On August 23, 2017, Hurricane Harvey hit land and caused record flooding in southeastern Texas, USA. I waited to see if the [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid community would put up a post, but it has not happened as of today. Hence, [personal profile] rscreighton and I are creating a [livejournal.com profile] fandomaid-esque fundraiser to help those affected by the storm. The hurricane has wreaked havoc on southeast Texas and is now making its way through Louisiana.

Your donations will help people with supplies, finding homes, helping animals affected, and treating injuries. There will be ‘buy it now’, ‘auction’ and 'custom request' options available. Once your fanwork is completed, consider posting it in the AO3 collection Harvey_Fanaid.

CLOSING DATE: The closing date for this campaign will be: 11:59PM EST (i.e. New York) on Saturday, September 30th.

September 30 is the last day that we will run this campaign. Auctions will close, Buy It Nows will be frozen, and we will stop taking new offers/requests. Thank you to everyone participating. This community would not exist without your contributions. ♥

UPDATE: Someone asked if [personal profile] rscreighton and I will extend the dates of this fundraiser in the wake of Hurricane Irma. The answer is no. However, if you would like to recommend Irma charities to the Donation Options page, we will happily add them.

IMPORTANT LINKS (will be added as created):
- Sign up or bid: AUCTION STYLE
- Sign up or buy: BUY IT NOW STYLE
- Request or offer: CUSTOM REQUESTS
- Questions/Comments
- Donation Options and Instructions

Okay! So what if we wanted to offer up the same thing (ex:podfic) but like of different lengths (ex:5-10k vs 30k+)? Still one post, or multiple posts?? :D

Um, both posts say buy it now style. I think you have a typo?

Ha! Ok, that explains why it was fixed when I went to find links.

We can specify fandoms and things like "gen only" I assume?

Hey, so, this is great! I'm glad you're doing it. But as a native Houstonian I have to say the emphasis on Houston as Beyonce's hometown is....really weird and kind of upsetting. There are ~7 million people in the Greater Houston Area. My parents, siblings, and friends might not be pop culture power houses but I think they're pretty important too. This is all leaving aside the utter devastation in Rockport and Port Aransas and the fact that it's still raining and the waters are still rising in southeast Texas and southwest Louisiana. I urge you to reconsider your wording.

From: [personal profile] independence1776
For the minimum bid requirements, is it possible to have a minimum bid amount rather than a dollar per hundred words? The latter doesn't work for me; I'm having a nightmare of someone winning the auction with a triple digit donation and having to write a novella or novel.

Also, I'm slightly confused: is Sept. 30 the last day to sign up to offer something or the last day the auction is running?

Awesome!

Good to hear (and I didn't dare to underestimate how much work this is); I just needed to know how quickly I had to put an auction up.
