Movember auction - MP3 player up for grabs!

Discussion in 'The Pub' started by rob_, Nov 24, 2008.

  1. Hey all,

    As many of you would know, November is actually now known as Movember. Movember is a fundraising event to help raise money for prostate cancer research and beyondblue. I'm taking part by growing a mo, much to my girlfriend's (supportive) dismay. my MoSpace is here: http://au.movember.com/mospace/2041982

    Today, as part of a promotion from Samsung (i sell tvs), I recieved a new 2GB mp3 player. Rather than hawk it on ebay, i thought i'd 'auction' it on here, with all proceeds of the winning bid going to movember. just make bids as a response to this thread. the higgest bid made by 6:00pm, Friday the 28th of Movember wins. payment is to be made on my MoSpace (that way you also get a tax receipt). delivery is free if you pick it up, or i can give it to you on a thrusday mystery ride. Postage to anywhere in Australia will be $15.

    the mp3 player you are bidding for has details here:Samsung S3 website. It is the 2gb version in light blue. it is unopened. would make a great christmas present, and they have a rrp of $119. does music, video, pics, fm radio, the lot basically. touch pad interface.

    if you want to donate to Movember irrespective of the mp3 player, just got to my MoSpace and click on the "donate to me" link.

    i'm making a first bid of $5. bid freely and help a great cause!



    mods, if this is in the wrong forum, please move it. i dont think this contravenes any forum rules, but if it does, please let me know
  2. I'll Play. Do you know what colour it is?

  3. thanks for the bid! its light blue, so would suit either a boy or girl. apparently its pretty good - some other people from work are keeping them, and they love it. this image is from the samsung website. the one you'll be getting is unopened.
