PAKIPIKA: Auction Rules

Q. I’m not big into spicy stuff. Can I just donate?

A:Yes! You can give through the indiegogo page at: www.kuahawaii.org/pakipika2018 and score some PAKIPIKA perks as a mahalo for your gift!

If you’d prefer to give in a more traditional way, you can make a donation at our KUA website at kuahawaii.org/donate or by mail:

Kaneohe, HI 96744

checks can be made out to: Kuaaina Ulu Auamo

Q: I love chili pepper water! Ooooh I want, I want. How do I bid?

Login to the chat on the bottom of each page with your Facebook or Twitter account. If you don’t have an account, you can login as a Guest.

To bid, leave your name and the amount you wish to bid. If you login as a Guest, you must ALSO leave your email address in the chat so we can contact you! Guest bids without an email will be considered invalid.

Q: What’s the minimum bid? What are the bid increments?

The minimum bid for all bottles is $15. This covers the costs of shipping. Minimum bid increment is $5. All bids should be a multiple of $5. (So no bids of “in-between” numbers… like $54.01 is no no!) Bids that are not greater than $15 or a multiple of $5 will be considered invalid.

Q. When does the auction end?

The auction ends at midnight on December 26, 2018.

Q: How will I know I won?

The highest valid bid at 12:00AM on December 26, 2018 will be named the winner. We will contact you via Facebook,Twitter or email, depending on how you identified yourself in the auction.

Q: How do I provide my donation for my bottle?

When we notify you of your winning (!!) bid, we will send you a link to donate. If you need to give by check or other, you can let us know at that time, no worries. We request that donations be received within 48 hours. If we do not hear from you within 48 hours, we will contact the next closest bidder.

Q: When will I receive my bottle?

We will begin getting bottles out to the winners as soon as possible, but it may be mid-January before we are able to get your bottle to you.

Q: If I participate in the auction, do I also get perks?

Your bottle of amazing, ‘ono, magical chili pepper water IS your perk. If you would ALSO like to score some perks, you can give through the indiegogo page at: www.kuahawaii.org/pakipika2018
