Auction PoliciesCollapse )

Tiaras4Tatas Needs Your Help!

The ladies of tiaras4tatas have a favor to ask of our dear followers:

tatasblacklogo


Our team and mission were conceived of while having what was probably one too many Cosmos at last year’s Shore Leave Convention. But in spite of its inebriated origins the team and its purpose – to raise funds in support of the Susan G. Komen Foundation – are both sound and very dear to our hearts.

To pay homage to fandom – which really, is what brought not only us but the team together in the first place – beginning on MONDAY MAY 16th we will be holding a series of auctions of various fannish items to help raise funds for the tiaras4tatas team, such as t-shirts and postcards signed by the casts of BSG, Star Trek, True Blood, Warehouse 13, and Firefly. We’ll also be auctioning some signed books, signed prints and the chance to commission fanworks (fic, vids, icons, banners) from members of the team.

So, why am I telling you all this and what is this favor of which I speak?

To have a successful auction, you need bidders. And both myself and my fellow teammates want this auction to be as successful as possible thereby raising as much $$$ as possible on behalf of the Susan G. Komen Foundation.

Which is why I am asking everyone on my flist to take a moment and let your flists know about the auction and our efforts. Encourage them to watch the comm, follow us on Twitter (@tiaras4atas) or to simply make a donation to the team. More importantly, ask them to tell their flists about the team and our auction and then they can tell their...well, you get the idea.

I’ve even put together some code you can use to post a logo banner that will link directly to either the team donation site:



or the LJ comm:




Thanks in advance for your help in getting the word out!!



- Although it is clear that age, gender and lifetime exposure to estrogen play an important role, the direct causes of breast cancer are not yet fully understood.

- Women who are physically inactive throughout life may have an increased risk of breast cancer. Being active may help reduce risk.

- A woman’s chance of developing breast cancer increases if her mother, sister, and/or daughter have been diagnosed.

- The most significant risk factors for breast cancer are gender (being a woman) and age (growing older).

- Caucasian women are more likely to get breast cancer than women of any other racial or ethnic group; African American women are more likely to die from breast cancer than any other ethnic or racial group.

- About 5-10% of breast cancers are caused by inherited gene mutations.

For those of you who don’t know, our fellow Tata zinke (in other words, me!) will be ringing in the New Year on the Antarctic Continent.

No, really. She is.

And while it might not be the right Pole to go visiting Santa Claus, there are penguins, seals, whales, glaciers and all manner of amazing things to see. Andrew Denton put it best when he said:
If Antarctica were music it would be Mozart. Art, and it would be Michelangelo. Literature, and it would be Shakespeare. And yet it is something even greater; the only place on earth that is still as it should be. May we never tame it.


And now zinke is offering to send a personalized picture postcard from the bottom of the world to the first ten people who comment to this post pledging to donate at least $10 to Team tiaras4tatas.

This is how it works: If you would like to receive a photo postcard from zinke leave a comment below (all comments will be screened) that includes your name, e-mail addy, the amount of your donation and any other message you might have for us (we‘re social like that *g*).

Commenting will remain open until this Saturday December 18th, 2010 at 5pm, after which we will contact the lucky ten to make donation arrangements. Donations must be made to the Team Tiaras4Tatas Donation Website by no later than Tuesday December 22nd, 2010. All picture postcards will be sent digitally to the recipients upon zinke’s return, as apparently the penguins do not have much of a need for reliable WiFi.

And with that…COMMENTING IS NOW OPEN! Tis’ the season so please, be generous!


ETA: Commenting is now closed. THANK YOU so much for your generosity! Thanks to you this little venture has raised over $200 for the Komen Foundation!
