Auction Terms:
    • Bid by posting a comment with your bid amount and email address; anonymous bidding is NOT allowed.
    • Do not bid unless you intend to pay that amount to the designated charity organization(s).
    • Bids are in U.S. Dollars.
    • Bids under $50 must be at least $1 more than the previous bid; bids from $50 to under $100 must be at least $2 more than the previous bid; bids of $100 or more must be at least $5 more than the previous bid. Overbids are encouraged.
    • Highest bid before the end of the auction wins.  Unless otherwise stated, bidding on most items will start between $5 and $100, depending on the item and approximate value, but the starting bid is merely suggested.  You may open bidding at more, if you’d like.
    • Winning bid is not final until the winning bidder is announced in the closing comment and notified by email (MAKE SURE TO CHECK YOUR SPAM FOLDER IF YOU DO NOT SEE ONE IN YOUR INBOX). Winner notification will be sent within 24 hours of item’s end.  Winning bidder must donate the winning bid amount to the designated charity organization(s) and provide a copy of the receipt within three days of notification.  In the event a bidder does not claim their item, the item will be considered “forfeited” and I will proceed to the next to second highest, and so on.
