Auctions for Lifelites

Read more ...

Lifelites donates specialist technologies for around 10,000 terminally ill and disabled babies, children and young people using every children’s hospice services across the British Isles. These packages enable the children to play, be creative, control something for themselves and communicate - often for the first time. Their conditions mean that many of the children have limited mobility and reduced dexterity and some cannot communicate in traditional ways. 

Lifelites specialist iPad packages have apps that give children the opportunity to join in with creative activities like music and painting. The Magic Carpet gives them experiences they wouldn’t otherwise have to fly a plane, splash in the sea or play football with their brothers and sisters and Eyegaze, an eye tracking device, means they can tell their carers what they would like to eat or drink and can even, for the first time, tell their parents they love them. It means that these children can stay involved with the world around them for as long as it is possible.

The hospices do not pay anything towards their project and all of Lifelites’ work is funded by donations: the equipment, ongoing technical support and training at each hospice costs Lifelites around £50,000 over four years.

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.
