RecommendEaster Hope Charity Auction (part 2) games for you and benefit for children
Please read the details below before bidding.
HOW IT WILL WORK:
I conducted an auction in February https://www.boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/186836/valentine-love... that raised money for three different charities that helped children. There are more games that I am not playing and would love to pass on to you while using the money you spend for it on charity of your choice below. Thus, the auction will run similar to the last auction I had.
There are 4 charities (Light for Japan, Compassion International, International Justice Mission, Show Hope) that you can donate to with your winning bid listed below. Just list which charity you would like me to use the money you used for your bid to give to. Otherwise, I will choose one of the three.
INFO ABOUT LIGHT FOR JAPAN:
My sister and brother in law are going to Japan. They will be reaching out in love to the young people of Japan through being involved in a cafe. Additionally, they will help the local Japanese people to create their own music of worship that fits their own culture. All their time and energy they could spend working will be spent on these endeavors so they need financial support to make this all happen. They would appreciate your generous support.
INFO ABOUT COMPASSION INTERNATIONAL:
Compassion International's vision is to release children from physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual poverty. Compassion International addresses the lie that is at the heart of poverty which is that:
”Life holds nothing for me”
“I don’t count”
“No one can help me”
“I am garbage”
“I don’t matter”
Compassion International gives hope through providing and empowering children; letting them know that they matter and are precious. The organization is top-notch in regards to how they handle their finances and is rated consistent at the top by charity watch dog organizations.

Funds raised for this will be towards continuing the sponsorship of the last child we sponsored from the last charity auction as we raised enough for only a few months of sponsorship.
INFO ABOUT INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION (IJM):
- What if you called the police and no one came to help?
- What if there was no way to get justice if someone tried to harm you or your children?
- What if violent criminals in your neighborhood had no fear at all of being stopped or caught?
For most people in the developing world this is everyday life...
IJM mobilizes lawyers, social workers, investigators, community activists and other professionals to rescue victims, bringing criminals to justice, restoring survivors, and strengthening justice systems. IJM fights against slavery, sex trafficking, sexual violence, police brutality, property grabbing, and citizens rights abuse.

INFO ABOUT SHOW HOPE
Show Hope is a non-profit charitable organization that provides for orphans in a six story caring facility in China. They also offer grants to families who have a heart to take in orphan children but who cannot afford it.

SHIPPING: Shipping is from 29072 (Lexington, SC) USPS flat rate (with tracking) and paid by the winner. I can also ship with other options with USPS if you like. Combine shipping can be provided for multiple games purchased so to reduce shipping cost. Will only ship to US (if you are in Canada GM me and we can discuss about possible shipping). There will be 3% discount for local pickup and I will accept cash for local pickup.
If your BINs add up to $100 shipping is free.
BIDDING: All bids must be in whole dollars. The starting bid is the minimum I will accept for a game. However, I may consider if you bid lower than the starting bid if you purchase more than one game. Geekmail me if you want to make an offer for a bunch of games.
GAMES WITH NO BIN: Some games have no BIN on them because they are combined with other games as a BIN package. If they are BINed by someone buying the package then the game will no longer be in the auction even though it has a bid on it. If you want to package a bunch of games together for BIN that are not bunched together just GM me and we can figure something out.
PAYMENT: All transactions will be done via Paypal and through BGG Marketplace so that BGG will get its 3% commission. Payment must be made within 72 hours.
FREE PROMO/GAME: Whoever BIN's can get a free game/promo (first BIN first serve!)
- Among the Stars: Section Seal

DEALS: Feel free to geekmail me if you want to buy a bunch of games and maybe we can make a deal.
Sunday, April 5th at 9pm Eastern time. If there is a bid for an item an hour before the auction ends the time for the end of that item will be extended for another hour and so on. This is to prevent sniping.
