Community description:Fandom auction to support sex education
What is this?

This community is a fandom auction where people can offer to write original and fandom works, make art, bake, make crafts, share skills, etc. in exchange for donations to to support the incredible sex education website Scarleteen.

Scarleteen has been the premier online sexuality resource for young people worldwide since 1998. Countless members of various fandoms have used information from Scarleteen when making fanworks, as well as in our own lives.

Scarleteen has consistently provided free inclusive, comprehensive and supportive sex education, information and support to millions of young people every year.

What you might not know is that Scarleteen is the highest ranked online young adult sexuality resource but also one of the least funded and that the youth who need them most are also the least able to donate. You might not know that they have done all they have with a budget typically lower than the median annual household income in the U.S. You might not know they have provided the services they have to millions without any federal, state or local funding and that they are fully independent, grassroots media which depends on public support to survive and grow.

How does it work?
To offer: Comment on this post with your username, fandoms (if applicable), what you're offering, your starting bid, and your limits. Link to examples of your work if you want. Fill out the following form for each thing you're offering (e.g. if I'm sending two packages of cookies, I post this form in two seperate comments.)
To bid: When you see an offer you like, reply to the comment bidding at least the lowest amount in USD (you can use this currency converter). When the auction closes January 23, 2012 and you've won, make your donation to Scarleteen and send confirmation (still finding out how this will work). Then they make/send you something! It's that easy!
