1. Thank you all so much for your generosity and your wonderful, wonderful donations of time, money, and support. I can't tell you how much this auction has taught me.
2. Special thank you to [personal profile] giandujakiss for her patience and help.
3. I'm calling all debts as paid and trusting that those of you who have yet to fulfill your donation will do so on your own honor.
4. I'm looking to make this a yearly event so some time before the winter holidays I will be taking suggestions for a new charity to support. I would like it to be something international so that the monies can go toward the locality of the bidder...

Let me know also if there's anything you think I could do next time. I'm working on getting the donation portion smoothed out so there's no confusion there.

Again, thanks so much for all that you've done. We had one heck of a first run.... more than $5,000! :)

1. Thanks so much to all of our bidders and creators for all of their hard work and generosity of time and money. We've donated $3,321.37 thus far!
2. I'm still waiting on quite a few confirmations. If you've already sent in your donation but don't see your name in the following list, please contact me privately and I'll confirm your donation.
3. I'll be out of town for the next several days so if it takes me some time to respond to you or update your bid please be patient.
4. I sent out messages for Art/Graphics, Fanfic, and Handmade items to check on donation confirmations. If your account doesn't allow for private messaging I left a comment on the bid. I'll go through the other posts some time this week. If you want to make a preemptive strike you can email me your donation confirmation and I'll update the list. (ceem.fandom at gmail)

Thus far we've collected $2,627.37 (+/- for people who have added extra donations on their own) for Planned Parenthood and people are still sending in confirmations and donations. Bidders make sure to check in with your winning bids and forward them the confirmation. There are still 47 of you who I haven't heard from or your winning bids haven't contacted me to let me know that you've donated. If you have a circumstance that's going to make it impossible for you to donate or be an extended period of time, please contact me.

Updated confirmations as of right now.

If you've been marked with Partial Confirmation it just means that people are still sending me information and I haven't heard from all of your winning bids yet. If you feel this is in error, comment here or email me at ceem.fandom at gmail

If you're not sure how many items you've won or how much you owe exactly I have a handy spreadsheet for just that purpose. You can reply here, DM me, or email me at ceem.fandom at gmail and I'll send you your bidding summary.

I can't believe you guys! You are so freakin' awesome.

We have a grand total of promised bids amounting to a total of

$5,127.37

Thanks so much to the people who have already submitted your donations. (y'all are QUICK!)
bdr28, cannedebonbon, eagle-of-idiocy.livejournal.com, fahrbotdrusilla, harper-m.livejournal.com, orbiting_saturn, tebtosca, the_rant_girl

If you're not on that list, I don't have anything from the person you bid on.

For those who aren't sure how the bidding process goes.

1. All winning bidders should already have been notified of their wins.
2. Bidders are responsible for making their donation to Planned Parenthood and providing their information to the recipients of their winning bids. If you win more than one item please just add up all of your winning bids and donate that total amount to the charity rather than several small ones. (The charity receives more money this way.)
3. Once the author/vidder/etc receives the confirmation of donation from the bidder, the author/vidder/etc needs to comment back on the offering post.

Easy peasy. If you have questions, let me know.

EDIT: Apparently some of you are having issues donating. This from a fellow bidder: "...credit card fraudsters often make small donations to charitable organizations first to check if a credit card works, so under a certain amount, they routinely decline the payment and check back with the card owner first." So check with your credit card to make sure they know it is you if you're having troubles.

Bidding is live until 11:30pm EST February 21

No more artist/author/vidder/podfic reader/crafter/etc. offers will be accepted for this auction. Any offers that are added to the auction after this time will be deleted. (Sorry, there's got to be an end to this thing sometime...)

After bids are closed please give me 24 hours to go through the community and notify high bidders of their wins and the amounts. After that time bidders are responsible for making their donation to Planned Parenthood and providing their information to the recipients of their winning bids. If you win more than one item please just add up all of your winning bids and donate that total amount to the charity rather than several small ones. (The charity receives more money this way.) Once the author/vidder/etc receives the confirmation of donation, please comment back on the post letting me know so that I can keep track of who has/has not donated.

If you have any questions about auction procedures, please ask here.

In just under five hours bidding goes live and all chances to offer your amazing goods and talents will sadly come to an end.

SO get those last minute offers up and help us raise some funds for Planned Parenthood!!

...or how I'm going to be like a politician and go back on a promise.

It has come to my attention from private emails and public comments that many of you are upset about donations going to organizations OTHER than Planned Parenthood after the auction was explicitly advertised as being to benefit this charity. I apologize. I was so excited to get this going and so wanting to have money going toward this charity that I didn't think about it when international donors requested the ability to donate to organizations in their country of choice.

This auction was absolutely started as a response to the Susan G. Komen announcement where the charity pulled its support of Planned Parenthood. This pulled a huge chunk of Planned Parenthood's budget and endangered women who would not have been able to otherwise afford breast exams and other care. I should have taken that into account when answering questions about donating to other organizations.

So here's the lowdown. This round is EXPLICITLY going toward Planned Parenthood. I apologize to anyone who offered items based on my saying that you could accept donations to international organizations. Feel free to withdraw your support if this is the case. No hard feelings, though I hope this is not true. Send me a private message with a link to your offering and I will be happy to delete it before February 14th when the auction begins.

I truly apologize to anyone who has been confused or angered by this decision but I hope we can do well by this charity and help people. If you have any questions please comment here. I appreciate your patience and your support of this community and this charity.

Here's where we're going to put ALL the Q&A for this community. Feel free to ask questions about anything and we'll try to help you out.

1. Where can I find more information on the current charity?

http://www.plannedparenthood.org/

2. Where can I donate for the charity?

Here.

3. Can I donate without being a part of the auction?

ABSOLUTELY! Please. Help in any way you can! I'm sure that the charity would love your help no matter when it comes to them.

4. What are the dates of this auction?

Posting of Offers Ends: 11:59pm EST February 13
Bidding Begins: 12:01am EST February 14
Bidding Ends: 11:30pm EST February 21

5. How can I link to you?

Use this link http://fandom-helps.dreamwidth.org/

Use any of the images under the cut )
You can use this handy form to post to your LJ!



6. Can I post even though I don't have a Dreamwidth account?

Absolutely. Use open id to post - More Information Here! My tutorial here. FYI - Links and images will display as text only as DW has a policy preventing them being displayed as clickable links to prevent spam. Sorry :-/

7. When should items be delivered by?

No more than six months. Some things require a large amount of time to complete so if you think it will take longer than six months, put your time information in your notes to the bidder.

8. How does donation/confirmation work for this auction?

The bidder is responsible for going to the site and donating whatever your winning auction price is. Then you would email your confirmation email/screen (whichever is easiest for you) to the author/vidder/etc and they would post on your auction thread that you'd completed the donation.

9. Can I donate to a Planned Parenthood type organization in my own country instead?

Absolutely! If you don't live in the United States and want to support your country's family planning organization, that would be great.


Please see new post on this. Sorry for the confusion

Any further questions, comment below and we'll answer ASAP!
