Tsunami Disaster Relief Charity Auction
January 2005 - Action-HQ.com has passed along information about a charity auction they are holding:
I belive that we've all heard about the recent Tsunami Disaster.
One of the 4th largest earthquake this century, rated around 9.0 on the Richter scale, struck Indonesia on Monday December 27th. It created 30 ft Tsunami (tidal waves) that swept through South East Asia and even as far reaching Africa, totaling 11 countries, causing the death of over 100,000+. This does not include the many whom have lost their homes and livelihood, and the probable outbreak of disease due to poor sanitation. You can read more about this on any news website.
Action-HQ and Tak Li / Hyperchild would like to assist in this disaster relief by auctioning off 2 Hong Kong limited edition gold Spiderman statuettes. Only 200 pcs were made and they are "not for sale" and available only through promotion. Each is numbered on the bottom of the base.
We hope with your help and that of your readers, and ebay/collectors community, we can raise a good amount and donate 100% of the proceeds to Red Cross HK.
Just for your information, we are unable to launch a charity auction as it is all funneled through ebay's MissionFish. They only accept companies based in the US and we are a Hong Kong company. You will notice that in the actual ebay auction, we have not mentioned this is for charity as they have restrictions on all declared charity auctions.
