There’s been something I’ve been mulling over, seeking advice about, and trying to figure out the logistics of in the past few weeks and today I can finally share the news with you.
I’ve decided to organise a Richard Armitage Silent Auction from the 29th of November till December 1st.
What’s this mysterious being, you may ask…
Well, the auction will feature a number of goodies (many, but not all are RA related) that you can bid on via email (hence the silent part).
I will be posting the rules and guidelines shortly, but let me just outline the basic idea.
A bunch of items will appear in a post on the 29th of November.
if you wish to bid on a specific one, you are asked to send me an email with your bid, with the closing date being Sunday Dec. 1st.
The person who bids the highest wins.
Here’s the best part: ALL of the money raised goes to an RA charity that will be chosen by Armitage Admirers based on the results of a poll that shall be up throughout the auction.
The RA Silent Auction means that you will not only be able to get your hands on some pretty amazing items, but you’ll also be contributing towards a worthy cause.
I will be writing more about the auction closer to the date, but today I’m looking for generous and kind-hearted people to contribute items that can be auctioned off.
And when I say items, your imagination is the limit 🙂
If you would like to donate anything, or help in any way, please email me at RASilentAuction [at] wp.pl or at my usual email address.
You can also leave a comment and I will get in touch with you shortly.
And a HUGE thank you to those who have already answered my plea and have pledged awesome stuff for the auction or have offered their advice, assistance and wisdom 🙂
So, get your thinking caps on, start rummaging through your stuff, pull out the old DIY/ arts & crafts box, and put aside a few pennies for the auction!
Agzy, I will contribute the HobbitFanEvent T-Shirt I received from the event. Size M, but is small.
LOVE IT!!! Perry, I will email you shortly (after I write my monthly report for work that is 2 days past it’s deadline).
Take your time. I can also send it directly to the winner. Whatever you prefer. The poster is spoken for, but maybe someone else, hint, hint, will donate.

Fun new charity auction / game to help out charities supported by Richard Armitage! Check it out!
What a lovely idea!
If you agree I will donate my Lords of the North audio book and hope some other member of the army will enjoy it as much as I did.
That’s such a GREAT item *wiping tears that I cannot partake in the auction*. Will email you shortly!
Onboard–Handmade Erebor keychain — charm bracelet — and mug. Photos when needed.
Huge Hugs!!! You were the first one to donate items to the RA Silent Auction and you are officially my good luck charm 🙂

What a great Idea!
What a lovely idea. I wish I could help in some way, but for now is not possible for me. I just wish you good luck and good energy. ♥
Any support, retweeting and promoting is also very much appreciated 🙂
My reblog just got re-tweeted by fundraisers to 3000 people…
Oh dear me, I guess there’s no backing out now!!! 😉
And thanks again!!!
Hi, it’s a really great idea!
If you think it could help you and it could please, I can send you the DVD of “Malice Aforethought” movie with Richard which is really difficult to find.
That’s amazing, thank you!!!!
Could you email me at RASilentAuction [at] wp.pl 🙂
Count me in Agzy! I’ll look thru stuff when I get home from work, but I’m sure I can find something good for you 🙂
Can’t wait to hear what you’ve unearthed 😉 I’ve sent you an email!

What a fantastic idea! 🙂
Great. That could be Christmas sorted. As I already told you – I’ll be in with a couple of photo-related goodies, too. I guess I better get to work now and produce the goods. Can’t wait to see the final list of things up for auction. Great idea, Agzy!!!
Yay can’t wait to see the results!!! 🙂
if it doesn’t have to be RA-related, I have a couple of items that I have been meaning to put on ebay as they are in the way. 🙂 This seems like a much better cause. So, if you’re interested, I’m in.
That would be wonderful I’ve sent you an email 🙂
Great, but it will have to wait until I am back from my holiday trip. Hope that’s okay. 🙂
Absolutely, no problem, if you could send me pics/description by the 26th of Nov that would be perfect 🙂
That shouldn’t be a problem. I’ll be back by the 20th – sadly. 😦
I’m intrigued and your donation will be very welcome! I’ve emailed you 🙂

An excellent idea from Agzy! Can’t wait!!
I’ll donate my poster from the fan event on Monday!! I don’t have a collection of RA items yet, so it’s all I’ve got, but I’ll be glad to include it. I haven’t even unrolled it yet, so it’s still in beautiful condition.
You don’t have an A collection YET, but maybe the silent auction is the perfect occasion to start one? 😉
Sent you an email!
lol That’s the way to think!! I love it. 😀 I do have a handmade Richard brooch on my refrigerator as a magnet. Now who made that for me? oxoxoxoxox
🙂 I’m like a used car saleswoman will this auction is done LOL! But I have to admit that the items up for auction are amazeballs!!!
I can’t wait to see! 🙂
Me too!!! They all sound pretty awesome, but unfortunately as the only one who will know the offers, I can’t bid 😦
Having said that, it’s so much fun to organise everything and to think up what I can contribute!
A virgin Hobbit poster sound delicious 😉 I’ve emailed you.
Reblogged this on the armitage effect and commented:
Great idea! 😀
I goofed up the reblog (tried it from my phone) but I have some hand crocheted scarves if you’re interested…not RA related, but pretty :). (I can email you pix)
Sounds Snug and wonderful, I’ve sent you an email 🙂
Swietny pomysł Agzym! 🙂 Jesli jestes zainteresowana wydaniem książkowym N&S (mam i angielską i polka wersję) to daj znać 🙂
Email wysłany, mam nadzieję że kurier nie zgubi 😦
Nawet mi nie przypominaj…
czyli że ksiązkę mam wysłac na adres który mi podasz? (wybacz mnie głupiej ale wolę sie upewnić 😉 )….aha i jeszce coś Agnes…tylko nie Dżoana ! 😀
Gdybyś mogła przesłać mi zdjęcie (max. 3) i opis przedmiotów do 26.11 byłoby super 🙂
Pomyliłam Nickelback z Metalliką 😀 ( to już starość!!!)
Osz Ty! A ja już zaczęłam się martwić że stara jestem bo nie słyszałam że Metallika przyjechała za żelazną kurtynę 😉 Nawiasem, podobno concert był bardzo dobry 😦
Tak , tak tez czytałyśmy 😦
Oczywiście porawiło mi koncert na concert i teraz wychodzi na to że jestem Johnu Kołalsi z Jackowa w Czikago 😉
