Geez, I am so sorry I have been so MIA you guys! School is winding down so it's been kind of crazy with term papers and presentations and exams. Not a fun time! :( Therefore, now that I finally have a few spare moments in between essay writing (looking like I will finally be in bed before 1:00 AM for a change!), it's time for some very important updates!
  1. The bidding on the photos and other items has been extended till the 13th! So please bid! These are such lovely donations and it would be wonderful if they got a home! As always, it's in exchange for a donation to help Japan, so it would be stellar if you guys would participate!
  2. Bidding for creative works ended Saturday! It was so very successful and lovely! Our total money raised through selling just fic and art is $470! YOU GUYS I THINK THAT IS SO RAD. I am so proud of us that we are such a lovely and creative bunch that we rounded up that much money! Everyone group hug!
  3. However, thanks to an anonymous donation, our actual current total is $970! That means we are $30 away from raising $1,000. THAT'S NUTS YOU GUYS, POSITIVELY NUTS. THANK YOU SO SO SO MUCH FOR CONTRIBUTING.
I am going to try my best to go through comments sometime tonight or tomorrow and respond to those who have still not donated! Also, please continue to spread the word about the auctions! It's all going to a great cause and it would be a shame to have that extra money not donated. :(

Lots of love (like so much love, you have no idea),

Diana

Hiya Wildcats! We are officially one week into the auction and like I said yesterday, I am so extremely proud of everyone! I had a moment of reflection today and at the very core, this fandom is so, so lovely and full of such great people. I am so proud and happy to say that I am a part of this and that we can call come together and help those in need. Truly lovely! So thank you, all of you, for donating and spreading the world! It means the world to me that people are involved at all!

Which brings me to some important announcements and business-y stuff that if you skim over, YOU ARE GOING TO MISS FUN TIMES. SO DON'T. Firstly, all bidding on creative work will end on Saturday, April 2nd at 11:59 PM. Honestly, the fact that we raised over $300 (at current count!) on just fic blows my mind. SO AWESOME GUYS.

WE ARE SO AWESOME, AS A FANDOM, IN FACT, THAT WE HAVE HAD SOME VERYYYY LOVELY LAST MINUTE DONATIONS! And you guys, they are fun. And awesome. And in the form of tangile objects you can hold in your hands.

So here's the haps!
  • Thanks to the wonderful Team Hudgens, we currently have five autographed (signed in marker! aka 100% legit~) 8x11 Vanessa Hudgens photographs!  The photos are super lovely, and all can be seen here!:
  • Thanks to Miss Tisdale, we have lots of Ashley Tisdale goodies! We will be auctioning off: 
- 3 Hellcats posters!
- 1 Hellcats plush football!
- 1 Aliens in the Attic DVD
-
1 Aliens in the Attic Nintendo DDS game
- 1 The Suite Life on Deck Anchors Away DVD (ft. Maddie On Deck episode w/Ashley Tisdale)
- 3 Packs of 'Zac Gives Back' business cards!
- 10 Stupid Cancer bracelets
 

SO HOW IS THIS ALL GOING TO WORK? WHAT IS THIS MAGIC? WHAT DO I DO WITH MY HANDS RIGHT NOW, I AM FLAILING. First of all, thankkkkkk you so much to the lovely people behind each of these donations! YOU ARE ALL MADE OF SUNSHINE. Basically, here is how I am intending for things to go down.
  1. There will be three separate posts. One for the Vanessa photos, one for Ashley items, and one for Zac. In a similar vein to the creative auction, there will be comments for each item that is on auction. (ie. Each Vanessa photo will get it's own auction thread for people to respond.)
  2. It will be in auction format only. No flat rates, though I am anticipating a couple of exceptions. I am still working that out! There will, however, be starting rates for some items as well. (For example, bidding for the photos will start at $10.)
  3. In each post there will be contact information for where you will send your contact information (we'll need to send you the items!) as well as where to send your receipts!
  4. Bidding for the items will officially open at 11:00 AM EST on Friday, April 1st and remain open until Monday, April 4th at 11:59 PM EST.
If you have any questions, do not hesitate to comment on this post ! I am still working out the kinks as to how this will work, so I

Hello beautiful people! So, in half an hour we will officially be one week into the bidding and four days away from the end of the auction! It is going by so quickly, and I am so happy and proud of this whole experience so far! So here's a little update!

  • So far, we have raised $275! You guys that is so impressive! And that is only from the receipts I have received from donations so far! I am so extremely proud of us. We are such a tiny fandom now, and this is all money that was raised bidding on our work. To me, that is wonderful. I was hoping to make even $25 dollars, so it's just. I am so proud and so happy. <3
  • There are still quite a few outstanding bids that needed to be followed up on! So please do so ASAP!
  • The auction is almost over! So continue to let people know that there are still great items up for bid! 
As for me, I am unfortunately no longer auctioning off work. I want to, but I can't. :( i just don't have the time. But there will be lots of exciting fanfic coming from so many great authors! That makes me so excited! If anything, I am so happy we all got together to do this as something good, and for a mini-revival for our beloved fandom.

Remember to be awesome!!

<3
 
 
Hello everyone! We are off to such a great and successful start! I am so excited and pleased! Thank you so much to everyone who has pitched in!  There are still so many awesome things up for auction! Please take a look through and continue to bid! There are a couple of bids I myself still want to place, but am waiting because I'm not sure what I want to request! 

There's been a few questions about payment and where to give your requests. So!

  • It is VERY IMPORTANT that those auctioning off work respond to the offers! Please state if the item is sold or not somewhere in your comment, though the subject line works best! 
  • Once there has been a response, you are able to make your donation! Please note that you have 48 hours from the time you placed your bid to donate! Once you have, please send a copy of the receipt (with personal information) omitted to wildcatsgive@gmail.com! 
  • You can request strictly on the auction post, or you can exchange contact information with the person you are buying from!
I think that covers everything, but let me know if there are still anymore questions needed!

Enter this post to bid!
Go to this post for information on how to bid!
The auction will take place through to the 2nd of April!
HAVE FUN!

Now it is more important than ever to continue to spread the word! Please tell your friends, your cats, your online friends, your boss, even that weird guy who sits behind you on the bus. I am sure they would all like to at least know, so they can tell the person behind the cash register at Target.

Hola everyone! As it stands, bidding officially begins in an hour and a half! SO EXCITING, SO NERVOUS. I'm so excited to have everyone (hopefully) take part! Thank you so much to the lovely people who dropped off comments leaving their lovely work for auction! Such a fantastic group of creative people have come together! I'm so proud and pleased!

As an aside, if you for whatever reason did not get the chance to drop of a comment, and still reallllly want to, of course I will make exceptions! For example, at the moment, my very best IRL friend of forever, oxenthered, as not left her comment. :|

So now it is time for bidding! Here I will leave some instructions for how it is going to work.
  1. Once you find an item you would like to bid/or buy (the majority of work is being offered at flat-rates, so get 'em while it's hot!), leave a comment saying nothing but how much you are offering/paying.
  2. It is then up to the person auctioning off the item to say whether it is sold or not through a corresponding comment.
  3. In order for the purchase to be complete, you must provide proof of your donation through e-mail to myself at wildcatsgive@gmail.com within 48 hours of said purchase. If not, it will go back up on the market. This will be done preferably through a screencap of a receipt! Please blur out any personal information, of course!
  4. I will then respond to the post with confirmation and probably an obnoxious GIF signifying that the transaction is complete and successful!
Here is a rehash of some of the places you can donate:
 You may also donate through text message. In the USA, text  REDCROSS to 90999 to make a $10 donation. In Canada, ASIA to 30333 (through Red Cross) to make a $5 donation. In the UK, text BOXES to 70700 (through Shelterbox) to make a £5 donation. 

You can pay for donations using credit, paypal, or prepaid credit cards!

In case anyone was curious or unsure of how to make a screencap: for PC users, there should be a PrtScrn button somewhere on your keyboard! For Mac users, Shift+Command+3!

This process can be confusing, so for anytime throughout the auction, please leave questions here!

Alright! Here goes nothing! It is time for those participants offering things up for auction to leave a comment here! Only creative participants are required to make a comment, but you are required!!

What we need to know!

• Your name!
• Some form of contact information, be it e-mail, Twitter, or a way to be reached by IM. This is for my use mostly, but also so bidders and buyers can contact you!
• Where they can see your work! Links include Fanfiction.net profiles, portfolios, or even uploaded images!
• What you are donating! It can be anything, and as much or as little as you like!
• Request guidelines, if applicable.For example: "Will not write Chadpay, RPF, or Adjustment Bureau based fic."
• Starting bid or flat-rate price for your items. It has been decided that $5 is a good starting point, but it is up to you what you want to offer and how to price it. If anyone is on the fence about their pricing, you know where to find me and we shall discuss!

So please fill out the form below and let's get cracking! In the subject line of your comment, please put what you are donating aka Fic, Fanmix, Artwork, etc!


BIDDING IS OPEN NOW UNTIL THE 2ND OF APRIL!
HAPPY BIDDING TO ALL!
