To make offers easier to scroll through please place something in the subject line about your offer.

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.


Bidding Rules:

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.

offer: gift package from China / HK / Taiwan / Italy

what i'm offering: gift package of love from China / HK / Taiwan / Italy. ♥

just a little bit about myself: i'm from the States but work for most of the year in Shenzhen, China. it's a fairly new but vibrant and international city. there's everything from antique markets to tea houses to high-end shopping centers. i fly back to the States about once every three to four months via the Hong Kong and Narita airports, so i can definitely pick up anything you can think of that's offered within. and i occasionally stop by Taipei to see extended family, so -- if time allows -- goodies from the jade market and Eslite bookstore will be added in. the package will likely be shipped mid-May, which is when i'll be back in the US. if you're willing to wait until July, i can certainly find a few more gifts from my summer trip to Tuscany.

[ note: i ship internationally! shipping costs are totally covered, so don't worry about it. :) if you have any specific items in mind, i will do my utmost to find them (and ensure that the total value of the package matches the winning donation), but there are no absolute guarantees. please do check your country's customs regulations beforehand, though i don't anticipate any major problems. also, if you want tea / snacks, please let me know of any allergies you might have. ]

starting bid: $1
