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.

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.

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

$15 :-)

You've won this auction. Please make your donation and forward your
receipt to the offeror, unless you're giving a v-gift. Cheers. (NB:
Your donation will be in NZD unless you buy a V-gift. You may want to
convert your bid from USD to NZD using this so that you are not donating less than you pledged.

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

Please let me know (by replying to this comment) when you receive
proof of donation and to which charity the money went? Thanks.

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

Proof of $21 donated to the SPCA. :-)

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

Great, thank you! :D

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

Seems I won this one! \o/

Do you have any preferences when it comes to choice of charity?

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

I'm glad you did; you'll ask me for Vila-ness!

The SPCA or the Red Cross are fine; I donate regularly to both.

Re: Blake's 7 fanfiction

Damn right I will! :-D

$21 NZD donated to the SPCA, confirmation mail forwarded to you - at least I hope so, if I got everything right...
