As FFANZ delegate one of my responsibilities is to raise funds to ensure that next year’s delegate is able to make the trip from New Zealand. A traditional way to do this is holding fan fund auctions at various cons through the year.
I always feel bad about asking people for stuff, but I am looking for donations of items and services from the spec fic community to be auctioned off. I thought rather than contact people directly–and put them in the awkward position of having to say no!–I would start by sending this out publicly so that people who would like to contribute can do so.
Some ideas for things that would be awesome to offer for sale:
- signed books
- “tuckerisations” – offering the chance for someone to be written into a story or book
- critiques by established authors
But, I am open to other suggestions. You can contact me via social media, email or via the feedback form here.
If you are able to help, or can signal boost this, it would be greatly appreciated–thank you!
