K, I agree DD, let's have red5sixx auction the figures, since he probably gets tons of page views.
I think the Sept. 30th deadline should be for having the figure in yours or your friend's hands. That way he can list it and get it done by October 2nd. Then the proceeds could go to the beneficiaries as fast as possible. I can ship my clone by the 18th to wherever, so send me a PM. If we could expedite things by just donating figures already made, that might be better. That way, the beneficiaries could get the help faster.
Jokabofe has a point: If ebay has indeed terminated charity auctions for possible fraudulent causes, we need to cover our bases. We would need to get all applicable info for the recipient(s) and call ebay to let them know a) we're auctioning stuff for charity, and b) whom exactly it goes to. Maybe they have a standard process for handling such things. Jokabofe, will you be the point-man on this? I know Ennis is a beneficiary, but is there anybody else this is for? We'd need their contact info, Paypal email, physical address (or PO if they can't get home), etc.
Of course Red5sixx would keep a portion of the money to cover expenses, etc., as previously mentioned.
Concur with all, none, or some of the proposal? Let's get this figured out ASAP for obvious reasons.
