2024 Charity Auction Benefitting Mary's Hands Starting January 1st at noon MST 3 months 1 week ago #14

Lots of new bids coming in but still great deals! We are now up to $2,800 in bids!

Leader for the Golden Ticket has changed hands - Doctor Bong couldn't stand up to the might of Armless Tiger Man. Dishman got dethroned as the top bidder for the Spirit Pet Rubber Ducky by Mildly Microwaved Pre-Pubescent Kung Fu Gophers!

Welcoming some new bidders from today:
Mildly Microwaved Pre-Pubescent Kung Fu Gophers, Armless Tiger Man, and Captain Rivet!

About 3 1/2 days left!
When we exceed $3K, I'll add a couple more items to the auction and as a thank you for that stretch goal, all winning bidders will get an extra folio, hitchhiking ghost, and another extra as thank you gifts.

I'm thinking of some cool stretch goals to add for $3,500 and $4,000 - let's keep the bids coming!

2024 Charity Auction Benefitting Mary's Hands Starting January 1st 3 months 1 week ago #15

We are up to $3,110 in total bids! Wow! Keep in mind - anything purchased is tax deductible as a donation to our 501C(3) Mary's Hands!

I'd like to welcome new bidders Arthur and The Deadly Bulb/(pigleg)!

Bidding for the Golden Ticket had become more intense - current high bid is $1,200!
Bidding for the Spirit Pet Rubber Duck has also gotten intense with the current high bid up to $115 (His friend Launchpad will be sad to see Magic 8 ball go but it is for a good cause and I'm sure Magic 8 Ball ducky will have a good new home.)

As promised, we eclipsed $3,000 so I am adding some additional tokens to the auction: (Found on the bottom of the bidding page)
2023 UR Lenses of Flawsight
2009 UR +2 Hammer of Thunderbolts

When we hit $3,500 - more will be added!

In terms of deals, we have quite a few great deals available still:
Orion's belt is at only $76, Boots of Protection at $40, Stalker beads of focus and skill at $125 each, and greater bead of whispers going for $130.
Ioun Stone Golden Nugget at $105 and Bead of Bounty at $71

We have 14 URs (including 2024 items) going for $31 or less with several below $15.

Safehold hirelings for only $21

Enhanced token group including enchanter's whetstone and half a dozen other tokens (most usually going for more than $20 each) at only $41
2023 VTD completion set with both the goggles of anticipation AND Grunnel's fruitcake at $80
Set of 2023 Monster tokens (excluding Batterack's Skull) going for $30
CURSED scale of greed at only $27

Adding 2 URs for hitting 3K seemed thin so I'm doubling down on it.
In addition to the 2 extra UR's added - I am adding:
Skull of Batterak
2024 Patron Run Token! We don't know what it is yet - maybe a Grunnel Hireling? Whatever it is - you can bid on it RIGHT NOW!

2024 Charity Auction (Mary's Hands) Jan 1-Jan 15th includes a Golden Ticket! 3 months 1 week ago #18

So - the bids and interest got insane last night...
We have crossed the $4,000 mark in total leading bids! That unlocked 3 new items:
Set of Ghosts, Folios, and charms of transmorph!
I want to welcome Hand Grenade Man, Fish Boy, The Shoveler, Hamster Vice, Apocalypse Cow, Four Legged Man, and Lobstercules to the party!
Doctor Bong's attempt to snatch the Golden Ticket was thwarted by the Armless Tiger Man! We have 1 day left so we'll see!
The Hireling Baker (2024 patron completion token), 2024 Volunteer UR, Goblet of Toasting, and Skull of Batterak all got a slew of bids. Now that bids have been updated - we'll hopefully see some more today!

Seriously - above $4,000 beats last year. This will cover our starts and seeds and part of the amendments needed. This will make a real difference - thank you sincerely. We still have 1 more day left - let's see where this goes!

I'll try to do updates every 2-3 hours from here out. We're up to $4,297 in total winning bids so far! It looks like that $4,500 goal is attainable.

TONS of new bids. This is, by far, the most individual bids we've had on the charity auction. 38 people have bid high enough to get a moniker (you only get a moniker with a high bid - if you don't hit that, no name.) I've had to research new names to give out (and found some really good ones along with a couple I had forgotten to include.)

I want to welcome Penny Plunderer, The Space Turnip, and Vulva Girl to the auction!

Howard the Duck was really good (comic a bit better than the movie but even the movie I have a soft spot for.)
I shared the names of what I've used so far with my sons (both college aged and comic book fans) - my oldest was surprised that DogWelder was new to me - he had known about it for quite some time.

We crossed the $4,500 mark!!! We're currently at $4,837.50. $5K is free shipping. I am working on a cool $6K stretch bonus. I'm thinking catering for the volunteers for GHC or GenCon - just need to run it by some locals there first.

New items added to the auction!
We're adding a second Greater Bead of Whispers
Ship's Passage Mirthwood
Ship's Passage Pemberton

The Bead and Pemberton were donated by a generous benefactor!

WOW! Keep it going!

I'll do one more update late tonight then again in the morning - from there likely every hour (possibly more frequently as we near the close of the auction.)
