AUSXIP Starship Foundation Auction Update: my face hurts from smiling so much. The tentative total (tentative because there may be some late donations directly to Starship or people rounding up (which happens often) is in US dollars first and then the converted rate since we are converting to New Zealand dollars:
Total Amount Raised (tentatively) in USD = $19,320.03
Total Amount To Be Converted (tentatively) in NZD = $25,537.52
I'm blown away by these numbers. There are three of us in this auction team (myself, Roger and Lori) and I have to say on behalf of them – THANK YOU.
There is a lot of work involved but its worth it to see this reaction. I'm totally blown away. In the 9 years since we have been doing the auction, we have raised $136,847 for Starship. It wouldn't also be possible without Starship's support and their willingness to help us out by creating a way to make the process so easy for everyone.
So from the AUSXIP Starship Auction team,
Thank you to those who bid, to those who contributed and to those that won. That's $25,537.52 Starship did not have a week ago. Humbled and very proud of this fandom.
