Reminder: You can still donate to win prizes at Helping Haiti Heal (benefiting Partners in Health) until 11:59 tonight. Let's look at the new things they've added:

Guitar owned and signed by Tom Felton (Draco Malfoy)!
Donated by: Tom Felton

A hardback Deathly Hallows signed by the entire cast of the film!
"A truly special item: Evanna Lynch (who plays Luna Lovegood) is going to take a Deathly Hallows onto the set of the film and have everyone she can find sign it. We will update this listing when we have definite names, but you should expect all the main actors! A wonderful and personal gift from the original believer in Nargles!"

Genuine Radish Earrings and Phoenix Pin!
Donated by: Evanna Lynch
Another very special gift from Evanna Lynch, who plays Luna Lovegood in the Harry Potter films! Evanna will make you or someone you love a very special, unique set of radish earrings or a phoenix pin. Evanna's designs, made well before she was cast as the sage Ravenclaw, have become part of the films and are now currently mass-produced and sold, but this special gift will come from the original designer's hands. Earrings from the REAL Luna. AWESOME!

Ring from UNDERWORLD: EVOLUTION!
Donated by: Noble Collection
An authentic ring used in the movie UNDERWORLD - don't miss the chance to win a verified prop that would otherwise sell for thousands!
[My note: Noble Collection is the company that makes the really expensive replica stuff. This is not a replica.]

SIRIUS BLACK sketch by JOHN K SNYDER III
Donated by: John K Snyder, III



(Sketch compared to original poster)

35 SIGNED YA NOVELS!
Donated by: The 2009 Debutantes
[My note: This is, in fact, a single prize package.]

And my signed copy of Movies in Fifteen Minutes (again: paperback, because I don't have any more hardcovers) is here. Other authors on that lot include Lev Grossman, Maureen Johnson, Rosemary Clement-Moore, and Lilith Saintcrow. And there are actual metric shitloads more of things to win on the list. You do have to donate separately on each section to be entered for the prizes therein, if that makes any sense. (They ended up with that setup so that people wouldn't end up with really rare/valuable/personalized prizes they didn't actually want. There's still an element of chance on other lots, but that way, if you're not a Terry Pratchett fan, for example, you're not going to end up with a copy of Unseen Academicals signed to you. This means that you may have to make some tough choices as to where you do want to donate, but that was the reasoning.)

Speaking of which, let's review some other prizes:

ONE FULL SET OF U.K. HARRY POTTER BOOKS SIGNED BY J.K. ROWLING plus HANDWRITTEN CARD
donated by J.K. Rowling


Signed copy of HARLEQUIN VALENTINE by Neil Gaiman
donated by Neil Gaiman

Five lots of one signed and DEDICATED copy of UNSEEN ACADEMICALS by Sir Terry Pratchett (VERY RARE!)
donated by Sir Terry Pratchett

Sir Terry Pratchett's WINTERSMITH, signed by the author on the title page (1st ed)
donated by Colin Smythe

Signed TIGERHEART by Peter David
donated by Peter David

Signed graphic novel SIR APROPOS OF NOTHING comic series
donated by Peter David

Signed poster from THE GUILD, featuring cast in "Do You Want to Date My Avatar" outfits: Full cast!
donated by Knights of the Guild Podcast 


Meanwhile, Helping Haiti Heal Continues on Livestream Today at 2pm EST.

I WANT THE EARRINGS OR PIN!! :D i donated a few times in hopes of getting them.

jk, I just wanted to synchronise screaming icons.

Also here to say how cool Evanna Lynch is. As if the younger cast members of Harry Potter hadn't already proven themselves to be lovely, well-adjusted people!

Evanna Lynch (who plays Luna Lovegood) is going to take a Deathly Hallows onto the set of the film and have everyone she can find sign it.

That's incredibly adorable.

Miss Lynch is so very awesome.

Wow, there is too much awesome in this post. Something about Evanna's donations make me feel all mushy inside.

(...) if you're not a Terry Pratchett fan (...)

Is that even possible?

Anyway, Evanna Lynch has proved yet again to be the most awesome thing ever happened to this ol' crazy world.

Holy cow, if I had money, I'd be all over pretty much every single prize. Not only the Harry Potter stuff (although wow, Evanna Lynch is amazing), but the Underworld ring (I love those movies) and the Neil Gaiman story and your book and so on.

Oh my God, I'm all over the Tannis ring like white on fucking rice!

I <3 Evanna Lynch! She is amazing! It is so awesome how many things she is personally doing for Haiti.

Also, it looks like they've extended the donation period to February 6 at 11:59PM. Which is awesome in that they will get more money, but makes me antsy because I have to wait longer to see if I won the lot I entered in.. Even though I'm trying not to get my hopes up, as it's such a long shot!

Ditto on all counts. I thought I just made a last-minute donation now. The longer deadline will probably tempt me to donate again, probably one of the lots I already donated in, to increase my chances. They're clever, they are. :)

Okay, I entered for the True Blood gift bag before, and I just last-minute entered for the Peter David set and a set of books. **fingers crossed**

i'm not entirely clear on how this works...

what's clear is:
1. this is not a "you bid- you automatically get it". you bid on one item and then there a ruffle in that item with your name on it.

so there is the chance one bids on something and ends up not getting it. that's fine considering all the money goes to an extremely worthy cause.

what i don't understand is this:
You MUST choose as many boxes as gifts for which you wish to be eligible. You may multiply your donation so that you are more likely to receive an item that you feel you would enjoy the most.

so if one wants to have more chances to receive a particular thank you gift one has to bid on more than one thing?

because i have my eyes on the luna earrings/phoenix pin only. (at first i was going to go for that and the ALL Cast signed copy of DH. but anything above $100 is something i can't do.

so anyone understands this better than i do?

Re: i'm not entirely clear on how this works...

Well, what that means is, you "bid"/donate with the Luna earrings/phoenix box, that's what you're entered for. If you also want to be entered for, say, a signed book, you'll have to donate "on" that lot, you know?
