Tax Receipts!

Now that the auction's winding up, those desiring tax receipts can contact me for that. (Cate will likely update the Auction Header, but I'll post here as well.)

GeekMail me (landaras) if you want a receipt for tax purposes. Place the item number and whether you were donor or bidder in the subject line.

For example, the winning bidder on Item #317 would send a GeekMail with the subject line of "Bidder 317." In the body of the GeekMail I'll need your legal name, physical address, and a non-BGG email address. I will email you back a receipt.

I ask that those who donated multiple items and/or had multiple winning bids send separate GeekMails for each item. This will make my life much easier.

Questions regarding receipts (rather than mere requests for them) should be emailed to neil@wehneman.com. (I need GeekMails to tie userIDs to donors / bidders, but for all other purposes normal emails are better.)

Please give me a week or so to reply with your receipt, as I may have several hundred receipts to process.

Last January I posted an auction for Tom Vasel and his family to help with the unfortunate loss of his son, Jack. The generosity of the BGG community was amazing. Tom was touched and wanted to pay the kindness forward so he created the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund. He used some of the money that BGGers donated and spent the last year recruiting help to build this fund. The fund is a not-for-profit with a simple goal: raising and distributing funds to help gamers in their hour of need.

The fund has already helped one gamer, William Schlosser, who was knocked down by a wave when he was standing only ten feet out in the ocean at the Delaware shore. One of his vertebrae was crushed and his spinal cord was partially severed. He lost all movement in his hands but with intensive physical therapy he regained some functionality in his left hand. Physical therapy and hard work also allowed him to learn to walk again (using a walker).

While he was in the hospital, the Vasel fund was able to help purchase some adaptive technology to improve his quality of life and permit him more autonomy. What was this wonderful device? An iPad 2 (He uses it with an additional adaptive device and stylus provided by his rehab team).

His son, Erik, wrote "My dad is very appreciative of the iPad. It has already added so much to his life, considering all he has been through. He can once again communicate with friends/family, get online, do crossword puzzles, read books, and play Tichu and Carc. Every time I talk to him he tells me how great the iPad is and how much he uses it."

To put an item in this auction:

1) Scroll up to the top of the geeklist (above the first actual game entry, below this header).

2) Click on the 'Add Item' link

--------------------------------------------------

When the auction ends:

I have received many questions on how to process a donated item when this auction ends. Here is what I can think of so far:

1) The thread will close at 11:59 PM Central Time on November 15, 2011 (Jack Vasel's birthday). We use the clock on BoardGameGeek.com's servers.

2) I (or an assistant) will announce the winner for each item.

3) I (or an assistant) will email each winner with instructions for payment (the PayPal address is donate@jackvasel.org).

4) Once payment is received, I (or an assistant) will post that information on the item.

5) The generous person who donated the item and the recipient can then work out the shipping details. Please pay shipping costs to the person who donated the game/item.

6) All of the money will go to the Jack Vasel Fund for their charitable work.

Jack Vasel Memorial Fund Auction - November 1-15, 2011
Terms and Conditions

Welcome to the Terms and Conditions for the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund 2011
Auction! My name's Neil, and I'll be your host for this lovely stroll
through disclaimers and tax law.

1. General Logistics

The auction will open at 12:01 AM Central Time on November 1, 2011, and
close at 11:59 PM Central Time on November 15, 2011. We use the clock on
BoardGameGeek.com's servers.

Once the auction closes, a member of the Fund's Board of Directors (or one
of our appointed volunteers) will confirm in the GeekList item who the
winner is, as well as copy and paste in payment instructions.

A Director (or one of our appointed volunteers) will post again when
payment has been received by the Fund.

At that point, it will be up to the donor and bidder to contact each other
and coordinate shipment.

Unless we hear or state otherwise, we will be taking no further action
after we post that payment has been received.

2. All Donations Are Exactly That: DONATIONS

We have auctions going on here, but with rare exception, the Fund does not
own the products or supply the services offered. To get formal, the Fund
is merely the third-party beneficiary (hey, thanks!) of the winning
bidder’s contract with the person offering up the product or service.

We appreciate all donations to the Fund, and are confident that the related
transactions will proceed smoothly. If it doesn't, we're happy to step in,
as we are able, to try to get things resolved to everyone’s satisfaction.

However, there's a non-zero chance that the product or service provided
will not be as described in the GeekList, or the product or service donor
will disappear without holding up their end of the bargain. Even worse, if
the service offered was (for example) miniature painting, you might be out
your own property. The Fund, in our sole discretion, may refund donations
in such a circumstance.

3. We're Tax-Exempt, But We're Not Your Tax Advisor

The Fund is recognized by the IRS as a 501(c)(3) not-for-profit under U.S.
tax law.

This means that donations to the Fund are deductible to the extent
permitted by U.S. law. If you want to know what "the extent permitted by
U.S. law" is, you should probably consult your tax advisor.

I and/or the Fund are NOT your tax advisor. However, I will share that the
general guidelines are:

a) donations of services are not deductible,
b) donated products are deductible to their fair market value, and
c) monetary donations are lessened (for tax purposes) by the fair market
value of any products or services you receive as part of the donation.

However, I'll say it again: I'm not here to give you tax advice. Consult
your tax advisor if you have questions.

4. We're in the Business of Helping People, Not Determining Fair Market
Value


As noted above, "fair market value" is part of the tax deduction calculus.
However, the Fund is not in the business of determining "fair market
value."

For most of the games, you can determine fair market value from MSRP,
Amazon.com, or a number of other means. For services, out-of-print games,
and other non-standard stuff, fair market value is a bit trickier.

In no event will the Fund make a determination as to what fair market value
is, or how you should determine it. That matter is between you, your tax
advisor (which I might have mentioned isn't us), and the IRS.

5. We'll Be Happy To Give You a Receipt...Once the Auction is Over

We are going to be very busy for the next month or so with running the
auction and trying to ensure all transactions flow as smoothly as possible.

If you'd like a receipt for your taxes or other purposes, please email us
at cate@jackvasel.org once the auction is OVER.

For donors of products:

Do not email us when you post your product.
Do not email us when your product has a winning bidder.
Do not email us when the Fund receives the donation for the product.
Do not email us when you ship the product.
Email us when the auction is over.

For donors of services:

Do not email us for a receipt, as services do not qualify for tax
deduction. (Sorry, take that up with the IRS, not us.)

For bidders:

Do not email us when you make your bid.
Do not email us when you win the auction.
Do not email us when you make the donation for the product.
Do not email us when you receive the product.
Email us when the auction is over.

6. Website Credit / Supporter Badges

As a way to say thank you to supporters, the Fund does offer supporter
badges and website credit to those who contribute to the Fund. The level
of supporter badge depends upon the contribution to the Fund.

For those who contribute money outside of an auction, it's pretty simple to
determine their contribution. What they donated is what they contributed.

When people donate a product or service, or bid on a product or service,
the calculation is just a little trickier. For ease of calculation, we
credit half of the cash realized by the Fund (before PayPal fees) to the
winning bidder, and half to the donor of the product or service.

Note that this 50/50 split is for ease of calculation, and is NOT a
determination of fair market value. (Remember: we do not express opinions
on fair market value.)

$200 in contribution for 2011 will earn you Founding Sponsor status, which
never expires.

$100 in contribution for 2011 will earn you Business Sponsor status for
2011. Those who contribute $100 during the auction itself can choose to
have that credit count for 2012 instead of 2011.

$10 in contribution for 2011 will earn you Personal Sponsor status for
2011. Those who contribute $10 during the auction itself can choose to
have that credit count for 2012 instead of 2011. Business entities (such
as LLCs or partnerships) are ineligible for Personal Sponsor status.

7. Who's In Charge Here?

I'm sure you have questions. We likely have answers.

However, you're more likely to get the right answer, and get it quickly, if
you contact the right person. Here's how we're splitting up responsibility
between some of the Directors of the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund.

Do you have a publicity-related question, or a question regarding the Fund
that isn't directly tied to the operation of this auction? Contact Tom
Vasel at tomvasel@gmail.com.

Do you have a logistical or operational question regarding this auction,
that doesn't clearly fall into another Director's domain? Contact Cate:

Do you have a question regarding payments for products or services relating
to this auction? Contact John Kaufeld at CONTACT.

Do you have a question regarding tax implications or a dispute / concern
between bidder and donor? Contact Neil Wehneman at neil@wehneman.com.

DO NOT ASSUME that posting to a GeekList item, or as a comment to the
GeekList as a whole, will get the message in front of the right person. We
have many eclectic hobbies (we are all geeks, after all), but alas, reading
every comment on every item is not one of these eclectic hobbies.

--------------------------------------------------------------

I received this touching letter after the Vasel Fund sent some assistance to fellow gamer Patrick Hoier and his family. The timing was important because they have no winter coats.


Cate:

I do not even know how to properly begin an e-mail of this type, I am at a loss for words and can only begin it with a very humble and understated "thank you".

My brother Brian Hoier has informed me that he submitted my family's information to your foundation for assistance, and that you have accepted my family's plight with your overwhelming support. I cannot begin to explain how much this means to us, and how this gift will affect our family as we attempt to recover from our losses.

On October 10th, at 2 am, our lives were turned upside down. My daughter had obtained a candle from a pioneer celebration at a local state park. Before she went to bed, she thought it would be neat to read by candle light as her favorite characters did in some of her books. It was an innocent act in itself; however, she quickly fell asleep. She woke to her room wall being totally consumed by a fire that was feeding off the many books and games that she kept in her room. Luckily, she was able to escape out her window and run to the neighbors house to get help. The neighbors were able to wake my wife and I up, and we were able to quickly evacuate all of our children safely from the house (using the fiire escape plan my oldest son had made the month before). Moments after we evacuated the house, the windows of my daughter's room blew out and the fire overtook the front rooms. The fire departments quickly responded and eventually put the flames out after 15 minutes of their arrival (approximately 25 or more minutes after the fire started). The fire was contained to the front of the house; however, the somke damage was extensive and melted/burned most of our belongings. Even our items that were in the small family room in the basement were ruined by water damage (as it was directly under my daughter's room).

After the fire was extinguished, the fire department let us back into the house to attempt to salvage any item we needed immediately. The scene of the damage was overwhelming and brought tears to my eyes. Everything we owned was destroyed. We tried to salvage some clothes, but most of these had to be disposed of later due to not being able to remove the scent of smoke from the items. My wife and 2 daughters are asthmatic and we cannot keep any items with the smoke scent. All of their medications were destroyed as well. My childrens toys and games were all lost. All of the possesions we tried to salvage fit easily in the very back of our minivan's storage space. Our family of 7 was effectively homeless.

Our insurance agency was able to put us up into a hotel room for a couple of weeks; however, with a family of 7, this was a tight fit. They eventually found a house to rent for us; however, the down payment for the rent and items are taken out of any fire settlement we receive. We have no furniture of our own, and all of our items need to be replaced. As of right now, we are thankful to be safe, healthy, and with each other.

We have tried to replace some simple items with the funds we have available, and have tried to focus on replacing our children's favorite toys (as play is very important for children to work through their fears and anxiety). We bought my four year old some small "My Little Ponies", and they became her prized possessions. She carried them everywhere we went (even to dinner or stores), never letting them out of her sight. She would simply explain to others that "this is all I have". It is difficult to watch a four year old little girl try to make sense of the world when everything she trusted in was turned upside down.

We have purchased a few other items, but we are now at the mercy of our insurance agency. We have had quite a few clothes donated, but most were from individuals that are cleariing out their summer/fall wardrobes. We are trying to purchase more winter clothes. We live simply, and I am the sole wage earner for our family.

I am sorry for being so long winded in this e-mail, but it is hard for me to admit or even accept help from anyone. I am usually the one donating or working anonymously behind the scenes to help others. Now, I am the one in need and it is very humbling and humiliating.

The support offered by your founation overwhelmed me, and I was overcome with emotion. I cannot evenbegin to tell you how far this will go to helping my family as we begin to recover from our losses. I wish there was some way I could find to repay you, or to even let you know how much this all means to us. I will be sending you a picture of my beautiful family tomorow, and pictures of the damage it caused to our home so that you can see how your foundations asistance will help us recover.

Thank you so much again, and God Bless each and every member of the foundation.

Sincerely:
Patrick, Michelle, Megan (13), Ethan (11), Nicholas (8), Erin (7) and Sabrina (4) Hoier.

Promo packs sold in the Geek Store; but unfortunately were only made available in random distribution. As a result, making it difficult and expensive to be able to get an entire set. Well not any more. Here's your chance to get the complete set in one easy shot.

Plus I'll ship anywhere in the world for free cool

The game is in fantastic condition and has only been played a couple of times. I had heard wonderful things about this, but it never worked for me, I don't understand the appeal. For two players I'd much rather play Lost Cities or Jambo.

Shipping: Add $5 to your donated total for shipping within the US, outside the US contact me and we will work soemthing out.

Note: We can combine shipping for my items. I'll do the highest quoted shipping price plus $2 per game after that. All of my shipping in the US will be donated to the Jack Vassel Memorial Fund.

Starting bid $5

This is the 2006 edition. In great condition. I like this game, but don't get it to the table very often, I think it has only been played three times. I'd rather see it go to a good cause.

Shipping: Add $12 to your donation total for the US, outside the US contact me and we will work something out.

Note: We can combine shipping for my items. I'll do the highest quoted shipping price plus $2 per game after that. All of my shipping in the US will be donated to the Jack Vassel Memorial Fund.

Minimum bid: $40. Lets bring some money in for this one!

Plus BattleLore: Epic BattleLore. Both are in fantastic condition. I'll have to check when I get home, but I don't believe either one has been opened.

Shipping: Within the US, add $10 to your donated total. For outside the US, contact me and we will work something out.

Starting bid: $20

Note: We can combine shipping for my items. I'll do the highest quoted shipping price plus $2 per item won after that. All of my shipping in the US will be donated to the Jack Vassel Memorial Fund.

$100 gift certificate to www.CoolStuffInc.com

Edited to change the item from the placehold game Claustrophobia to the customary entry for a gift certificate and to insert the link to the CSI site.

This auction is for a piece of original artwork from Knights of the Dinner Table Illustrated artists Brian and Brendon Fraim.



I don't know whether this piece was ever even published, so it may be that you will have the only non digital copy in existence! I acquired this directly from the artists at a comiccon some years ago and have enjoyed having it. It is black and white ink on bristol board. I had it framed myself. There is some left over label on the glass of the frame, but nothing that a little fingernail scratching won't get off.

Please let me know if you have any questions about the piece.

Condition New in frame
Starting Bid $25
Shipping I'll cover $10 of whatever final shipping costs are to anywhere

This is a brand new copy of the cooperative comic-book card game Sentinels of the Multiverse, straight from those guys at Greater Than Games. The winner of this auction can opt for the copy to be signed by the designers, but we will have to open a portion of the shrink wrap to do so. Up to the winner.



This auction also comes with a copy of The Young Legacy Promo Card!

These are usually exclusive to cons and Kickstarter rewards and are becoming more and more rare, as they will not be reprinted in this form once the original print run is exhausted.



Box Condition:
New in Shrink

Game Condition:
New in Shrink

Version/Language Info:
Greater Than Games, LLC - First Edition/English.


Greater Than Games will pay shipping to anywhere in the USA. First $10 elsewhere.

---

UPDATE!!!

Since our Kickstarter just passed $20k, that means we're making a set of premium HP and Damage Tracking cards for everyone who pledges on the Kickstarter. However! We're also going to throw in those 21 Tracking Cards with this auction! You won't get them until March, as that's when they'll be printed (as they're part of the print run of the Rook City expansion) but you will get them! They're just a free thing I'm tossing in along with this auction, because I think they're awesome, and I KNOW this auction is awesome.

To sum up: the winner of this auction will get a set of 21 HP and Damage Tracker cards as well. Because we're cool like that.

This is NOT for the game "Hey Taxi!" this is for:

Transportation to and from Gen Con 2012.
Gen Con is August 16-19, 2012

I will pick up the winner and up to two (2) other people and take them to their hotel.

This can be from the airport, bus station, or other location within 40 miles of zip code 46225. {See green-shaded area on map below} That's right, if you live somewhat close Indy but don't want to mess with parking your car downtown, I'll come get you. Hotel accommodations are up to you during the convention, but at the beginning and end of your convention, I've got you covered.

Whenever you need to go back home, I will take you back to the airport, bus station or other location from either your hotel or the convention center (wherever you happen to be when you need to leave).


Details about me: I live and work in Indianapolis. I work downtown a few blocks from the convention center. I have a reliable sedan with ample trunk space for your luggage and loot. My job has reasonably flexible hours so I am able to work around lots of different schedules. I have full coverage insurance and a valid Indiana driver's license.

I like to attend Gen Con events as well, so that I can schedule events that do not interfere with this transport service, please keep the lines of communication open as your travel plans are worked out.

Other questions, please don't hesitate to GM me.

So this year I will offer up my painting services for 12 minis again. The user will be responsible for shipping them to me at Zip Code 55912. I will ship them back on my dime.

Here are some recent examples of my work:




and some of the minis I did for last year's winner:



If you have any questions, feel free to post them in the comments here or geekmail me.

Thanks!

EDIT: Also, last year people would sometimes post what they were thinking of getting painted with their bid, so feel free to post that with your bid. It is kind of interesting to see what people are thinking about.
