If you happen to be a photographer (or know of one) I am going to be in an auction and you can bid on 90 minutes of my time plus some other goodies. This is to raise money for Thirst Relief International http://www.thirstrelief.org/
Last year this same auction was held and they raised $25,000. I'm really excited to be a part of this event.
Here's the details....Mentoring sessions will go up for bid on an auction at http://www.fotoverite.com/joomla/index.php
. The auction site will have mentoring sessions posted with details about the session and a link to the auction. Bidders will need to register in order to place a bid on the mentoring session. The auction that's being set up has an end time. However, when the auction time is supposed to close, if there is a bidding war happening over a mentoring session then the auction will stay open until the bidding war ends. This is very important feature of the auction.
Last year, the huge success of the WPPI Thirst Relief Benefit came because each mentor posted on their blog and in their newsletters about their mentoring session. Mentors put links to their auction on their blog. Important that bidders know the auction will not close if there is a bidding war over a mentoring session.
The auction will take place for three days from February 9-February 12th. Auctions will end on the 12th (unless a mentoring session is having a bidding war…in which case the auction will end when people stop bidding). Once the auction closes, the bidder who won a mentoring session will need to go to www.thirstrelief.org and make a donation for the amount that they won the session with. When they are making their donation they will need to enter the mentors name in the "on behalf of" space so that it shows up as a contribution made for the WPPI Thirst Relief Benefit.
When it's time for the auction to go live I'll post a link to my auction.
