Be Devious, Do Good Auction

Journal Entry: Mon Aug 9, 2010, 9:00 AM



The item on today's auction block is one 1 year subscription to deviant art.

How do you bid? Well, this is a different type of auction, so, there's a different way to bid.

Firstly, you're going to want to do something good for someone else. They can be a deviant, but they don't have to be. Then you're going to take pictures or provide some sort of proof of your "bid". You're going to leave your bids in the comments of this journal.

You bids have to have some kind of value to them. This will make it easier to gauge the current bid's price. So for instance, you can bid 5 pie slices to someone. This is 400 points or about 5 US dollars. Or you can bid a free commission to someone, which would be about 20 US dollars, right?

Also, the bigger the bids start to get, the more willing I am to add to the prize.

This auction will last for a week, ending at 12 PM EDT next monday.

I will start the bidding at 400 points (5 US dollars.)

Have fun, everyone.

And remember, in a world where it seems like everyone is being hateful or hurtful to others, do the devious thing and be good to each other.

EDIT:Also, I'd like to mention that all bids have to be legal. And the bids are done in such a way that you have to do them first before they count as bids, so, you can't just back out.

Happy fractaling!

there's got to be some kind of monetary value, or else it doesn't really count, also, I've got an announcement to make for the auction

Does it need to be something done specifically for this contest, or can it be something done recently but prior to your posting?

I kinda want it done just for this contest, so, I suppose on how recently it was.

Understandable. That's why I asked. :)
About 2 months ago I cut 17" off my hair and donated it to Locks of Love. They make wigs for children who have lost their hair due to disease.
I would do it again, but I don't think my hair will grow 17 inches in the next few days ;)

My daughter did that a couple of years ago. She was able to donate 12" of hair to Locks of Love too.

I'm actually donating soon! :#1:

But, I'm not sure that counts because of how long ago it was and the monetary value of that is questionable.
But I'm sure there's a little girl walking around with a beautiful head of hair :huggle:

Yay! It feels so good to donate all the extra hair! Cheers to you for donating, too!

I did it before like, four or so years ago. It was refreshing :D
I haven't been able to for while because the job I was at didn't allow guys to have long hair, because it was "nontraditional"

Does it have to involve money? Or can it be a donation in the way of pledging to click to donate to a fund for children or disaster victims? I don't have much money but found a site that I could click to donate to a child once a day, and it will track my donations. If I pledge to do so every day for the length of my subscription, would that be worthy?

You need to take pictures of it and post it here to count as a bid, how you'd provide a years worth of pictures before the week is over is beyond me, so, that as a bid is kind of impossible.
I appreciate the try though. :D
That's a particularly lovely gesture.

I don't know how you'd prove that.
You'd have to have pictures of it being in your sig for a month to count it as your bid.
So, I don't think that will work.
