    CHARITY SALE: ThinkTank Retrospective 5 (SOLD)

    I recently did a review on the ThinkTank Retrospective 5:

    Part I
    Part II

    ThinkTank was kind enough to let me keep the bag after review. Rather than keeping it I have, instead, decided to sell the bag here at GetDPI.com and give the proceeds to a charity -- a win/win.

    You buy the bag, I donate the proceeds to the charity of your choice (please make sure the charity accepts PayPal donations). CONUS only -- sorry.

    The bag will be shipped to you in the original box, and has never been outside my house.

    $100


    Please, no bargaining or holding. It's for a good cause (yours) and is a good price. First person to put $100 in my PayPal account takes it. PM me for the account email.


    (I'll take the PayPal hit and pay CONUS shipping)

    That is a very kind gesture. Too bad I live in Canada.

    BTW folks Mike did contact us about this auction and we did approve it for charity. If anyone would also like to do something similar give us a jingle, Jack and I are all for these charitable causes to help others. Thanks Guy

    BTW I also had one of these bags really sweet little bag.

    Thanks Guy. To clarify a bit for others here, my first idea was to raffle the bag for $5 a "ticket", with the winner getting the bag and the money going to charity. Because it was unusual, I asked for permission, and was kindly granted it by Guy and Jack.

    I actually typed up the raffle post last night, but as I worked on it I started to feel that it might become too complex for me to carry out to all participants' satisfaction. I also worried that I might not raise as much money as I'd like. Therefore, I just did the simple sale approach you see posted here. It went very quickly and we all share in a win: Terry got a bag she wanted, for a good price, and also made a donation to a cause she believes in.

    Thanks!

    Thank you for your thoughts Roel. I felt the need to limit it to CONUS, to keep it simple (for me, anyway).
