I can finally announce the end of the Richard Armitage Silent Auction 2013 event.
I’d like to thank all the people who donated items, bid, made direct donations, reblogged, retweeted and so on, for taking part!
Almost all the items found new homes and I hope they are making their way to the winners as we speak (or in our case I type and you read).
When I first came up with the idea for the auction, I thought auctioning off 10 items and raising 100 GBP would be great.
I’m so happy to announce that we have exceeded my expectations many times over.
The final tally for RA Silent Auction is:
Yup, that’s 668,62 GBP!
The funds raised during the silent auction are being transferred to a Richard Armitage Just Giving charity that you chose in the poll:
Unfortunately due to a limit as to the amount I can transfer in one go, I have separated it into separate operations, the first 3 were already completed on Monday for the sum 350GBP.
The additional 338,62GBP will be transferred today 🙂
I hope that the money we have raised will help offer assistance to children in distress.
If you’d still like to contribute to the Richard Armitage charities, you can participate in the Just Giving Back Fundraiser.
From now through December 15th you can make a donation as way of thanking Richard for his wonderful work and to celebrate the premiere of The Hobbit: Desolation of Smaug.
I know I’ve said it before, but the RA Community of Armitage Admirers is an incredibly generous bunch!
I can’t tell you how much it warms the cockles of my (frozen) heart that you reacted so positively to my idea.
Thank you to Magzy, Guylty, Serv and Arky for their assistance when I was ironing stuff out and needed someone to bounce ideas off
and hold my hand.
I’m very thankful that all of you took the time to contribute and who knows, maybe the RA Silent Auction will become an annual event 🙂
It turns out that I have to verify the Paypal account before I can make any other transfers as I’ve reached “the annual limit” 😦
I’m doing my best to fix this as soon as possible, but I probably won’t deal with the issue till I’m back from London on Monday, so the last transfer won’t be through till then.
Bear with me, the money is safe and waiting to find it’s way to the ChildLine account.
