The auctions opened on January 5 and closed today. The cap went for more than one million Australian dollars, with bidding closing at A$1,007,500 to a user by the name 'M.C. from Sydney', as per sources.
The funds will enable the Red Cross to support those affected by the horrific wildfires which have ravaged Australia.

Recently, authorities issued new warnings and evacuation notices across southeast Australia, as a return of hot weather fanned huge bushfires threatening several towns and communities.
"Don't get complacent from the rain we have had recently," Victoria Emergency Services Minister Lisa Neville said in a televised briefing, referring to several days of cool weather that has allowed firefighters to strengthen containment lines around blazes that have been burning for months.
Twenty-six people have died, thousands have been made homeless and thousands of others have had to evacuate repeatedly as the monster fires have scorched through more than 10.3 million hectares (25.5 million acres) of land - an area the size of South Korea.
Watch: Australia fires show no sign of stopping, new warnings issued by authorities
Formula One's star champion Lewis Hamilton has also stood by the cause by donating A$500,000 to Australian Fire Service and Animal Rescue Services.
Scientists say that the massive fires which do not show any sign of reducing have already killed over 50 million animals. However, ecologists at the University of Sydney on Wednesday doubled their estimate of the number of animals killed or injured in the fires to 1 billion.
