Can someone explain something to me though. Arent people making pretty pennies off of these auctions by using charity in the name? MOST of these auctions are 10%. So say something goes for $300, the person selling it is getting $270 (way over retail right?) and the charity is getting $30? Isnt that a TAD sad to anyone? Im sure Ill get WAAAAY flamed for this, but I was just wondering if I was right or if Im smokin crack and things are going differentely than I have imagined. LOL
You shouldn't get flamed for saying what's on your mind! BUT I have seen A LOT of auctions that state something along the lines of this... "If the final sale price exceeds the true retail value, then the amount donated will increase to..... (whatever the increase is). I know lots of FF mamas have taken that concept into consideration hence bumping up the percentage donated if the auction goes higher or above retail. I also know some wahmamas plan to donate more than the auction says. I know personally, I will contact the buyer an let them know exactly what was donated. OH and some are doing 100% (some of them are doing numerous 100%) so having five 100% and a few 10 or 25% is ok in my eyes! HTH!
