....the official let's-kick-off-the-Chicago-TARDIS-charity-auction blog post.
Every year, I organize a charity auction at the largest Doctor Who convention in the midwest to benefit Northern Illinois Food Bank. Although we do hold a food drive, the bulk of our efforts go towards raising funds for the Food Bank, which serves organizations in the western suburbs.
How can you support us? Here are a few ideas:
- If you're planning on attending Chicago TARDIS, consider signing up to bid on our silent and live auction. It's fast, easy, and you can do it online;
- Consider donating an item - we usually take a variety of items (see last year's post for ideas), and you can sign up to donate via this online form;
- Head to http://bit.ly/ChiTARDISAuction and make a donation - just indicate "2016 Chicago TARDIS Auction" in the comments and e-mail your receipt to firstname.lastname@example.org; and/or
- Forward this very post via social media. (Or, if you want something a little more "official", consider last year's Chicago Now post)
Every year, we've raised over $2,600....and we can do better. So please, Internet, let's make this a banner year!
