Hey guys, I was tipped off earlier today about an LJ fandom community effort to help out the people in Haiti. There are a large number of artists, writers, and crafters from various fandoms that are participating.

As quoted from its profile, [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti "was created in the morning of January 13, 2010, as a place for fandomers to help raise money to help in the rescues, recoveries and rebuilding of Haiti following the tragic earthquake on January 12, 2010."

Here's how it works:
- Go through the posts where people have offered their skills at creating fics, art, vids, podcasts, foods, toys, jewelry, clothing and more - just follow the links from the list in the sidebar.
- When you see an item you're interested in, reply to that comment with the amount you will donate if you are the winning bidder. You can bid up until noon (Eastern Standard Time) on January 20, 2010; new items can be added until 6:00 AM (EST) on January 20, 2010.
- If you win, you will be notified on January 20 or 21 by a reply to your comment from (a) one of the [livejournal.com profile] help_haiti mods or maintainers, or (b) the Offeror. Once you've been notified that you've won, you can make a donation to one of the listed charities (the list is still growing).
- The winning bidder will donate to the charity directly; please do not send any money to the Offeror or the comm's mods/maintainers.
- The confirmation process is still under development, but instructions on how to redact/block out your full name from a confirming receipt will be up by January 19.

[livejournal.com profile] theslayers is keeping a list of participating community creative sorts.

People I know that are participating:

FanArt/Original Art
[livejournal.com profile] lycorne -- Bidding Thread 1, Bidding Thread 2
[livejournal.com profile] jesidres -- Bidding Thread

[livejournal.com profile] dqbunny -- Bidding Thread
[livejournal.com profile] earthstar_chan - Bidding Thread


I encourage you guys to join either in creating stuff, by pimping this out, or by bidding. Shoot me the link if you post an offer thread be it for art, fic, or crafting -- just be sure to post your offer to the correct LJ post (i.e. mine is on the artistry post).
