I have for you two lists of auctions: first, auctions with two or fewer bids; and second, auctions that have more than two bids but nevertheless seem to have attracted less attention than I would have expected. Why not take a look at these lists and see if you've overlooked something of interest?

I don't understand: have we raised 60% of the 12k goal, or have the potential bids reached 60% of the 12k goal?

Then-current high bids + a handful of straight-up donations = 60%. Sorry to be unclear.
