I'm not sure how to word it or if its an idea people will person_without_enough_empathy about.
Any ideas? I am leaning towards an auction, rather that a straight sales thread.


Would be good to wait for VCC? Personally, I don't pay much attention till VCC, but who knows?

You have to give the guy credit though. Most people overstate what GPA is, then pretend to sell for that same amount. This guy quoted GPA and proceeded to blatantly ask for a lot more. lol


To be fair, GPA is what someone else paid for the book -- not something writ in stone from the mount.



Higher prices happen because someone pays a higher price.


True enough, though it appears it won't happen in this particular case! \:D


unless someone pops it on Clink for $1650


Exact same book?



lol

When you're going ahead with the sales thread (or auction) list your donation conditions in your first post. (Of course mention the charity bit in your title as well)

Make sure that what you donate is clear. ie. don't put "Somewhere along the line of 10% if the sale brings in $1,000 and 25% if it brings in $2,000."

I will donate 10% of the books sold, to The Hero Initiative. If these sales totals reach $2000, I will bump up my donation to 25%. This is for a good cause. We can make a difference together, folks, so don't hold back. \(thumbs u

No one should bltch if you are clear.

Lastly, once the sale is final and you've made your donation to the Hero Initiative. Please provide proof in your thread that you did make that donation. \:\) That shouldn't be taken as a question of your word or ethical behaviour, it's just a necessary part of being transparent, especially when raising money for charities are involved.

I'd add to the beginning statement that you are going to be making the donation, not the buyer.

Sometimes people get confused about that.
