This is brand new, untouched, with everything still in box, wrapped in plastic.
All proceeds go to GiveDirectly.org. GiveDirectly DIRECTLY sends on funds to recipients in some of the poorest countries on Earth, with an incredible track record to-date. The effort sprang out of the Effective Altruism movement.
The first 8 auctions worked out spectacularly, in which our esteemed colleagues, @Bessio@Robcollects@Ichibunz@Deeperblue@Edge168n@Jklotz@CliveC@laurik have helped to raise $12,164 for a number of Kenyan families. These are families earning less than the global poverty line of $1.90 / day. All of the auction proceeds went directly to them, and the funds from the 8 auctions thus far will effectively double the incomes of 34 families for a year! Previous auction:
The highest bid by Friday, September 2, 12pm PT wins the watch
Here’s where we do some real good for charity: If you are the winning bidder, please then Paypal or Venmo me the winning bid amount. I will make the donation of your winning bid, plus I will match that amount, to double the donation… But that’s not all folks! My employer will then do a full 100% match of that combined amount! Thus, every $1 of the winning bid will get multiplied by 4!!!
Let me say that again - every $1 of the winning bid will turn into $4 donated to GiveDirectly!!!
I will then post the screen shot of the full donated amount!
So, in summary:
Win the Phantasos Triclops in steel
Have the entirety of the proceeds go towards lifting a family out of extreme poverty
QUADRUPLE the size of your charitable contribution through my and my employer’s matching funds
