September 2011

Disclosure: If I'm not making money through affiliate links on the post you're currently reading, it's an oversight on my part and will be corrected soon.

It’s been a few weeks now since wildfires broke out in Austin, TX and the surrounding areas, where my business partner, Shawn Collins lives.

Shawn and is neighbors are eternally grateful for Travis County Emergency Service District No.6, who courageously fought the central Texas wildfires of September 2011.

There were lots of fundraisers and events shortly after the wildfires, but things have quieted down since then.

But the needs Travis County Emergency Service District No.6 are ongoing, so Shawn wanted to start off a series of auctions to raise some funds for those heroes.

Here are a couple auctions to start:

  • Platinum Pass to Affiliate Summit West 2012
  • Interview on the Affiliate Tip Blog

Both will end on October 7, 2011. Opening bid for each will be $5.00, and there is no minimum after the opening bid.

The winners of any auctions will pay directly to these heroes via PayPal on their site at

Here's an opportunity to get some great deals and help out at the same time.

Go bid, will ya?
