Fortunately the auction isn't aimed at you Rowan, or any of us. Most charity auctions are aimed at people who have a donation budget. Let's say someone has $5,000 they plan to donate to charity this year. They can either just give the $5,000 and get a pathetically small tax write off, or they can overbid on one of these charity auctions, and get a great gift to give to someone they know who plays computer games. The name of the game is to make an attractive mixed basket that will attract gamers and non-gamers to donate. Some baskets will go for under or around their value, but hopefully most will go for far above the retail value. Another consideration is that these baskets are usually contributed by corporations to the charity, so they make money no matter what.While you'd make more money splitting up the basket, the charity usually makes more money by putting together as awesome a package as they can.
