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?
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.
