Support Con or Bust as it helps fans of color/non-white fans attend SFF cons: check out its annual online auction, on which bidding is now live! There are three ways to browse items: scroll through all the posts by viewing the 2016 auction category; browse the 2016 auction tags; or see a Google Docs spreadsheet indexing all offers.
To bid, all you need to do is leave a comment stating the amount of your bid in U.S. dollars, with a working email address (which will not be displayed). If you like, check the box that says “Notify me of followup comments via e-mail” to make sure you don’t miss any later bids. You can also enter your email address where it says “Subscribe without commenting.” Bidding will end Sunday, June 5, 2016 at 4:00 p.m. (time zone conversions, countdown), unless last-minute bids are received (more details). This auction is Con or Bust’s principal source of funds for the entire year, so please take a look!
You can also donate to Con or Bust outside the auction. If you’re paying through a PayPal account and want 100% of your payment to go directly to Con or Bust, you can donate via the PayPal Giving Fund (note that the Giving Fund doesn’t allow you to send a message with your donation and doesn’t notify us immediately that your donation has been made; of course you may forward your acknowledgment email from the Giving Fund on to firstname.lastname@example.org). If you’re using a credit card or need to send a message directly with the donation, please use the button below:
Finally, if you were hoping to offer something in the auction now that bidding’s started, please email me to discuss at email@example.com.
Thanks, and please spread the word!
