NOW LIVE: 2022 #DecemberFundRAiser

The time has finally come. Welcome to the 2022 December Fundraiser.

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 (all times are GMT and refer to Wednesday, 30 November).  The auctions are set to run three days, concluding onWednesday, 30th November. This time we have 28 auctions for you to bid on. Besides “traditional” fan items such as DVDs or memorabilia we also have hand-crafted, one-off items that have been lovingly created by our fan sisters. I’d like to take the opportunity to especially welcome the new donors this year. It is wonderful that the fundraiser project continues to draw new supporters. While I personally enjoy getting to know new people through our communication for receiving the donations, it also means that the pool of items is continually refreshed with exciting, new pieces. This year we have contributors from 11 different countries! They range from Finland in the North to Cyprus in the South, and span the globe from Ireland to Australia! To my amazement it has even been possible for our Russian fan sisters to send donations. So my thanks go to this year’s auction contributors, who have all been credited in the listings below. Your support drives these fundraisers. Thank you so much!

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.

As in previous years, I am again offering the opportunity to contribute to the fundraiser with a donation. You can do so via the 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 “December Fundraiser” and click on “gift/for friends”. That way we can avoid transaction fees. (I have also left a donation button towards the top of the right sidebar on the blog.)

Here are this year’s offerings:

  2. I’ve accessed the link. I’ve signed in. I can see all the items, but I have to click on View (top right) to see the description and to bid (more like a regular ebay page than our Auction), and I can’t see the other bids. The page looks different than it did for the last Auction. Not sure what I’m doing wrong.

  7. I can’t bid on anything. Maybe because I’m in the U.S.? I can see the listings but there are no buttons to bid or for further information, like usual. I really want that beautiful Monet set so I hope that I can figure it out later on Monday, after a few hours kip!
