Family sells everything they own on eBay

A Georgia family is putting a human face on the old saying that "desperate times call for desperate measures." They're trying to sell everything they own, except their house itself, on eBay, to help pay for their children's constant medical care.

The Peters have three children, two of them with serious medical issues. Last year, two-and-a-half-year-old Noah was diagnosed with autism. His older sister, 7-year-old Ayla, has a rare form of arthritis called Stills Disease.

No one seems interested in their personal belongings so far, so the Peters set up their own Web site. Now donations are pouring in from people all over the world.

Even though the Peters' situation is dire, they're planning on donating 10 percent of whatever they make to foundations benefiting autism and Stills Disease.
