I'M STARTING COLLECTING!

Hey guys!

I've recieved an e-mail from my charity 'Ty Hafan Childrens Hospice in Wales' and they said that it would be ok for me to do a charity auction on Ebay for their charity.
So if anyone has advice about...
1. Who to wrie to?
2. Who sends out more than just an autographed picture?
3. Do I send SASE's with my requests?
4. Who sells the best on Ebay?

THANKS XX

I would send a request to someone who you know will become big in 2009. :D Someone that will be in a new TV series or a new movie. I would also suggest sending posters or something else to sign. I also think you should probably explain that you wanted to get an autograph back from them for your charity. They might send some extra autographs back. {thumb2} Hope this helps! :D

Hi Paigey012 {up}

To let you into a little secret ;-) Dr. Who actors do really well at the moment, especially David Tennant - he was one of my biggest raisers in my recent Xmas 2008 charity auction.

Also, try to think about people who others might not think to ask, such as politicians, theatre actors (some of my best-selling lots have been for signed theatre programmes).

Anyway, please feel free to check out my successes link: viewtopic.php?f=122&t=7018 , and if you need any further help - just ask!

Best of luck!
