Australian Relief Puzzle Auction
Hey all! This is one of those 'other puzzle related ramblings' posts, but as I'm sure you'll agree after reading it that it is well worth mentioning.
As many of you will already know, Australia's Great Barrier Reef and the people who are living there have become the victims of both Cyclone Yasi and terrible flooding within the space of a single week.
In order to provide aid to the victims of this disaster many of the best puzzle designers, craftsmen and collectors have come together to donate some amazing pieces, some of which you are unlikely to see for sale again in the near future (if at all). This includes puzzles from the 'Stickman' series by Robert Yarger, Stephen Chin, Lee Krasnow and there are likely to be quite a few more added before the auction close date.
All of the money made from the sale of these items will go to helping out people in need in Australia. You will even find that sellers will likely cover the shipping cost as well!
These items are currently being listed on the puzzle auction site PUZZLE PARADISE. Auction items are still being added, and they will continue to be until the close of the auction on 12th of March 2011.
The auction will officially run from the 5th of March until the 12th of March. If you have any puzzles that you would be willing to donate to this cause, or if you want to find some more information on it, then head over to the Puzzle Paradise site. And even if you don't have any puzzles to donate then it would be great if you would consider generously bidding on the items that are there.
Remember that all of the money is going to a very worthy cause!
Thank you, and happy puzzling!
