Background Story
This is an online auction happening to help Sha fight cancer!

Sha (@sha_saleh), a single mother, was diagnosed with stage 3a cancer in April 2016. She had surgery to remove her upper right lung alongside 7 lymph nodes in May 2016. After the surgery, she was given the clear. However, the cancer recurred (now in her brain) in May 2017 and in June, Sha had her first cycle of Immunotherapy, which is only offered at private health institutions. 3 weeks later, she had her second. Unfortunately, she might not be able to do it anymore due to the expensive cost - RM1,000,000 for 2 years. That’s around RM30,000 per session for every 3 weeks for 2 years! Unlike chemotherapy, Immunotherapy is the best chance Sha has to having a normal life.

Do share this event & we hope to see you bidding! ❤️ #makersmalaysia

Date: 10AM Friday 8 September - 10PM Sunday 10 September

Rules/ How to Bid

Rules are simple.

You must bid (comment below pic) higher than the Starting Bid. Bids must be in whole MYRs, e.g. RM1, RM2, RM3, RM4, RM5, and etc. You are not allowed to bid in cents.

Tag the previous bidder, out of courtesy. You wouldn't like to be outbid without knowing anything, right? ;) Do be courteous.

Set your limits. It can be exciting when you start bidding. Yet, know when to stop if you can't be sure to pay up. No one likes a backout, especially later when the bids end.

Simple Tutorial (using the Charity Auction last year)
Note that the Starting Bid is RM40

1st Bidder/Comment started with RM55.
2nd Bidder below outbid 1st with RM60 AND tagged the 1st.
The bids went on until the cut off time, where by @makersmalaysiacharity announced, "The auction is now over!".

Total all your bids and prepare the amount as @makersmalaysiacharity will DM the bank details.

Once payment confirmed, the respective sponsors will contact you for delivery address.

Finally, wait for the arrival of your items!

Easy, right! So, go ahead to their IG @makersmalaysiacharity and use the IG "Save Post" function to bookmark your desired auction items!

Hold on before you leave my post!

@makersmalaysiacharity has something new this time.
