**CLOSED** Donations can still be sent in directly to the school or to Ryan!

I will GeekMail the winning bidders regarding payment options as soon as I can. Thank you everyone!


See the following information as I am running this benefit auction to help the families of three children at the school of the BGG user quoted below, and he knows better than I the complete situation. Any questions regarding the families or direct donations should be sent to Ryan, but I will handle all the work regarding the auction except where you should speak directly with the generous BGG user who has donated an item you are interested in.

Hi everyone. Some of you know that I run a board game club at a school. I am also the School Guidance Counselor and the Homeless Liaison at the same school.

Recently, we have had 3 families at my school lose everything they own to house fires. Here is a news article that mentions some details of one of the families: http://www.mlive.com/news/flint/index.ssf/2011/12/flint_fami...

I am writing this here because I know that many people here are kind and some of you may have the desire to donate. If you have an annual Christmas donation recipient, I do not want to detract from that. But if you don't usually give around the holidays, or if you have been thinking a way of making the world a better place, please consider this.

Any donations can be sent to my school, GBA (address is at the bottom of the linked page) care of me, Ryan. If you would like to specify a family, feel free to, otherwise I will separate and divide gifts as we have been doing all week.

So here are the details:

Family 1: Mom & Dad, 4 Boys (age: 13 ,11, 9 & 2 months)

Family 2: Mom & Dad 2 Girls (age 9 & 7) 2 Boys (age 4 & 2)

Family 3: Mom & Girl (12 yrs)

And I know how positive you all are, even if you wanted to send a New Years greeting from across the world, to know that someone that you don't know is thinking of and praying for you could be comforting.

Edit: These were three separate fires in the general Flint, MI area. All of these kids (of age) go to my school.


If you would like to offer an item for donation, click on "Add Item" and, following the examples from other listed items, proceed with our eternal gratitude. Any questions? Feel free to GeekMail me. Good luck bidding!

----------
Anyone who donates will receive a letter from the school thanking them for the amount they wound up donating. This is so that people can feel confident that their money is in fact going where it is supposed to go. You people are awesome! Thank you so much!
----------

This auction will end on Wednesday, December 28, sometime in the evening CST unless I forget in which case just as soon as I remember! I do plan on ending it whenever I go to bed on the 28th.

I'd like to contribute this game to the auction. It is used. I've played it just a couple times. Everything is present, and in good shape.

I will pay the postage to anywhere in the USA or Canada, and cover the first $20 towards anywhere else. Payment will not go to me! Instead you will direct payment to

New in Shrink!

I got a boxed lot of stuff from this company and this is one of the better games.. but I have more copies than one person needs. Card resolved direct combat + tile laying + area control + cyberpunk/anime feel.

Good game.

I will also end my auction on Dec 28th. All proceed will be donated directly to my school's fund to assist the 3 fire families.

Free shipping in ConUS, I pay first $5 elsewhere.

I will combine shipping if requested.

This seems like a good disposition of one of my copies of Buffy...
Box has some shelf wear, but game is complete in excellent condition.
Will ship free in the US. If anyone outside the US is interested, please contact me, and I'll get it in a shipping box and figure out what it will cost.

EDIT: oh, yeah, and I'll pay the first $15 of whatever it costs internationally.

This Spiel Des Jahres winner is a cousin to Dixit or Cluzzle.

This particular one was from my office but has never seen play. Time to clear it from my shelf. It has been opened but never played.

The only thing making it not new other than lacking the shrink wrap is the stamp I put on it indicating it belonged to my counseling office which I will carefully cross through and initial.

I will pay for shipping in the US and first $5 to ship internationally.

Enjoy!

Practically new. We played it once or twice, and it's a great game. We just have so many great games that it doesn't hit the table all that often. I'd rather support these families with the donation of the game than hold on to it just in case.

Come on, people. Bid high. Offer a game of your own to help out. These families need our help.

Buyer to pay shipping from 65711.
