Coin Auctions to benefit GPX Navigators

GPX Navigators needs our help. You “old timers” probably remember GPX Navigators who haven’t been active in geocaching for about the last three years. People come and go in the coin forums but there is a reason for her absence. In 2011 she developed some serious health problems requiring multiple surgeries with another one scheduled this week. Michele is not one to ask for help so I only found out this week that her medical bills that are not covered by insurance are now over $250,000 and still climbing. If any of you could find it in your heart to help she would be forever grateful. I plan to auction some of my coins and make some of the other items I have sold and put them on ebay for her benefit. The auctions that I set up for her will be clearly marked with all the proceeds going towards her bills. After I set up the auctions I will post some links to them in this thread. If anyone else wants to do the same please post your links here also. If you would like to donate some coins I would be happy to auction them off too.

 

Her niece also set up an online fundraiser account for her.

Michele came through this latest surgery just fine. Now time will tell if any more surgeries will be required. I received a package of donated coins and will list the ebay links when those auctions go live. If anyone else wants to donate coins let me know or to donate directly use the link in the OP. Thanks everyone!

Thanks everyone for the bids! I will post here how much we raised when everyone has paid and they have been sent out.

 

The second round of auctions have started and I hope to add a few more things in the next few days. You can search ebay for GPX Navigators in the title since all of my auctions have that in the title or start here

The first week's auctions netted a $101 donation to her fund. I received this email from her niece afterwards.

 

"Dear GEOCOINERS,

 

Thank you so much for donating to this cause, it means so much to our family. Please consider sharing this page with your network if you haven't already, https://www.crowdrise.com/HelpMickeyfighthercancerandpayhermedicalexpenses/fundraiser/mickeylou500

giving is contagious and your friends are more likely to give when they see that you have too.

 

Mickey had a tough surgery recently, which so far seems to have gone really well, even so, please keep her in your thoughts and send her positive energy and good vibes, we can't get enough of those!

 

All our love and thanks,

 

Leah (Mickeys niece)"

 

 

I am still tallying up the second week of auctions and will post when I make that donation.

 

We have a few very nice coins that were donated to auction this week. Take a look and bid if you can!

That is so awesome Beverly! Every little bit being raised helps. I hope these auctions help Michelle in her medical bills. Everyone that can help please do, lets help another Geocacher in need. Paying it forward is what makes me smile and what makes the world go round. When I know I can make a difference and bring a smile to someone that is what makes me smile. :) Blessed Be! Keep On Caching! ~Valarie of sweetlife

P.S. Beverly Thank You for all you been doing as well. Can never thank you enough. You have such a caring heart

I am getting some nice bids on the cool coins I currently have on ebay for Michele. They end in about an hour so there is still time to bid!

 

This upcoming week I will have a few more cool coins listed and I will post a link when those auctions go live.

 

Thanks everyone for your bids! We are making a difference!

So far my ebay auctions for Michele have netted donations of $827! I still have a few more things to list so maybe the best is left to last. You'll just have to wait and see! Meanwhile how about a Crystal Compass Rose (or two)?

The auctions end this evening and some don't have any bids at all surprisingly! If you don't see something you like and would like to help out donate directly at the link in the first post.

 

Thanks everyone!

I have a few more ebay auctions that end this evening in about 9 hours from this post. This most likely will be the last week of auctions except for a very few special coins that will be listed after I return from goecoinfest. Thanks so much for all your support! Bidders and winners alike--we thank all of you!!

I have a couple more coins on ebay with the net proceeds again going to GPX Navigators fundraiser. Take a look and put in a few bids. The money goes to a great cause!

 

Coins on ebay For Gpx Navigators

 

I heard from her not long ago and since the surgery in June she had had another recurrence. :( She is going through chemotherapy and it is very, very tough on her. Basically kicking her on her butt. She needs all the thoughts, good wishes and support sent her way. If you are a praying person please say a few for her and her family...

Please feel free to list this coin. I just took a picture of it. It is mine from my collection, I have a nontrackable version and am happy with that. 2007 Two-tone AE Tsunrisebey version, 25 minted and an unblemished, unactivated coin. I hope this brings in some good $$$ for her.

 

Thank you Bev for all your hard work on raising funds for Mich, you have been a great friend.

Also Tsunrisbey is auctioning an Earth Turtle from 2007!

 

If you can't bid then consider a direct donation to her online fundraiser at

That is an extremely generous donation from the mystery sender.I would just like to personally thank you as we do not have enough people like you in the world. B)

 

Agree!!! There are a lot of good people in the world!

 

Some of these coins I've never actually seen in person before too. I hope that they will bring in a lot of money for her fundraiser.

As you may know from reading my Sad News thread Michele of GPX Navigators lost her 4 year battle with cancer on March 12, 2015. Her bills will still need to be paid as well as the burial expenses. I am going to send the last money from my recent auctions directly to her family. If you have been watching her fundraiser site that's why you won't see it there. The fundraiser site takes out 7 or 8% so I thought that the family could use that extra bit. With this donation my auctions have raised $2856 and I know that many of you donated directly also. Her family is deeply grateful for everything. There currently is one auction on ebay for her that I know will be of interest......

 

To be continued.

007BigD has one of his awesome personal geocoins on ebay along with a handmade proxy that he has worked very hard to get perfect. I have already been outbid but let's see how long that will last. :laughing: Get in there and bid as you may not have another chance to get one of these cool coins especially with the proxy!!

 

Not a Mystery coin, but theres a CHANCE one might be included :ph34r: I listed one of my personal geocoins on ebay. It comes with a custom handmade proxy and 2 of my signature items. They have never been sold and I have so few left that I am no longer trading either. So take a look if you will :)

God Bless for all you have done Beverly. There is many who been so nice to donate for her and her family. I being one of them. Michelle is greatly missed each and every day.. I have been having a hard time with her loss. She never gave up the fight thru it all. I know someday we will all meet again and cache together as one great big Family in heaven.

Thank You for the bottom of my heart. ~Valarie of sweetlife

Thanks Beverly and yes val, she will be missed. I had hopped to get this all together before her passing, I really wanted to include a proxy and I just couldn't get it to my standards till now. Its a new thing for me to do, but I've got my method down well enough to make it a part of the auction.

 

Thanks to all who have already bid and/or have bid on previous auctions... Its already surpassed what I hoped it to bring in. Lol :)

Sadly we have lost Michele but her family still has the bills....

 

I think that 007BigD's auction could be a steal at this price! The bidding ends in about 26 hours from this post so if you are interested in a really cool coin and proxy plus the other items too get your bid in!
