U2 photo auction for African Well Fund ending soon @ 12:55 pm

spicedrum:
About half of the photo auctions are still running in the African Well Fund Build A Well For Bono's Birthday drive. They're set to end in one minute increments over the next almost-hour, so if you want to get in a last minute bid, head on over and get your bid in quick!

Or if you want to donate and not get caught up in the ebay frenzy, I'm pretty sure AWF is happy to take "regular" donations. =)

ETA: The auction's over and it raised lots of money. As one of the people who donated photos, I personally want to say thanks to everybody who placed a bid. You're all awesome!

And as a WARNING, I have heard that apparently there are people out there sending fraudulent emails to losing bidders, falsely claiming to be from AWF and notifying the losing bidders that they are now the default winner of the auction, all in hopes of collecting money.

I'm never surprised at how despicable some people can be, but it always makes me sad.

AWF sure does take regular donations. :)

I went that route since I did not have the energy or moolah to go and bid in the photo auctions. Either way, it all goes to the same great cause. :D

And I hope you were able to get the photo(s) you bidded on.

I did win one of the photos - the really cool one of them getting ready to exit the Lemon, with Edge at the top of the stairs. I was outbid on another, but I can't be bitter because someone paid good money to AWF for that picture.



(Okay, I'm just a little bitter. *g*)

hee!

No, I don't think so.

Even if it were, though, no worries! Money for a good cause, AND I won the Lemon photo, which I love SO MUCH. Not just for the boys being in it, either. The composition is ridiculous in its perfection, and there's this tiny little reflection of red light on the bottom of the Lemon that I love love love. (Tiny details are my obsession.)

I fell asleep half an hour before the end of the auction (damn time zones) and missed a couple of things I wanted, but nevermind, it all went for good prices.
