As most of you are aware, AUSXIP has launched an auction to raise money for one of our own, Kim Pritekel who needs eye saving surgery. One of my biggest fears is losing my sight and I think that goes for many people. Faced with such a prospect and knowing there is something you can do to fix it but being unable to do so has to be such a terrible tangle. Kim finds herself in this position and that is why AUSXIP has come on board to help out.
While I was in New Zealand, Mesh has taken this under her wing and has set up the AUSXIP Auction page with over 158 items (and more to come). Bards and fans have banded together in donating items for this auction. I love this fandom and one of the major reasons is that it supports its own, the stars of the show and anyone remotely associated with Xena. For the Greator Good in this case is for one of our own. Thank you to everyone who contributed and who has bid/is bidding. There is also a paypal button on the auction site if you want to donate without bidding.
If you have previous registered for AUSXIP Auctions, you can bid on the items using the same username and password. If not, you can register by going here and if you are not sure what your username and password is - please go here
Mesh sent the following note about the latest auction updates:
