The Auctions for #HoHoHolidayFundRAiser Are Now LIVE

Here we go!

Happy HoHoHoliday FundRAiser to you! 

The auctions have now gone live on eBay. You can access the individual auctions by clicking the CLICK HERE link for the respective item. They are grouped in chronological order of auction start. I will later update this post with the exact end time of each auction.

Running for the next three days to conclude on Tuesday, 30th November, a total of 40 individual auctions have been listed. Among them you will find “traditional” fan items such as DVDs or memorabilia, but also hand-crafted, one-off items that have been lovingly created by our fan sisters. My thanks go to this year’s auction contributors:, who have all been credited in the listings below. This fundraiser would not be possible without you all. Thank you!

Apart from the eBay auctions, we will also sell lower priced items as simple purchasing transactions via Etsy. The fixed-price sale will start on Tuesday and runs until Wednesday, possibly even longer depending on how the sale goes!

The proceeds of the auctions and fixed-price sale are to benefit the hospice care charity LOROS, in lieu of Christmas presents for Richard. The donation will be made after all auctions and the fixed-price sale have ended. I will notify you here on blog once that is done.

If you do not wish to bid on an item but would like to contribute with a donation, you can do so via this specific link to my Paypal account. Your donation will be added to the final sum and go to LOROS in its entirety. A click on the donation image below will take you to my Paypal site where you can donate a sum of your choice. Note: The donation button is linked with my Paypal account in order to collect all proceeds/donation in one place. Please label your donation

  3. Wow, there are so many gorgeous things on offer. It’s amazing what creativity and generosity we have in the fandom and that it’s possible to do this twice a year now on such a grand scale.
    As always, a thousand thanks to you for all you do. I’m honored to be a part of this FANtastic fundRAiser.

  4. Right On! The line up looks great too.

    Thanks for including my meager contributions too G. It helps relieve, (albeit a fraction) of my catholic guilt as I always felt bad when I’ve missed out on at least _seeing_ your past fundraisers.

    Almost missed this one too as my iPhone went tits up.📲 I managed to score one Saturday night, by the skin of my 🦷 teeth. Somehow the one I ordered (and paid in full) from the apple store got sold out from under me in the few minutes between ordering and paying for it.

    I bought one with less storage than I wanted, so at least I have a working phone again.

    I was _Seriously_worried for a minute; (hubs was jumping for joy at the possibility of my undivided attention though. 💁🏻‍♀️Psych!)

    I know . . . there always so much drama in my life. 😆Ha

    Anyway, placed a bid on one item so far, but will look more closely again. Thanks again for all the hard work you’re putting in, you are my Super Hero!💕🌻

    • Glad to hear you were able to replace your iPhone. Pity about the lower storage capacity. But at least you are still online. Much to your hubster’s chagrin 😂
      Fingers crossed your bid will win 😉. And many thanks for your contributions – every little helps (as the Tesco ad says 😁)
