Buy A Used Shirt for Hurricane Victims!

UPDATE: No bids. C'mon, folks. It's not really about the shirt, is it?

Due to my intense (and totally justified, thanks) hatred of eBay, I'm going to hold an informal 'auction' here..

This is a promotional T-Shirt with an Arri Lighting logo. The only way to get one of these is to rent (or buy) a shitload of lights from Arri.

It's a black, adult size L (men's size, not 'baby tee' size) Haynes "beefy T".

Despite my joke about a used shirt, it's actually not ever been worn (An adult size L is WAY too big for me).

The logo on the front's been embroidered. Here's a close up:

Here's the back:

Here's how I'm going to work this.

You email (randomblogmail [at] yahoo dot com) me your 'bid' and tell me which charity it'll be going to (I'm suggesting the Red Cross, but if there's one out there that I haven't heard of, tell me about it), and the highest 'bid' between now and 8pm tomorrow night (which is about when I'll be getting home from work) wins the shirt.

You email me proof of your donation, and I'll send ya the shirt.

If I get a decent response from this, I'll do another one.

I have zero interest in the shirt (a man's large is too big for me too) but I have a twist to suggest. As you may or may not know, anything contributed via John Roger's blog, through his paypal link will be doubled by him. Might I suggest that you take the bids via email, and then have the "winner" donate through www.kfnokey.com ? Mr. Rogers is able to see who donated and in what amount via his Paypal account. I'm fairly certain that he wouldn't mind helping in this. His charity for this month is the American Red Cross.
Just a thought... thanks for reading!

That's not a bad idea at all!

Glad you like the idea.

Now, if only I would learn to proofread before posting! GAH!
