2016 AUSXIP 20th Anniversary Charity Auction Tentative Totals & A Word of Thanks!

ImageWow what an exciting and exhilarating day this has been! I'm totally buggered but I've been crunching numbers and it has perked me right up. We have some tentative totals (tentative in the case that people may have donated instead of bid, people rounding up (they do that A LOT) when paying for their items). These are the raw figures and they have BLOWN. ME. AWAY.

Today has been an awesome way to celebrate 20 years of my baby!
Part 1 of the big bash celebrating AUSXIP's 20th Anniversary happened in March. That was a tiny auction and that raised
$2995 NZD

Part 2 was the Mother of all AUSXIP Auctions and that has raised...
$14,067.58 NZD

Plus I donated all my royalties from my coloring books and the AUSXIP Merchandise Store for all of 2016 - $1000 NZD

Grand total (NZD) is: $18,062.58

In the last ten years (2006 being the 1st Starship auction and AUSXIP's 10th Birthday) we have raised $173,062 for Starship. Doesn't that just blow your mind?
Roger and myself started the first auction - that was a rollercoaster ride - Renee's autographed items were supposed to be posted to Australia but they detoured to Austria instead of Australia and came back to me 1 day before the auction was to start...wwwwweeeee! Our first auction raised just over $8000. We were later joined by Lori Boyles for the last 3 auctions. I have such an awesome team. SERIOUSLY awesome, dedicated team.

Starship have gone to great lengths to help us by making the process SO EASY. These people are INCREDIBLE.

Lastly...all of you. I can't begin to tell you how much support has been given to this auction by all of you. Whether you donated, bid, you won or you spread the word. It's truly inspiring and I'm touched by your generosity and your love. A love for what Xena Warrior Princess has been about and continues to be 21 years later. An incredible fandom that is just EXTRAORDINARY in it's power and heart.

Image636169514157331819"ASH VS EVIL DEAD EPISODE 210: “SECOND COMING”

Airdate: December 11th at 8:00 PM ET/PT

Ash, Ruby, and Kelly battle the past to get to a future where Pablo is alive and the world is safe from evil, but the family from hell has other plans. Baal and Ash engage in an old fashioned brawl to save humanity and banish them back to hell.

“Ash vs Evil Dead,” a 10-episode half-hour series, is the long-awaited follow-up to the classic horror film, The Evil Dead.

The second season roars back into action with Ash leaving his beloved Jacksonville and returning to his hometown of Elk Grove, Michigan. There, he confronts Ruby. The former enemies have to form an uneasy alliance as Elk Grove soon becomes the nucleus of evil.

The cast is led by Bruce Campbell (Evil Dead, “Burn Notice”) in the role of Ash Williams; Lucy Lawless (“Salem,” “Spartacus”) as Ruby Knowby, who now possesses the powerful Necronomicon; Ray Santiago (“Touch,” Meet the Fockers) as Pablo Simon Bolivar, Ash’s loyal sidekick dealing with the trauma he suffered in the cabin; and Dana DeLorenzo (A Very Harold & Kumar 3D Christmas) as Kelly Maxwell, who, grief-stricken after the death of her parents, plots revenge against The Evil Dead. Lee Majors (Do You Believe), Ted Raimi (“Xena: Warrior Princess,” Spider-Man) and Michelle Hurd (“Law & Order: SVU”) join the series this year as Brock Williams, Ash’s father, Chet Kaminski, Ash’s childhood best friend, and Linda, Ash’s high school love respectively."
