Want to Offer Something in Con or Bust’s Auction?

Originally published at Con or Bust by Kate Nepveu. Please comment there ( comment(s)).

Want to help Con or Bust assist fans of color/non-white fans to attend SFF cons? One major way is to offer something in Con or Bust’s annual online auction, which is its main source of funds.

Bidding on this year’s auction starts Monday, February 10, 2014, but you can offer things for auction starting now! Some things people have offered in the past are books, character naming rights, delicious homemade food, editing services, care packages from their hometown, jewelry, and knitted goods, but you’re encourage to offer any good or service that you think someone might enjoy (and that is legal, practical, and morally and ethically appropriate).

You can learn more about submitting items for auction, or go straight to the submit an auction page: all you need is an email address. And if you’re not in a position to offer something, it would also be incredibly helpful if you’d spread the word!
