Plano High School, Plano, Texas. Class of 1975
Many of you know I’ve been working on putting together a bid item for a silent auction that will be held at my high school reunion next month. The proceeds of the auction are going to help one of our classmates who has been stricken with a rare condition that has deprived her of the use of her legs. Months of tests, hospital stays and physical therapy have taken a toll on her finances. As the owner/operator of a mobile pet grooming business, she has been unable to work since earlier this year.
Kathy is the kind of person who would help any of us if we were in need, so it is no hardship for us to help her now.
My idea was to ask a few writer friends to contribute a book or two for the auction. In a matter of hours, I had so many writers asking how they could donate both print and eBooks, that I was overwhelmed. How does one auction off a great number of eBooks? The solution was to purchase a new Kindle and load all the donated books on it. Then, some of the fabulous authors who sent downloads of their work, asked if they would have a chance to bid on the Kindle.
Well…after speaking with the lovely women coordinating the auction, the answer is – Yes!
Below is a detailed list of the content currently on the Kindle. There are, at this point, 45 books on the device, and the combined value of the Kindle and content is $268.35. More content may be added before the auction takes place on Oct. 8th.
How to bid on the Kindle –
Review the description of the Kindle and its content. (Listed below)
2) Email your MAXIMUM BID (this is the highest amount you are willing to pay for this item) to this address – email@example.com
Put the word BID in the subject line of your email
Deadline – Absentee bids will be accepted up until Midnight (Central Time), Oct. 7th, 2011.
Bids received by email will be sealed in individual envelopes by the class secretary, and will not be opened until bidding has closed at the event.
If the winning bid is from an absentee bidder, the winner will be notified by email on or before Oct. 9th, 2011 and given instructions on how to make payment. (The class has a PayPal acct.)
The Kindle will be shipped to the winner as soon as payment is received.
Again, thanks so much to everyone who has contributed to this cause. For those of you who sent print books, and a lot of you did, they will be put into a separate bid item to be auctioned off at the event on Oct. 8th.
