WHAT IS IT: An Online Auction to help raise funds for Innovative Ministry Percolator (IMP)
You are invited to look at your unwanted Christmas presents, or other items you might have (please be new or new-ish) and donate them to a good cause—to help our innovative ministries raise funds!
Anyone can donate an item. Take a picture of your donation and write a brief description of what it is and a suggested starting bid. You will be invited to post your items starting in January, or you can email the picture and the description to Mindi Welton-Mitchell firstname.lastname@example.org.
WHEN IS IT: The Auction will open on Monday, January 11th, 2016, and close on Friday, January 22nd at 10pm Pacific Time.
WHERE IS IT: The Auction will take place on Facebook.
HOW WILL IT WORK? In the beginning of January I will announce that people can start posting items into the event. On Monday, January 11th, I will post any items emailed to me and announce the opening of the auction. We will accept new items to bid on until January 15th. To bid, simply comment on the photo with your email address and your bid. If there is a previous bid, comment below with your email and a higher bid.
HOW WILL I KNOW IF I WON? On Friday, January 22nd, we will close the bidding by commenting “Sold” and the person’s name and amount. We will then send the winners an email to notify them that they have won and they have 7 days to pay their winning bid to UNCO. If the winner does not respond within 7 days, the next highest bidder will then be declared winner. The provider of the item will then be notified and will arrange with the winner how to get them their auction item. If you provide the item, you are also donating the cost of shipping (or arrangements to deliver the item).
Questions? You can contact Mindi Welton-Mitchell at email@example.com or @revmindi on Twitter.
