Fellow Mechanical Puzzlers
The war in Ukraine has created horrific impacts on millions of people who are suffering every day. Like many of you, my family feels strongly that we should be helping those in need as best we can, and soon. With the generous support of many puzzle crafters and collectors, I am taking the lead on a Puzzlers Ukraine Relief Charity Auction (PURCA) to benefit Ukraine on behalf of our generous puzzle community worldwide.
100% of auction proceeds, less actual shipping costs, will be donated and split equally to these two charities:
United Help Ukraine
Ukraine Red Cross
So far we have some incredible donations, including:
$5000 cash donation matching the first $5000 in bids
Stickman #1 Oak Slide Puzzle Box
Angry Walter (scratch/dent)
Granny's Tea Boxes (5)
Set of 12 Matryoshka / Barbooska Exotic Wood Nesting Eggs (incl a 24k egg!)
Houdini's Torture Cell (2011 original in wood)
3 Wise Bolts
One Handed Box
The PURCA team are volunteers. The admins of Mechanical Puzzles Discord and Puzzle Paradise are assisting with the auction format and transparent accounting process. Each auction lot will be credited to the donor.
We'd like to make this auction a success and make donations to these needy organizations soon.
Thank you for your kind attention,
Stefan Garcia and family
