How the Whole Thing Works

What Can I Do?

Well, there are two main ways to take part in this auction: Offerer and Bidder.

  • Offerer - The offerer places his or her items up for auction, with a starting bid and the charity they want the winning bid to go to, then they just have to make sure to follow through on it once the auction is over.
  • Bidder - The bidder is the person who is looking to donate money to a cause, and when they do it here they get a nifty little reward. All the bidder has to do is browse through the offerings and place bids, and be able to donate the winning amount once the auction ends.


What can I offer?

You can offer whatever it is that you have available to offer: your cooking skills, your clothing making skills, your art and writing skills. Fanfiction, regular fiction, art, macros, videos, food, hand made jewelry, clothing. Really, the sky is the limit! 


How does it work?

It's actually pretty simple, and we owe a ton of kudos to [info]help_haiti for offering us such a wonderful example. There will be different sections of the auction, e.g. fiction, art, food related, etc, in which offerers can put up their items. When the auction ends the winning bids are sent directly to the agreed upon organization/charity. The winning bidder will then forward their donation receipt to the offerer whose bid they won, or to the mod email. We'll set up a special post for commenting on confirmed bids, and once the confirmation deadline is up we'll post an entry for commenting on winning bids that haven't been confirmed.


Questions?

Well ask away! We're eager to help!
