Soooo it has come to my attention that this community is doing the best work and so this post is not quite as necessary. Please direct your help and charity efforts to help_haiti, as they are doing a fantastic job!


Hello, everyone. It has come to my attention via several friends and a couple pokes (thank you asnowyowl!) that it might be a good time to get a list together of folks who are offering various trinkets, fics, artwork, jewelry, and services in exchange for donations towards the Haiti earthquake relief efforts.

As you may know, Haiti was struck with a 7.3 earthquake, and though details are pouring in very slowly, reports estimate the damage to be critical and severe. This community was founded to help the equal rights efforts in the US, but we are all incredibly saddened by this news for Haiti and are hopeful that we can do our part for their relief.

I'm compiling a list of wonderful fandom folks who are offering their services in exchange for donations to various charities and relief efforts. Please comment on this post if you are one of those people and would like to have your name added.

Please include: *Type of Offering, *Charity Donated To, *General Pricing or Bids (i.e. $5 per fic or Best Offer Via Bidding), and *Date Your Offer Ends as well as any other relevant information you can offer.

Thanks for all your help--as always, fandom is just such a wonderful place full of amazingly giving people.

The List


* blamebrampton is offering Four Winners (3 top bidders and 1 randomly chosen bidder) various things (including fic, concrit review of a fic or fics up to 30k, and a scene from an existing fic written along with the winner). Those who wish to bid may see this post for more information. Bidding ends: TBD

* poisoninjest is offering that ALL proceeds from jewelry sales on her website Idol Ceremony from now until Friday to be donated to Mercy Corps and/or Doctors Without Borders. See this post for more information.

* bryoneybrynn is offering 1 fic to the highest bidder. Please see this post for more information. Bidding ends Saturday at midnight.
 
 
 
 
 
 
Hi everyone!

Firstly, let me just say thanks to everyone who has participated in hpequality thus far! Whether you donated money, fanfic, items, or fanart, your contribution to the fight against Proposition 8 and basic human equality is incredibly appreciated. Through your efforts, we were able to raise over $600 for this cause, which is currently in the Supreme Court, so keep your fingers crossed!

Now, onto my reason for a mod post—we need your help!! nolagal and I have been discussing ways to get this community on a regular cycle. When I first envisioned hpequality, I didn't really have a game plan. But now, we're trying to come up with one so we can continue and expand our fund-raising efforts here. :)

So, if you have a moment, please fill out this quick survey and leave us some comments so we can work on getting hpequality back up and running!

This post will be the clearinghouse post.  If you have fics to offer please comment HERE
I will keep this updated as quickly as I can!  Check back to this post often!

User Name: snarkyscorp 
What you are offering:
 2 5,000 word fics (possibly more if there are a ton of bids)
The terms of your offer: The highest bidders win!! Just bid on my journal and get your choice slash pairing. I am very open to pairings, exluding ones with Sirius, James I, and some random lesser known characters.

Link back to your journal with the original post for people to respond:
http://snarkyscorp.livejournal.com/26856.html


User Name: bryoneybrynn 
5 - 100-500 HP word drabbles at $10 AUS each, delivered in next two weeks. Any pairing, though I do slash best, especially h/d and as/s.

5 - custom icons at $10 AUS each delivered in the next two weeks. People should look at the examples listed on my LJ post to see what I can do (not fabulous but I think they're nice enough).

Link to my LJ: http://bryoneybrynn.livejournal.com/83268.html

 
User Name: nolagal 
5- 500-1000 word ficlets.  $5AUD (only a little over $3 U.S.)
1- 5,000 word fic up for auction to the highest bidder.  (starting bid $10AUD)

The request must be harry/potter other than that I will do any pairing/rating.  If you hate me but love Australia, I will even write Harry/Ginny.
I ask a month for the ficlets (probably within two weeks but who knows) and two months for the 5,000 fic, so that I can complete my fest requirements too.

Several people have been gracious in offering fics for donations toward the relief efforts in Australia.  We at hpequality want to encourage such gracious acts.  Rather than the full service treatment, this is just a quick and dirty list.  If you are offering fics, please post a comment here with a link back to your post, I will maintain a running list.  

Please do the actual offering/bidding on your own journal.  This makes it faster and easier.  This is just a clearinghouse to help connect donors and offers.  

In your comment here, please include:

Hi everyone!!

snarkyscorp here bringing you a quick update on what's going on with hpequality .

1. Donations Collected

We have raised $358 so far for Equal Rights!!! This is an amazing number to have raised in the span of two days (well, technically it was raised in about the first 3 hours). Thanks to everyone who's donated so far - you guys are amazing!

There are still plenty of goodies up for grabs, including sketches, scarves, fics, and more fics. ;P

2. HPEquality Badges

Want to show off the fact that you wrote, drew, or donated for Equal Rights? Then grab one of the badges in our profile or lookie under the cut below to get your badges courtesy of the lovely and talented _aurora_sky_ !!

It"s a Badger, Badger, Badger, Badger - Mushroom, Mushroom!Collapse )

3. New Offers


We are A) still accepting new applications! If you have things you want to offer (fics, knitted items, trinkets, art, etc), fill out the handy-dandy application and post it here. I'll approve it and you'll be added in and we'll update everyone if more stuff is added.

B) Tomorrow I will be posting a cleaned up version of the Offers Post to show you what's still up for grabs. I think _aurora_sky_  is now offering more line arts instead of pencil sketches, the only change I know of so far. If anybody else would like to offer more fics or other items, please just let me know! I'll be closing down the first post from commenting, but you can claim stuff using tomorrow's post for organization.

Thanks, and contact myself, nolagal , or _aurora_sky_  with questions! <33

Okay, I just wanted to post one last FAQ section before we launch tomorrow. Please read through some of these Frequently Asked Questions and if you are still confused, please don't hesitate to get in touch with me (snarkyscorp ), nolagal , or _aurora_sky_ , as any one of us are more than happy to help!

Now for the FAQs:

Q. How do I claim a prize?

A. Monday, November 17, 2008, we will send out an Offers Post, which will list every author and artist who has submitted an application and what they have stated they can write/draw. If there's something on the list you want, comment on the Offer Post and say so.

Twice/week we'll update the Offers Post as a repost, which shows the updated list of items you can still claim.

Q. Is there a format for claims?


A. YES. The format is as follows:

LJ Username:
Author/Artist LJ Username:
Claim:


For example, if I saw a 500 word fic from nolagal on the list, I'd claim as follows:

LJ Username: snarkyscorp 
Author/Artist LJ Username: nolagal 
Claim: 1 500 word fic
Price: $3

Q. What if I want to claim more than one thing?


A. Submit each claim separately using the format above. Try to keep your claims to 3 or less so that everyone has a chance to claim what they want. :)

Q. What happens after I claim something?

A. After submitting your claim(s), go and donate the amount to the cause of your choice. We recommend four different organizations (see our LJ Userinfo or below), but you aren't limited to those. Please donate to the Equal Rights campaign of your choice.

Once you've donated, send a receipt of your donation to snarkyscorp@gmail.com so I can approve.

Q. How much does everything cost?

A. Unless otherwise noted, fic costs are as follows:

100 words = $1 per fic
500 words = $3 per fic
750 words = $5 per fic
1000 words = $8 per fic
3500 words = $10 per fic
5000 words = $15 per fic
10000 words = $25 per fic

Art, trinkets, and knitted items are priced at the participant's discretion.

Q. Where can I donate?

A. Here are the four organizations we suggest, but if you have one that's not listed, please feel free to run it by a mod so you can support the cause. We're trying to limit this community to Equal Marriage Rights at the moment, but will likely open that up for more causes in the future.

InvalidateProp8
NoOnProp8
Lambda Legal
Marriage Equality USA

Q. How long do I have to make a donation?


A. You may take no longer than 48 hours. If you need to make arrangements beyond this, please message one of the mods for approval. If we haven't received your receipt within 48 hours, your claim will be back up for grabs.

Q. Is there a limit to how much I can donate?

A. Heavens, no!! If you are able to donate more than the allotted suggestion, please do. :) That said, I'd like to keep claims to 3 or less so that everyone has a fair chance to get the fics and drawings they want.

Q. I want to write, draw, or offer a prize! How do I do that?

A. Post your application here at any time! Your offering(s) will be added to the next weekly post.

Q. How much can I offer?

A. As much as you want! We have folks offering a ton of fics and trinkets and others who just don't have time but were able to commit to 2 or 3 things. We will take any and everything we can get, so the more you can offer, the better!

Q. How long do I have to give my prize to the winning claimer?

A. Once the person who claimed your prize is confirmed, they'll contact you to work out any further details (like pairings, kinks, story ideas, etc). From there, you have up to 3 months to complete your prize unless otherwise stated in your application. If you are having trouble meeting your deadline, please message one of the mods immediately.

Q. What can I offer to hpequality ?</lj>

A. Everything! We have fics, art, trinkets, and knitted items being offered at the moment, but if you have other ideas (t-shirts, shoes, stickers, plushies, etc) please don't hesitate to offer them.

Q. I have more questions; who can I talk to?

A. Contact snarkyscorp, nolagal, or _aurora_sky_ with any/all questions.
