Official Auction Rules, Logistics & Whatnot.

It will be noted within each individual listing. The staggered closing times has been implemented to prevent a site crash!

Thank you for ALL your hard work, your effort, and no doubt, zillions of emails up and back behind the scenes.

I don’t have many readers yet but I did a post this morning sending people here and to Susan’s site.

You’ve done a great job with this and thanks to the many people who have donated items and time. It’s so great to see a bunch of strangers come together for someone who needs help!

Just got back last night and never got my act together to donate an item, but I will for sure bid on Monday! You have done an amazing job organizing everything!!!

I have been hearing a lot about this event, and was really excited to participate and bid on a number of items.

Until I realized virtually the entire window of opportunity to enter, for a west coast working woman, is during the work day. I do not get home from work until 7:30 p.m. (10:30 p.m. ET), and I observed that leaves me with a limited number of items to bid on between 10:30 p.m. and 11:00 p.m. — and that’s assuming I jump on the computer right when I get home.

In the future, I hope your event can last until 10:00 p.m. West Coast time, so we can all contribute.

Janetha July 24, 2011 at 6:52 pm

I am so sorry to hear that, Rose! It has been really tricky figuring out times for the auction to close for each item, but the only way to prevent a site crash it to stagger the items throughout the day. I had to pick tomorrow because I am a working woman myself, but it’s an observed holiday here in Utah tomorrow and I have the day off. Because I have to closely monitor and update the bids by hand, I am only able to do it tomorrow and only during a certain window of time :(

Katherine July 24, 2011 at 6:59 pm

You are so amazing for doing this!
Following you now :)

Katy @ notjustacarnivore July 24, 2011 at 7:13 pm
