One crucial thing to publish here is requests and donations must 100% go to charities approved by their respective country's charity approval organisations.

In this instance, the benefitting charities meet those conditions, as they are:

Profits from our Travel Auction will be shared between some great charities including: Julia’s House Children’s Hospice, Doctors Without Borders, Sheldrick Wildlife Trust & UNICEF.
BUT as there is the conditional "TBC" from the OP, this thtead will be closed until.we receive final confirmation all of FlyerTalk's conditions are met.
