Wingspan Custom Box and Expansion Charity Auction
- Jamey StegmaierUnited States
From 2013-2018, we raised a total of $40,934 for 52 different charities selected by some of our favorite bloggers, podcasters, and video creators. We're back this year to auction off 11 custom, signed versions of Wingspan and the new Wingspan expansion.
The winning bidder of each auction will receive (in early December):
--1 copy of Wingspan with a custom box featuring your 5 favorite birds (select from any bird illustration in the game or expansion)
--each copy of Wingspan will be signed by designer Elizabeth Hargrave
--1 copy of the new Wingspan European expansion
--1 set of Wingspan component upgrades from Meeplesource (shipped separately)
--Free shipping anywhere in the world from St. Louis
Fulfillrite, a Kickstarter fulfillment service, has generously offered to match the highest winning bid among the auctions (up to $2,000) to double that charitable contribution. In addition, Stonemaier Games will match the winning bid for each of the other auctions (up to $500 each).
You can also participate without bidding. Just fill out our 2019 demographic survey while the auction is live, and we'll donate $1 to the Cornell Lab of Ornithology for each completed survey (unique users). For Kickstarter creators, if you sign up to use Fulfillrite during the charity auction, Fulfillrite will do one of the following (your choice): credit the creator $100 or donate $100 to their favorite charity in this auction.
Here's how it works:
This Geeklist features 11 separate auctions. Each auction is attributed to an amazing blog, podcast, or video channel and their charity of choice.
The auctions will begin on Wednesday, November 6 and will end on Friday, November 8 at 11:00 am CST. Payments will be submitted to us through the BGG marketplace (PayPal) after the auctions close, and then we'll proceed to digitally print the special Wingspan boxes.
--Bidding starts at $1. Bids must increase in increments of at least $1 USD. You may not be the highest bidder on more than 1 auction. To discourage final-hour sniping, in the final hour of the auction, bids must increase in increments of at least $25.
--Each auction will have 1 winner. Thus there will be 11 winners.
--The content creator whose auction garners the most thumbs will receive a copy of the Wingspan expansion. So you can support your favorite media creator(s) without even bidding!
--200% of all winning bids (minus BGG processing fees) will go to the charities selected by these media creators thanks to the matching gifts.
--Winning bidders will have 3 days to pay; after that we'll revert to the second-highest bidder.
Thank you for supporting these amazing charities and talented content creators!
