The John Key cast and morning tea auction hit an amazing $20,000 at 1 am this morning.
There have been 202 bids and what has amazed me is how many different people are bidding, even after it hit $10,000. This suggests to me it may get quite busy in the last few hours on Sunday.
The number of questions on the auction are in the hundreds and there have been almost 100,000 page views of it. I feel sorry for John’s staff who were up until midnight doing responses to questions.
Incidentally if you want want to support the good work done by the Fred Hollows Foundation but $20,000 is out of your price range, you can donate directly to them here.
