Paul writes: I thought you may be interested in featuring this ad for a charity auction, the item being a autopgraphed Gandalf the grey statue. All funds from the sale of this item will go to KidsReach, a Christian organisation, who will use all the money given to offer grief and trauma counseling to child survivors of the Tsunami and train locals to continue counseling over an extended period. is a NZ based auction but overseas collectors are welcome if they can get their funds accross into NZD.

UPDATE: Paul writes: I noticed there was a small flaw on the statue. I told weta and they are generously replacing/fixing it. So Ive removed the auction. Until then could you remove that news notice and I will update you once they give it back to me. Thanks!
