A Fandom Auction to help Haiti recover

Thanks to all of you for setting this up! It's been great taking part and I can't believe how much money was raised.

YAY! Congratulations, everyone -- you all ROCK!

You are, all of you, amazing. The world is better with you in it. Thank you.

And if all the pledges are kept and the sums donated, [info]help_haiti will have raised nearly $115,000.00.

Thank you all for the hard work - I can't even tell you what it meant to me to be a part of such an effort!

I love fandom so much right now. And I love y'all most of all.

Thanks so much for doing all this. I can't imagine the time and effort involved, and I'm boggled by how successful this turned out!

I'm a bit confused by this:
"Not quite half of the pledges have been confirmed yet, and we still have a few more pages to check through in the Lightning Round, but at this point, we can state that over $50,000 has already been donated to various relief organizations to help Haiti rebuild."

Does this mean you've gone through all donation confirmations you received, except lightning round ones? Because I sent mine the day the auction closed, and haven't heard back yet... Should I send it again? (

I completely understand if it's just that you have so many you're still going through them, of course, I just want to make sure mine didn't get lost. :) )

No, we haven't. We've done about half of them, but we aren't finished yet. I plan to plow through a bunch more tonight and be caught up by tomorrow afternoon. Also, we aren't always replying to the winning bidders - somewhere after 11 last night I forgot to click reply to say THANK YOU... But what we are doing for every one is notifying the offerors by replying to the original offer, so you can check there to see if we've processed it yet.

I am in awe of what has been achieved here and I feel honoured to of been able to take part. I want to say thank you so much to all the mods for their hard work and dedication, this has been so efficiently run and a pleasure to take part in.
I feel ridiculously proud of this community and every single member, you're all amazing. ♥

Holy flying mother of a duck! Fantastic!! :D

I've had my donator confirmed, so I'll be getting on her fic. This is so cool! Great job to everyone who contributed and the mods for their super-f*&king-awesomeness!!

Whee, posted! :D And I wanted to say, earlier in the chat (but didn't, because I'm scatterbrained like that), that none of this would have happened without you taking on the organisation of this, so double love to you for caring, for your motivation, for everything that you've done for this. <3

It's been an absolute pleasure and honor to participate in this. I'll continue to do so in February and however long it goes on!

Thank you all for everything you do.

You can't PM a comm - can you send an email to helphaiti.lj @ gmail.com instead?

Holy crap, $115,000?

I am pretty much speechless now, so for everyone who bid, who offered their goods and services and time, for everyone who spent so much time putting those numbers and this community together, I can only say you are

I'm still waiting to here back about a fanartist I bid on? I'm pretty sure I won, but I don't know if I should go ahead and donate or wait...

If you haven't heard from either your offeror or a mod, it is likely you did not win. Go check the post where you made your bid, and you should see some confirmation from the offeror or a mod to the winner. If you don't see anything, come back here and let us know (and please give us the URL of the offering post). :)

This is fantastic! Thank you so much for running this and letting us all be a part of something so amazing!

This has been amazing to be a part of and to witness. Thank you, mods, for organizing and wrangling and doing the fifty bajillion things necessary to keep everything running.

So that you can (probably) add it in -- my $87 donation to Sanctuary For Kids through this (they're passing all donations til Feb 12 directly to the Haiti relief effort) is being doubled by the Canadian government, so you can add another $87 if that works :)

Heidi, I, too, want to thank you for taking this thing on. It has been a pleasure and a delight (an exhausting pleasure and delight, to be sure *g*) working with this team!

And go, fandom! $115,000! That is so ridiculously awesome, I can't even comprehend! :D

This is FABULOUS!!!! Thank you to everyone!
