[nepal] earthquake | BUY IT NOW fundraiser

As most of you have probably become aware, Nepal has been devastated by a 7.8 magnitude earthquake. With over 1800 people already believed to have perished, and infrastructure and housing largely demolished in many areas, fandomaid is launching a new campaign to support fundraising efforts. This fundraiser will only feature the BUY IT NOW (and related) options. There will be NO auction option at this stage.

I would like 5 friendship bracelets please, 8 strings each.

I used to make friendship bracelets, and could use inspiration for patterns to try, so if you could make them each a different pattern, that would be neat.

No big preference as to colours.

What is your policy on shipping, and do you have a preferred charity for the donation?

Hi! As far as shipping it'll depend on where I'm shipping to. I figure on covering all costs for domestic (US) and possibly trying to split cost for international depending on which shipping method would work best (quick arrival=more $$$ vs. slower=less $$$) since thankfully the bracelets will be relatively light and shouldn't cost too much to send out regardless.

As far as a preferred charity, I think Unicef or Doctors Without Borders. I've donated to both in the past and they seem to do good things in disasters like this.

I've got a bunch of patterns I've been itching to try so I look forward to getting started on those for you.

Well, I am in New Zealand, but I am happy for you to use slower/slowest shipping options. See what you think; PM me.

Have donated NZ $41 to Unicef, because Unicef has weird recommended amounts, and that was easier than converting anyway.

I can definitely do the house scarf one and I can either do just one house or the whole set (either using movie colors like in the pic or book colors) depending on your donation. Those would be a $4 donation per bracelet.

The alpha would take more time than the scarf ones but if that's okay it'll be a $20 donation.

I would like the house scarf in Slytherin colors please
