Default Team Connor Challenge

I do not normally get involved with the personal matters here on the boards, but the fight of Connor and his family has touched me in a way that goes beyond anything else I have read on these boards. I was just going to donate money to help them, but then I thought maybe we could do something better...so here is my challenge.
I challenge you to list one item on ebay and donate 100% of the proceeds to Connor and his family. Start the auction at .99 and where it ends, be happy to give.

If you take the challenge spam your auction here!!! Try to include Team Connor in your title.

Here is mine:

Well I was just going to donate but here is what I am going to do.

I bid on your auction. If I win it I am going to have you send it to a member here and have him donate what he feels it is worth to him. Increasing the donation.

FWIW though some may report this to Ebay becuase you say you are donating and they are specific about donation.

I never even took the time to read the rules (that's why I get along with everyone here) about donations, actually never even thought about those rules. Do you think let them report me or just take out the donation part?

Let them take it down

They may just ask you to reomove the charity mention.

Been kinda disappointed in the lack of participation here. If there is a giveaway, then there are 5 pages worth of people entering. Jon thanks for the support. One day if I'm every in spot, I hope someone may step out and give a brother a hand. Hopefully we may see an auction or two pop up for Connor.

will ebay let you run it as a charitable auction of your choice? I'd be up for posting some stuff for connor and the family. people tend to bid more when they know for certain the auction is for charity and not just you posting it in the listing. I know years ago I did a 50/50 for the Pat Tillman foundation and I was able to add it in the charity area of the listing set up.

I did not see them on the list of charities on ebay, that's why I had to do it the way I did it.

My item ended today...$55.01, being donated this evening!!!
I'm going to try to do one or two more auctions by this weekend.

Oh I know. I was going to pay you and then have you send the hat to another who would donate as well.

Oh well. Next time!!

Can someone fill me in on the story of this "Connor" family? I'd like to know what this is all about.

about 5 hours left in this auction of mine. I'm sure every penny counts.

Sweet, I'm disappointed someone else didn't bid me up, but I'm sure every little bit helps
