Split This Rock's auction items, to be auctioned off at a party at Busboys and Poets Thursday night, have been generating so much excitement that we've decided to open the bidding to email bids. So, even if you live in Maine, or have to work Thursday night, you can still bid.
Here's how it's going to work. Peruse the list of auction items detailed below. Choose what you'd like to bid on and send us an email at info [at] splitthisrock [dot] org. Please include the following information: Name, email address, phone number, which item or items you're bidding on, starting bid, and final bid (that is, the highest you are willing to go.)
We will appoint a proxy for you at the party who will bid on your behalf. We will contact you after the party only if you are the winning bidder. If two people send the same final bid for the same item, we will contact them both before the party to see if either wants to go higher. So please check your email frequently between now and 6 pm on Thursday.
That's it! Send your bids today and help support Split This Rock, your national network of socially engaged poets.
