Auction #31: Sticks and Stones Poster Signed by the Artist
Description: My poster "Sticks and Stones" was created to increase
tolerance and to help stop bullying. It is colorful and appealing created
originally with watercolor and torn paper. It has been available continuously
from 1978. Human Policy Press adapted the Sticks and Stones poster for the
Office of Civil Rights in the U.S. Department of Education in the fall of 1992,
and the Office of Civil Rights distributed 5,400 posters to elementary schools,
high schools as well as college campuses. This poster is no longer available.
Estimated Value: At least $100 (Note from Michelle: several years ago it was valued at $100 but there are so few left, it's probably worth more).
Minimum Bid: $60
Auction Ends: 12/8/2013 at 10:00 PM EST

* A note about last-minute bidding:
If you are used to online auctions that end at an exact, given second, please
know that the KidLitPhil auctions don’t work quite that way. Each auction ends
when I post the “Auction closed” comment. I do that when my computer turns to
10pm EST, but because I have multiple auctions to close at that time (also
because I am human) it will not be precisely at 10pm EST. At any rate, the
winning bid is the high bid before the Auction Closed comment, even if the time
on your computer reads slightly after 10:00. Thanks for understanding!
Winning bidder must donate the winning bid amount to a designated charity
organization and provide a copy of the receipt within three days of
For physical items, unless otherwise noted, donor pays standard shipping within
the U.S.; winning bidder pays for express shipping or for shipping outside the
