[UK] Armistice Day Charity Auction - SSAFA - Twilight Imperium, Shards of the Throne, Wallenstein etc - No Bargains Whatsoever - Will ship anywhere
- (enoon)United Kingdom
Reason:: I was recently the beneficiary of a marvelous act of generosity from a fellow Geek. This prompted me to do something to acknowledge that, and I am auctioning some items that I will not play (or have a duplicate of). Moreover, needing a cambelt replacement means that I can't make the charitable donation I normally do at this time of the year, so I'm hoping to raise some money like this.
Beneficiary: SSAFA - the Armed Forces Charity (https://www.ssafa.org.uk/) mainly because of this: "At SSAFA we know that significant number of veterans find themselves on the streets so we have developed specialist services to support them." No-one who has done things that most of us could not do should be left to fend for themselves in their hour of of need
Payment: If you are a UK buyer and pay tax I will ask you to make the payment direct to SSAFA via their donations page, tick the "Gift Aid" option (if eligible) and send me a copy of the confirmation* (a fee-free Paypal option is available). I do not work and don't have an income high enough to pay tax, so I cannot tick the 'Gift Aid' option. If you are a UK taxpayer, ticking the "Gift Aid" option means that the charity gets an extra 25% from the taxman at no cost to you! If you are a higher rate taxpayer you can get 15% back from the taxman yourself. If you don't pay UK tax then you can either send me the money or pay it direct and send me the confirmation.
Marketplace: All sales will be processed through the BGG marketplace and BGG will receive their 3% commission.
Pricing: There are no bargains to be had. Join with me in making a donation to a worthy cause.
BINs: Once a bid has been made which reaches the reserve, the BIN is no longer available.
Closing: Items will close at a random time within a day (24h) of the close time of 11:00 11.11
Shipping: Buyer pays shipping to me at cost. Of course shipping will be consolidated.

Edit: "Soft" Reserve changed to "Reserve". I will not let these items go for less than the reserve price - this is a charity auction.
Add your Own Items: in case you feel like adding your own items in support of SSAFA, go right ahead. You must process the "sale" through the marketplace and just send me some proof of payment to SSAFA. If you want to change any of the BIN/reserve/shipping terms, go right ahead and make it clear in your listing.
