Association of Animal Artists Postcard Auction for the BBCTRead more ...
The Association of Animal Artists create art with a purpose, and every year we select an animal charity to support through exhibition sales and member events through the year.
This year our chosen charity is the Bumblebee Conservation Trust.
The Bumblebee Conservation Trust was established because of serious concerns about the ‘plight of the bumblebee’.
In the last 80 years our bumblebee populations have crashed. Two species have become nationally extinct and several others have declined dramatically.
Bumblebees are familiar and much-loved insects that pollinate our crops and wildflowers, so people are rightly worried.
The AAA are holding an online auction to raise as much money as we can to help the BBCT.
If you would like to bid on one of the postcards below follow the link and place your bid.
The auction will end on the 30th October 2019 and the successful bids will be contacted via email.
Good luck and thank you for helping us to support our Charity of The Year 2019.
Please go to www.bumblebeeconservation.org to find out more about bumblebees and how you can help protect their future!
1. You enter the absolute maximum that you are willing to bid for an item.
2. jumblebee places a bid on your behalf, using the minimum amount required to make you the highest bidder, i.e. current bid price plus bid increment OR the reserve price, if there is one and it can be covered by your proxy bid.
3. jumblebee continues to bid on your behalf, whenever you are outbid by another member's bid, until your maximum bid is exceeded or the auction is won.
4. jumblebee will notify you by email if your maximum bid is outbid by another member and provided the auction is still running, you will then have a chance to enter a new maximum bid if you wish.
The current bid on an auction item is £100. The minimum increment is £10. You enter a bid of £150 (your maximum bid).
Using your bid, but increasing only by the minimum increment, jumblebee sets the current bid to £110.
Another person bids £130 but they are immediately outbid by jumblebee bidding on your behalf and the current bid goes up to £140.
The auction finishes and you have won the auction item at a price of £140.
