I'm happy to combine multiple auctions for a single total, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We've reached the most exciting part of our Charity Auction for Theatregirl7299! This final week is all about the bidding! Some of you have been bidding, and then some of you have already launched your counter-bids!
Be sure to check all the way through the listings—there are a LOT of different things being offered! Crocheted goods, stamped metal jewelry, fabric snack bags, beaded jewelry, and handmade objet d'art join fiction and art offers! I can't even list the writers and artists who are offering their talents, because there are SO MANY! SO browse browse browse, and let your f-list/friends/tweet list/tumblr know what's up too! Feature your own offers if you're a seller as well!
A note about counter-bidding: be sure to comment to the bid you are surpassing, so that the prior bidder knows and we can follow the progression of the bid. Thank you!
UPDATE AND PAYMENT INSTRUCTIONS
We're super excited by all the wonderful auctions y'all are offering, as well as the busy bidding!!! Thank you so much!!
We're mid-way through the second week, so and I want to let you know what to expect and answer a couple of questions.
Caps on fic auctions are for word count, not bids. If I am offering 6K words, that's going to be the top limit of words I guarantee to write, but the money can still go up. So if there's a bid for $60, that person can be outbid by a bid of $70, but the fic remains at 6K.
No more offers can be posted after Sunday 9/29 midnight EST. The final week will be for bidding only. We want to give people a chance to peruse all the offers and decide what to spend their money on.
Payment: You can make your payment to EITHER the Go Fund Me OR to Milana's Paypal account at email@example.com.
Once payment has been made, send a screen shot (blurring or blacking out any sensitive information) to either firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com
Ash and I will check off that you have concluded your payment and notify your seller that they are now free to create for you, or ship your item to you.
If you have any remaining questions, shoot us a comment! Please keep spreading the word and have fun with the rest of the auction!

theatregirl7299 is a writer and a beta reader that many of you already know from the Supernatural and White Collar fandoms. She is a wonderfully kind and helpful person, and a positive presence in our fandom world. Unfortunately, she recently experienced an injury which ultimately led to one of her feet being amputated. Her significant medical bills from surgery and rehab are compounded by her having been in the middle of moving cross-country. You can read about these financial hardships in more detail at her Go Fund Me page.
This auction will start immediately and run until Monday, October 7th. Bidding will open on Monday, September 23. (One week for posting auctions and two weeks for bidding). 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.
Please help spread the word and promote this auction on LJ, DW, Twitter, and Tumblr.
How to make an offer:
YOU CAN OFFER AUCTIONS IN ANY AND ALL FANDOMS OR ORIGINAL WORK.
Copy the text in the box 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, podfics, and beta services. You may also offer crafts: jewelry, knitting/crocheting, sewing, calligraphy, and so on. You can offer items you've already made or items that will be made on commission. Please be specific, and for crafts, try to include a thumbnail of your work. You may offer any quantity you choose; if so, please add the relevant details to your form. E.g. you may choose to offer two sets of ten icons each; in this case, the two highest bidders on your thread will both be the winners. (Feel free to specify the length of the work and any other details you'd like to add.) If you offer different types of things, say one fic and one wallpaper, please make separate posts for each item.
How to bid:
Please respond directly to the comment by the fanwork-maker. If someone has already bid on your item, you may reply to the previous bidder's comment and offer a larger amount. On Tuesday, October 8th, the mods will contact the winners and send you the info on how to make your donation. Once your donation is confirmed (receipt or screen shot), 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 spread the word by linking to this post on your journal. You can also donate directly to theatregirl7299's Go Fund Me if you'd prefer not to participate in the auction. Reposting the GFM link will also be a HUGE help. To promote your own particular offer on your journal and elsewhere, feel free to link to your individual comment on this post.
If you have any questions, please post them under the FIRST comment below. Please reserve that comment for questions only.
