Pens for Paws July 14-19, 2014

The auction is barely a month away, and new items will (hopefully) be coming in fast and furious in the next weeks! Don't forget, you can always see the updates as they go up on the Items Featuring in 2014 Auction page.

And you can still donate items through July 7. More on what kinds of donations we're looking for can be found on the Donate page above.

Also, now that Angelica has a book coming out, her schedule is even more crammed. The past two auctions have been entirely her baby, but she'd love to have some help this time around. We're looking for folks to help with individual items: you'd be responsible for an item, from posting it all the way through the closing and winner notification/delivery.

The time commitment would require composing and scheduling the post, and then you wouldn't need to do anything again until it's time for that item to close. Then you'll need to determine the winner (based on bids and time stamp) and send them a followup email (a template will be provided). An email goes to the donor, too, to let them know to expect the pages for critique or where to send their item. That's it!

If you're interested in volunteering, please shoot us an email at pensforpawsauction (at) yahoo (dot com).

Otherwise, just watch the page for new items, and retweeting our @pensforpaws news is always appreciated! Thank you

Bidding on items will close at 9PM EST (by Blogger's timestamp) two days later. Bid comments left after the close will not be counted.

You must include an email address and amount with EACH BID, like

so we can contact you to confirm you have the winning bid; if you do not claim your item within 24 hours, it will go to the next highest bidder.

It's okay to disguise your address from bots by using the format
example (at) fakeaddress (dot) com

You'll have one week to make your payment, but you must reply to our email or tweet to claim your item--PLEASE WAIT TO MAKE YOUR PAYMENT UNTIL YOU HAVE RECEIVED YOUR EMAIL CONFIRMING YOU HAD THE WINNING BID. Payment is to be made through the PayPal button in our sidebar.

Now that the business stuff is out of the way, we look forward to some frantic bidding to support the kitties!
