Last Hours of #RAnetRescue Fundraiser Have Started

Good morning everybody. Have you opened the second door of the 2019 RAdvent CalendRA yet?

I am having a busy day today. It’s annual invigilation season again. As you are reading this, I am overseeing exams – an annual gig that will this year take me to my old hunting grounds in the college I graduated from in 2012. Then it’s back home to bake a birthday cake for my son. He has today reached true and irreversible adulthood. 21. We’re preparing a big meal for him and his friends this evening. And then there is the finale of the RAnet Rescue Fundraiser. The last of the auctions on eBay is finishing at 4.22 pm. Maybe you will want to join me on Twitter where I will try to live tweet the last minutes of the auctions. Speaking of which – let’s see where we are currently at with the donations and auctions. The donations have risen to 590 Euro at this point. Fantastic result so far!

On Ebay, there was a bit of a glitch because some of the listings hadn’t been set to ship worldwide – and hence not all listings did not show up for everyone. I corrected the issue and hope that every item is now viewable. However, I have been told that the safest way of accessing the auctions is by way of the links here on the blog. There are 31 auctions in total. Once I adjusted the settings yesterday, more bids came in for the items that had previously not found any bidders. We reached a nice milestone on Ebay last night – when a bidder pushed us to a clean 500 Euro. Hooray. And at this point we have reached an auction proceeds total (before fees/postage) of 526 Euro. Can we better that? Here is a short overview of all the available items – with link and current bid.
