ATTENTION LUCY LAWLESS FANS: Okay well it's September and you know what that means - it's Starship's Spring Clean! Lucy has donated something for the auction. If you all remember what we did last year with Lucy's Xena robe - the auction was on two sites - the TradeMe site for Australian and New Zealand bidders and AUSXIP Charity site for everyone else.
Starship and Lucy would like everyone to have the opportunity to bid so once again I've become the proxy bidder on the Trademe site for everyone who bids on the AUSXIP site. It worked out really well last year. I can't tell you what Lucy donated UNTIL Monday but I can tell you - you are going to LOVE it. Guaranteed you will love it.
Recently I had to upgrade the software on the AUSXIP Charity Auction site but with the upgrade came the wipe out of everyone’s registrations. You will need to register again http://charity.ausxip.com/register.php
