Warning concerning donations: Both the Red Cross NZ and the Salvation Army require a minimum donation of $5.00 NZD ($3.75 USD) Please keep this in mind when offering and bidding.
Minimum bids for the entire auction must be at least $1.00 USD, but bids of less than $5.00 NZD ($3.75 USD) are not accepted by either the Salvation Army or the Red Cross. You may donate less than $5.00 to the NZ Government, by buying an LJ v-gift, or by donating to the RNZSPCA.
You may only donate to our approved list of charities in the links list at right. The choice is up to the donor, though you may consult with your offeror if you wish.
To bid please reply to an offer with a starting bid. All bids must be in USD, and here is a currency converter if you need it. Competing bids must be raised by at least $1.00 USD.
Please do not delete comments or bids. If you have an issue with a bid, please contact a mod at help.nzeq [at] gmail [dot] com or reply to your own bid with an explanation. All questions can be directed here, please use this entry only for offers and bids.
IMPORTANT NOTE REGARDING BIDS: The donation sites do NOT automatically convert from USD to NZD. When donating you must first convert your USD bid to NZD or your donate less than you pledged.
Make your bids in USD, but when you go to the charity websites you will be donating in NZD not USD. The exchange rate is roughly $1.00 USD to $1.33 NZD. See the FAQs if you have any more questions.
