CLOSED Make A Wish Foundation Charity Auction CLOSED
- United States
I was moved by her generosity and wanted to do what I could to help. I'll be sending her money via paypal to buy some gift cards, but I wanted to see if I could do more and go above and beyond. That's when I thought of the 'geek. I have games I'm not playing. They've some value in Math Trades, I'm sure. I'd much rather see If I can rally the community here though, to both support a great cause and if you're the winning bidder, get a cool game or two out of the deal.
All profit, minus BGG's cut goes to charity. I know there's probably going to be some doubters there, but if proof is required, it can be provided.
Please bid in increments of a $1. Cash bids only. Geekgold isn't much help to the kids.
Winning bidders will be responsible for costs of shipping. I will make every reasonable attempt to keep costs as low, using Flat Rate shipping, if possible.
Winner will have preference of shipping service (USPS, UPS) and can choose a faster ship method, but will still be responsible for the actual cost.
International bidders welcome, including Canada and Australia. Keep in mind that I will not be held accountable for shipping delays due to customs and remember you will incur a higher shipping cost as well.
All transactions will take place after the auction ends in the BGG Marketplace and BGG will get their 3% share.
I prefer Paypal, but Checks and Money Orders accepted. Note that games will not be shipped to persons paying by personal check until said check clears.
My goal here is to help CJ achieve her goal of $500 worth of gift cards. I believe she has a deadline of by the end of this month to do it. She may chime in to add to the info.
I've taken the liberty of allowing public additions to this list. If you want to add a game to this auction, feel free, but don't add unless you're putting the profit to charity. You're more than welcome to start your own auction to profit off of your own games on your own. You will be expected to adhere to standard operating procedure and list the transaction in the Marketplace and ensure BGG gets their 3%. All help is more than appreciated, but your items will be your responsibility. Geekmail me afterwards to arrange for the transfer of any funds to be donated.
EDIT: I have a prior commitment that will prevent me from ending this until sometime between MIDNITE and 1am Saturday morning. These extra few hours could be good for the final donation amount, but I also realize this may give folks a chance to be outbid on an item they might otherwise have won. Please have a maximum amount you're willing to spend on an item and take this extra time into consideration when monitoring this auction today/tonight. I apologize for the late and small, but nevertheless significant change, but it could not be helped.
Keep an eye out in the near future as we may do this again real soon to maybe give some folks the chance to rid themselves of some games they couldn't get rid of in the last Math Trade and help a good cause. CJ and I both have a few more games we're willing to part with and all help/donations in any future auction are greatly appreciated.
After the auction ends, I'll be calculating shipping and sending Marketplace links to the winners to complete the transaction. Your patience is appreciated while this takes place.
Thanks and good luck!
