The Virginia Avenue Project mentors Los Angeles children and teenagers, teaching classes in theatre and other arts, tutoring them in academics, and partnering with them to create and perform original plays.
100% of participating children graduate from high school. 90% go on to college. 85% are the first person in their family to go. Correction! From the Project: "The stats on the auction are outdated - new stats: 100% high school, 95% college and 98% first in the family..."
As grants for arts and education have been cut, we are in danger of losing our centerpiece program, the One-on-Ones, in which short plays are specially written for each kid to act in with a professional actor. We take them to summer camp to rehearse, then return to Los Angeles to put on a show.
This program changes kids’ lives... and it’s not happening this year unless we can raise $15,000 by mid-March.
The tag lists to the right of the main page, also to be found here, list everyone who is offering under "seller," the types of services and items under "offered," and the fandoms sorted by media (tv, movie, etc.)
Comment to an offered post with the amount of money you wish to bid, plus what you're bidding on if more than one service or item is offered.
If someone else raises the bid in a reply to your comment, bid again by replying to their reply with a higher offer.
This will continue until the auction closes and the highest bid wins.
There is also a "buy now" option. "Buy now" can be exercised with the first bid on an auction.
Once "Buy It Now" has been exercised, further bidding is not allowed.
If none of those work, you can Paypal Shellyvirginia [at] gmail.com.
Once you have donated, forward your email receipt to the person whose auction you have won, and comment to the post you bid on to confirm it. Thus we will be able to add up donations and let you all know how much money was raised. This is on the honor system, and we trust you to be honorable.
Offer: I will write fanfic of no less than 1000 words in the following fandoms: Supernatural, Gundam Wing, Swordspoint. I don't do Wincest or non-con, but am comfortable writing gen or shippy or pron, as you wish. I am also probably willing to write in any fandom I'm familiar with, but email me first if you want to make a special request.
Contact: My email is in my user info.
Delivery: I will have your story written by November 1.
You can still bid by manually signing your name and some sort of contact info. Selling will be more difficult. If you don't want to get a free LJ account for this purpose, please email the mods and we'll figure something out.
