ETA: The auction is now closed! We raised USD 300, thank you to all who offered and made bids :)
EDIT: It looks like everybody who survived Thanksgiving and Black Friday is back now :)
Since the auction is just picking up speed, I move the end to next SUNDAY, 4 DECEMBER. Let's make this thing a success, our sister needs us!
Cancer belongs to the worst news a person could get.
bt_kady just had a hysterectomy, and they found tumors in the organs. Hopefully, the biopsy will show that it didn't spread yet. Nevertheless, Kathy has to expect a boatload of medical bills that she won't be able to pay. She has a Gofundme page where you can donate directly, or you can help by participating in the auction, and/or spreading the word among your friends.
This auction will start today, 19 November, and run until Wednesday, 30 November. The last date for the auction is not the date by which you need to deliver your work. It's just the last date for people to bid on offers. You can talk to your winner and decide on the details/due date.
How to make an offer:
Copy the text below, fill in the details, and post it in a comment. You are most welcome to offer fic, graphics of any sort (fanart, icons, wallpapers, gifs), fanvids, podfic and beta services. If there's anything I've forgotten to add, please let me know and I'll add it to the list. You may offer more than one fanwork; if so, please post each offer in a separate comment to make it easier to pick a winner for each offer. (Feel free to specify the length of the work and any other details you'd like to add.)
You may also offer a “buy it now” option. Bidders for buy-it-now prices don't have to wait until the end of the auction to make their donations or to discuss their requests with the person whose offer they've won. Please specify in the subject line if your offer is buy-it-now!
How to bid:
Please respond directly to the comment by the fanwork-maker. If someone has already bid on your person, you may reply to the previous bidder's comment and offer a larger amount. After the auction has ended, I will contact the winners and send you the info on how to make your donation. Once your donation is confirmed, your fanwork-maker will be informed. Please leave contact info so I can get in touch with you: you may leave your email ID in your comment or specify whether you'd like to be contacted via LJ PM instead.
Please do spread the word by linking to this post on your journal. Reposting the link will also be a huge help. To promote your offer on your journal and elsewhere, please link to your individual comment on this post.
If you have any questions, please post them under the first comment below.
Thank you all!
