Lucy's Rainbow Warrior III Auctions Mention - Greenpeace e-Magazine Spring 2011

The Spring 2011 Greenpeace e-Magazine has an article about Lucy's Rainbow Warrior III Dinner and Artwork donations to raise money for Greenpeace's flagship Rainbow Warrior III. Lucy's contributions raised $34,500 for the Rainbow Warrior III.

ImageLucy Lawless has been a passionate Greenpeace supporter for many years, participating as an ambassador for our Sign On campaign and taking to the streets in protest against plans to mine our precious national parks. She?s one of New Zealand's most vocal environmental advocates and is never afraid to stick her head above the parapet. So when Greenpeace International prepared to launch a celebrity auction in aid of the Rainbow Warrior III, Lucy was again more than happy to lend her name to our efforts.

In true Kiwi fashion, Lucy ended up being one of the most generous celebrities involved, not only offering a dinner date to the highest bidder, but donating an iconic Michael Parekowhai artwork that has hung in her home since the early days of Xena: Warrior Princess. "I think we will fill the space with some family photos now, but it is heartbreaking to see [it] go", Lucy said.

The auctions finished on 22 September 2011...

ImageDinner With Lucy Lawless

The bidding war was frenzied as the three bidders went head to head for the prize of dinner with Lucy Lawless. What made it more nerve wracking for the bidders was that the CharityBuzz auction site reset the timer back to 9 minutes remaining on the countdown clock.

Every time someone bid, it was reset which must have driven the bidders totally crazy. When the dust settled and the winner emerged $12,500 was the winning bid for a dinner with Lucy Lawless.

Congratulations to JudeH for winning the dinner!

You're My Best Friend, Photographic Prints by Michael Parekowhai which Lucy bought with her first Xena pay packet didn't quite have the last frenetic bidding as the dinner but it jumped from the overnight bid of $10,500 and it jumped to $22,000 where it eventually sold.

Congratulations to Nilgiri for winning the artwork!

At the end of the day both bidders won but Greenpeace was the biggest winner. Lucy generated $34,500 for the Rainbow Warrior III. Greenpeace sent out a news update that they were on target to get $90,000 but I suspect that is going to be much higher now.

Message From Lucy - Auction Meet & Greet Lucy!

Received the following note from Lucy - she is raising money for Greenpeace and the Rainbow Warrior III - As many of you are aware the first Rainbow Warrior was sunk by the French in 25 years ago and now Greenpeace want to launch another Rainbow Warrior. Lucy is a Greenpeace ambassador. More details about the auction as it comes to hand but here is Lucy's message:

I am auctioning a meet and greet as part of the Greenpeace Int'l auction to raise money for the Rainbow Warrior III. I am selling some artwork and personal jewelry. After all, it's not worth shit without a clean planet.

Auction is Aug 24 in NY.

I am on a mission to raise money so that the Rainbow Warrior III can battle 'The Oncelers', as Dr Seuss called them, that are raping our planet. A sustainable future is within our grasp. Evolve now!

Love, love, love,

Here is more info from Greenpeace about their auction efforts:

The legacy of the Rainbow Warrior is important to New Zealanders. When the original Warrior was bombed 25 years ago, in Auckland's harbour, Kiwis rallied to support Greenpeace. In 1989 we launched the Rainbow Warrior II, and now we urgently need to replace her.

As you're probably aware, the New Zealand office hopes to raise $400,000 to fund the new Warrior's "Rapid Response Centre". We've made some great progress towards that goal, raising approximately $150,000 so far. Hundreds of supporters have donated online at www.rainbow-warrior.org.nz and many more have sent donations in through the mail.

Our fundraising auction in Auckland on October 20 was also a great success. Greenpeace supporters, spanning several generations, gathered at Webb's auction house in Newmarket to celebrate the achievements of the Rainbow Warrior and to help write the next chapter in her extraordinary story. There is not space to thank everyone individually, but we'd like to acknowledge the generous Kiwi artists, businesses and supporters who donated items, time and effort to help make this event the success it was.

We still have a funding shortfall, and just eleven months to reach our total. With the perilous state of our planet, the Earth needs the Warrior more than ever before and we're optimistic that our supporters around the country will dig deep to help us get over the line.

Please help spread the word and ensure we launch the Rainbow Warrior III. Donations can be made at www.rainbow-warrior.org.nz, by post, or by phoning 0800 22 33 44.
