Congratulations to all the auction winners!

Congratulations to all the auction winners!


What happens next?
You will receive a message from me confirming you have won the auction. You will then need to make your donation to one of the charities listed in the main post, and post a screenshot of the donation confirmation to this post. Please make sure you black out any real names etc. Alternatively, if you are more comfortable doing that, you can email your auctionee with your donation confirmation and they can post to this post that they have indeed seen it.

You will then receive some wonderful fandom goodies in the timeline agreed between you and the auctionee. More importantly, money is raised for the Balkan floods relief efforts. Everyone wins!

Thank you everyone who offered their services and everyone who bid!!

Community Purpose

This community was created on 24th May 2014 to help coordinate a fandom fundraising effort for the Balkan floods relief efforts currently underway. This is in the same vein as previous communities such as help_haiti and will follow much the same format.

What are the Balkan floods?

May 2014 saw catastrophic floods affect Serbia, Bosnia-Herzegovina and, to a lesser, extent, Croatia. As well as the disruption to people's lives from the evacuations, entire towns and villages have been completely submerged, leaving thousands homeless.

0,,17639322_303,00

The floods are on-going and the problems continue to escalate. Most reputable news agencies are providing some coverage, and relief efforts have begun. With government relief work bare bones at best, international aid agencies have been stepping in to provide emergency shelter and WASH (water, sanitation, hygiene) kits, as well as ensuring that children's schooling is not disrupted for large periods of time. Due to the large amounts of property damage the floods have brought amount, the recovery will be slow.

What will this community do?

This community, as well as its sister community on DW, is providing a place where fandom can offer its collective services to fundraise for the relief efforts.

The process will be simple: fan writers, artists, crafters and other creators will put themselves and their wares up for auction. Fandom will then bid on them, and the winning bidder will make a donation of the winning bid to one of the nominated charities. They will then receive a lovely commissioned piece of work and a glow of well-being from having donated to a good cause.

What will this community NOT do?

This community is not a source of news or updates for the unfolding events in the Balkans (although there will be some updates of major developments). We will have a list of resources that people can follow so they can keep on top of the developing news.

What are the nominated charities?

The main nominated charity is the Red Cross. There are 4 options:

British Red Cross

Croatian Red Cross

Red Cross Serbia

Red Cross Society of Bosnia and Herzegovina

Additional charities may be added as appeals are opened. For the moment, the above should accept international donations (if in doubt, use the British Red Cross appeal).

I want to help! What can I do?

Please volunteer your services in the auction, bid on someone listed, or organise a local fundraiser! If you are a graphics artist, this community (& the DW one) need a banner & similar graphic goodies, and we will need people to publicise and signal boost. Please either comment on this post or contact the moderator directly if you would likely to develop graphics or have any awesome ideas you'd like to contribute.
