Upcoming Auction Goodness

Are you excited about the auction yet? What auction? The first ever Real World Hero Charity Auction!

We’ve put together what we think is an impressive list of items to share with you, donated from many wonderful people and companies including: Melissa “War Witch” Bianco, Matt “Positron” Miller, Mercedes Lackey,  Things From Another World, Jones Soda, ThinkGeek and more.

Bidding begins on Wednesday, December 1st, but you can take an early look at the items on the auction block. Each item will be fully detailed with a photo and description before the bidding starts. What are you waiting for? Go take a peek.

2010 Real World Hero Charity Auction

A new addition to RWH this year, we hope the charity auction will spark interest within the City of heroes community and perhaps beyond. We’ve received many generous donations for the auction and more still on the way. If you are interested in donating an item to the auction please click here.

Here’s how our auction will work:

  • Auction bidding will open on Wednesday, December 1st, 2010 and conclude at 9:00pm PST (Midnight EST) on Saturday, December 18th, 2010.
  • View the auction items listed below. Each has a detail page with a photo of the item.
  • Place a bid by making a comment at the bottom of the page for that item. Be sure to include a valid email address for us to contact you if you have a winning bid.
  • Others may outbid you, so keep watching the comments until the auction ends.
  • After the auction closes, winning bids will be contacted via email with the good news and instructions.
  • Winners will be instructed to make a donation to their choice of one or more of our event charities totaling the amount of their winning bid WITHIN 3 DAYS and email their donation receipt(s) as proof of payment, allowing us to authorize shipment of the auction item they have won.
  • If an item winner fails to respond and/or confirm their proof of donation before the 3 day period expires, then the next highest bidder will be contacted as the new winner and they will receive the same 3 day period in which to make their donation, until the item is claimed by a paid bid.

Bidding ends tonight at Midnight Eastern Time (9:00pm Pacific)!

IMPORTANT NOTE: Winning bidders please wait for email instructions from Real World Hero on how to pay for the item(s) you have won.

Off to a Tremendous Start!

The charity drive is off to a tremendous start! In the first 24 hours we’ve already raised $772, as much as we raised in the first week last year! People are buzzing about the charities and Real World Hero to encourage involvement. It is absolutely thrilling to see such open support and giving. We already knew that our City of Heroes community is super (pun partially intended), but it is always so nice when we get to see it in action.

Our kick-off party last night was well attended with friends and supporters. Everyone is so excited to participate and spread the word. We spent time talking about the charities and all of the events that will be taking place over the next six weeks. We were paid a visit by one of our favorite red names, the Ocho (Mod08), who handed out gold titles to all in attendance (Thanks!). So, if you should see someone running around with “Ask me about Real World Hero” floating above their head you know what to do. Ask them! The titles are conversation starters and will help create awareness of the charity drive. And, yes, donors will have the opportunity to receive their own gold titles starting on Monday, November 29th.

We so glad everyone had a great time at the kick-off party. There is so much more to come, so stick around!

Preparing for RealWorldHero 2010

We had such a great experience during the first RealWorldHero drive. It was an unbelievable outpouring of generosity! Plans are well underway for the RealWorldHero 2010 charity drive. We are so pleased to welcome back the three charities sponsored last year as well as a new fourth one. This year we will be raising funds for Child’s Play, DonateGames, Operation Gratitude, and Heifer International. So exciting!

There are also several new things happening this year to help generate awareness of the drive and encourage participation.

  • We’re holding an auction right here on the website of some pretty nifty items.
  • A special Architect Entertainment mission arc is being prepared for fun and prizes.
  • and more…
  • So, find your cape and get ready for another round of heroic fun with Real World Hero!
