Esme's Awesome Arty Auction

Read more ...

So... I felt a bit guilty making a fundraiser for this. There are many urgent causes out there, whilst I’m here trying to raise funds to attend my dream college. I figured if people get something in return it’s not as if I’m pretending to be a charity... so here’s the deal.


 For the last few years it has been my dream to go to a UWC, or more specifically, Atlantic College. UWC is a group of Colleges around the world that mixes students from all continents, all life experiences. Their mission is to create global citizens that strive to unite the world for a peaceful and sustainable future. The education they offer is unique and inspiring, it’s an amazing movement, worth having a google.


 So last year I went through the lengthy application and assessment process, but there was no way we could imagine finding the full fees that were in their terms of acceptance. I tried again this year. I was more ready. I came out of the process more confident, and sure enough they offered me a very generous bursary... I was elated, however we still can’t afford it on our own.


 It’s an incredible opportunity to be selected, especially twice, out of all the hopefuls that applied. Few people are lucky enough to have this chance.


 I am intent not to throw this opportunity away. It’s so amazing to see my dreams of being part of this incredible movement almost within reach... 


So if you fancy helping me manifest this dream of mine into full-on, in-your-face-reality,  or just fancy some cool art,  I would be so grateful. I’m almost there...thank you very, very much,

 Esme. <3

When bidding on an auction item, if you enter more than the minimum increment for an item then your bid will be used for proxy bidding. This is how it works:
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.
For example:
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.
