Yeah sorry just don't think I can make it work this time. I offered to pay half the shipping on the last Red Cross fundraiser auction
Have to the leave the house by 8am Monday morning to catch a flight to Brazil. If anyone knows a way to do it I'm all ears. Won't have time to drop it off at FedEx/Purolator etc Monday morning so it would have to be packaged and either picked up by a parcel service on the weekend or dropped off. Not sure if these companies deal with overnight shipping on the weekend?

Anyways, unless someone has an idea of how it would work it'll have to remain local this time

I could. Not sure about the 3 week thing. I won't be home and no one will be watching the tank. Never had a tank crash knock on wood, but who knows. I guess bidder beware? If someome from out of town wants to bid go for it. I just can't guarantee anything beyond leaving on Monday. I would still expect the winner to make a donation within 24 hours

And apparently Alberta has decided to match donations as well! So far with a $40 bid from reeferious that's $120 direct to the Red Cross!

Keep it going!

Hey no worries!

Thanks. For sure go for it! Others must have some corals lying around to donate to a good cause?? Keep it going. If I had more time before leaving I'd post more stuff
