL helmets and footballs; embroidered Farm Bureau apparel; a Washington, D.C., hotel package, Visa gift cards and much, much more!

BiddingForGood.com is one of the most successful online auction organizations in the country dedicated to helping non-profit organizations raise funds.
