Just a quick post to announce that the inaugural Words Against Cancer Auction to support the Canadian Cancer Society is now open, and will be until this coming Sunday night, April 13th.
As previously stated, I will be doing my best to update the leading bid on a daily basis. However, I should clarify that the aforementioned leading bid will be listed in Canadian funds. Should you state you'd like to bid in a foreign currency, it will be converted into Canadian funds at a comparable exchange rate and checked against the current leading figure to see if it will be overtaken. (However, it'd be easier to submit your bid as if you were bidding in Canadian funds.)
Just a reminder, if you'd like to place a bid on the auction item: a personally autographed, paperback copy of "The Prairie Fire Within", shipped to you, just write an email to firstname.lastname@example.org stating your bid, and write the Auction ID: A001 in the Subject line.
Best of luck in the auction, everyone.
