We are taking new offers for the auction for the next 8.5 hours, midnight EST US (GMT-5). Then there will only 24 hours left to make bids until we close this auction on Sunday March 13, 2011 at 1:00 am EST US time (an hour before our time change for spring!!)

We're very sad to see the devestation in Japan following so hard on the heels of the disaster in Christchurch. Our hearts go out to the people of Japan. Please go to help_japan if you can make another auction offering, bid some more, or if you can help them out with modding. They are going to need all of those things. Go be amazing over there! I'm doing what I can to help them get going and get organized, while still closing everything out over here.

And the Linwood College Orchestra in Christchurch is in rather desperate shape. Please consider donating to them.

BIG NEWS!!!

LJ asked me to extend the auction so they could plug it in Thursday's news letter. \o/ And I decided that was too good of an opportunity to pass up. So I'm extending it. We'll also be able to make several fandom newsletters too!

We will take offers until Friday March 11, 2011 at 12:00pm (noon) US EST (GMT-5). Bidding will end on Sunday March 13, 2011 at 1am US EST (GMT-5).

Please, please pimp the auction. We need more offerors and more bidders! I know I've been relentless, but it's for a good cause.

Friendly reminder that we've been bookmarking all the offers at delicious to make them easier to search through.

We finally discovered what was causing the random screening of comments--it was our default privacy settings. It's fixed. \o/ Screening comments is still a problem. I reopened our support request. *headdesk*

We still need people to come and offer up items and people to bid, so please keep spreading the word! Thank you so much for all your help. We couldn't do this without all you lovely people.


We've been a bit stringent about how to choose charities to include in this auction and so we could not include a women's organization. I've been told that violence against women is on the rise since the quake. If you can donate any funds at all to them, please consider it. The reason we did not include them is that they are not vetted by a site like charity navigator, nor are they internationally reputable.
