Every year since 2006, AUSXIP has held a charity auction to raise money for our official charities: “The Starship Foundation” – the fund raising arm of the Starship Children’s Hospital in New Zealand and The House of Bards Theatre Company (in the US).
This year’s auction begins on September 01 through to 04 September. 2021!
AUSXIP Greater Good Charity Auctions (as part of the AUSXIP Network) was created in 2006 to celebrate AUSXIP’s 10th Anniversary. We chose to celebrate this milestone by running a charity auction to raise money for the Greater Good. Our first auction was in honor of the Starship Foundation & The Renee O’Connor Outreach Fund. We raised $15,158.56. We were so delighted by the amount raised and the support from the Xenaverse that we decided to do it the following year and the years after that!
Since 2006 we have raised: $230,975.00
Our core principle is that 100% of the funds raised go to the charities that we support in our auctions.
We work together with The Starship Foundation and The House of Bards Theatre Company to make this process as easy as possible. You can be sure that 100% of the proceeds go directly to the charity because payment is always through their donation / payment gateway and we handle the shipping.
Unless stated otherwise, shipping is free in the US and elsewhere. This is made possible by the anonymous Xenites’ generosity. Whilst the shipping is free, there are times when this impossible due to the item’s weight and export location. Shipping information will be stated clearly in the auction item description if fees are required.
Our one goal for this site is to live up to the ideals of the Greater Good. Thank you for joining us in this venture. It is only through your support and generosity that we have been able to accomplish our mission to help those less fortunate and to support others in their endavours.
We are thrilled to announce the addition of Sherri Rabinowitz to AUSXIP Publishing. We will be publishing her novel “Murder Inc.” 2nd Edition.

Who is Lucia Nobrega?
I am Lúcia Nóbrega, a Brazilian comic book writer and illustrator for children. I started my career at the Mauricio de Sousa Studio where I learned my craft with the best teachers. It was at Editora Abril (Abril Publishing) that my carrier really flourished. I wrote many comic books such as Alegria & CIA, Os Trapalhões, As Aventuras dos Trapalhões, Gugu, Little Lulu, Strawberry Shortcake.
Abril is the official publisher of Disney in Brazil so I wrote a few stories for Mickey, Donald and Zé Carioca too. Moving on from that adventure, I became a free-lancer artist and am currently working for various publications.
