Should I close the auction?
Someone sent me a private message that said:

What do you think, folks? It's a very generous donation and for that amount
($250), I'm more than ready to close the auction. I'm not familiar with how
things work on Aquabid though. Don't know if I can get the auction
running there. But I'll try.
