Hey all. Thanks to all who participated in our Help Animals auction. We did sooo much better than last year! Which is great. Think of all the good we did; all the animals we might save. Thanks again to the contributors and bidders. You all get a round of applause from me. We made a total of $158.00 if my calculations are correct! :) Please be sure to send your payment when you can and send me the "Evidence" so to speak to me via email at carlocheerleader@gmail.com Thanks again, everyone!

To my calculations, with 5 days left of the auction, we already made over $100 to Help Animals. I am thrilled - beyond thrilled. Let's keep it going. You all rock so hard. I want to thank both the contributors and the bidders. Without all of you, none of this would be possible. I also want to thank my cohort and friend Sharon for agreeing to help me with out with this program. It's quite a task running it every year and she embraced the challenge with open arms. Thanks to all. I am having a moment here but this all brings a tear to my eye! :)

Here's where we're going to put ALL of 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.barriodogs.org/


2. Where can I donate for the charity?

 

Through their website: http://www.barriodogs.org/donations.html

 

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 January 31, 2014
Bidding Begins: 12:01am EST February 1, 2014
Bidding Ends: 11:30pm EST February 9, 2014

 

5. How can I link to you?

 

Brand new banners and ads are coming soon!

 

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

 

Absolutely. Use open id to post - More Information Here! OR see cee's tutorial here.

 

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 timeline information in your notes to the bidder. Also, I will be setting up a special collective at Archive of Our Own for finished projects!

 

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/screenshot (with all the important info. like account numbers blacked out!) to Daphne (the head admin of this project) here and I will let the maker know you have gone through with the donation. Then the fun part begins! Where they make you whatever you asked for - be it a fan fic, icons, other graphics, et al.

 

9. You didn’t make a lot of money last time. Why should I sign up this year?

 

Simply because every little bit helps! Seriously, it does. But this year we are mass spamming everyone, asking anyone and everyone to help out. We have set our goal to raise $500 at least. Please help us meet our goal.

 

10. Who’s running this program?

 

Passionista23 and her good friend Sharon! J

 
11. I thought this auction was going to support "The Willie-Coppee Fund". What's "Barrio Dogs"?

We were going to send all donations to "The Willie-Coppee Fund" and still believe in the cause BUT at this point, it is not a 501C-recognized charity which means it’s not tax-deductible. You may still donate to the program yourself but please know those things in advance. For now, we will be supporting "Barrio Dogs" which is a similar program but is more wide-spread. It focuses on giving proper animal care in low income communities. “Because there is a huge animal overpopulation problem in these inner city communities more emphasis on spay and neutering is vital."

Thank you for understanding the change and know that "Barrio Dogs" is indeed tax-deductible and recognized as a 501C organization.

 


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

Hey everyone. Longtime, no post. I know! Shame on me. But I have been looking for the perfect animal charity and I think I found it. Details will be posted soon! In the meantime, will you please help spread the word about this community? Our goal will be to raise at least $500 this year so we need all the help we can get - writers, fan art makers, vidders and more. Thank you!

We made a total of $72.00! I know that doesn't sound like a ton of money but its $72.00 the ASPCA did not have before. Thanks again to all who participated. I will try another Help Animals auction next year, maybe awhile after the holidays so people's bank accounts have more time to recover. Live and learn, I guess. Everyone who won an auction, please email me a screenshot of your receipt or something like it (with your main personal information scratched out) when you'd paid so I can let your artist know they can start working on your products. Email me here please.

THANKS!
