Choose Kindness: CGL Partners with Fangirl Shirts for Fundraising Campaign!

We are excited to have teamed up with our friends at Fangirl Shirts for an ongoing Choose Kindness fundraising campaign; t-shirts, sweatshirts and mugs with “Be The Fan You Wish To See In The World” on the front and #ChooseKindness on the back! Click here to peruse merchandise options provided by Fangirl Shirts via Teespring, including styles for all genders and sizes.

As you know, CGL strongly believes in channeling all fandoms toward the greater good. We hope to see a more productive and positive social media presence among online fan communities, and aim to continuously influence fans to make an actual difference in the world. Thus, we adopted the phrase “Be The Fan You Wish To See In The World” and always encourage people online and in person to #ChooseKindness.

50% of the proceeds from the sale of each Choose Kindness item purchased during this campaign will be donated to PanCAN (the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network)! PanCAN is CGL’s charity of choice right now because it is personal; we are inspired to raise money for this organization because my mother-in-law is battling Stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

Fangirl Shirts also kindly interviewed me about this campaign, which is here on their site if you’re interested.

Thank you in advance for your consideration!

Leukemia Fundraiser with Eliza Taylor

*UPDATE: Thanks to the very kind fans that bid on and won items in the Auction for Isla, we were able to donate $5,095 (every cent raised in the auction) to Isla’s family fundraiser, to help cover her leukemia care expenses. THANK YOU all so much!

Hello and welcome to Cancer Gets LOST. Here is a link to the auction I am working on with Eliza for her family friend in Thailand – Auction for Isla. In addition, if you’d like make a donation directly to Isla’s family to help cover the cost of her treatment for leukemia – click HERE for their family fundraising page!

Thank you for your patience, interest and amazing support! Please follow @MisElizaJane @TaoPrimary (the non-profit school Eliza runs in Thailand) & @jopinionated on Twitter for updates.

* To clarify, this fundraising auction is being hosted by me personally, and not CGL. There are logistics involved, but long story short…it is because 100% of the proceeds from this auction are being donated to an individual family rather than to a cancer charity. Eliza and I guarantee that every cent raised in this auction will be donated to Isla’s family fund, and we will share the receipt once the auction ends and all winning bidders have paid for their items.

Thank you in advance for helping us to raise money for little Isla’s leukemia treatments. It means the world to all involved.

CGL 2017-2018 Charity Auction Update & Schedule!

Hello, patient friends and kind supporters! We wanted to let you know our charity auction schedule for this year and next, as well as provide a wrap-up of our very successful auction at Unity Days 2017.

Unity Days

Our friend Sachin Sahel (Jackson) stopped by the Unity Days auction!

In January, we hosted an onsite silent charity auction at Unity Days in Vancouver, Canada. Unity Days, hosted by Unity Events Canada (who kindly chose CGL as their charity of choice), is a fan event/convention celebrating The CW series The 100. Our auction featured 70 items, many signed by our friends in front of and behind the scenes on The 100. Thanks to the generosity of attending fans, we raised $4,600 and donated every cent to PanCAN (Pancreatic Cancer Action Network)! Note of gratitude to all that donated, signed and bid on items in this auction. Shout-out of appreciation for our UD auction volunteers: Lisa C, Jen S and Layhan – as well as the many sweet fans that donated signed items for future auctions!

In addition, I had the great pleasure of moderating the actor panels at Unity Days – and they all signed additional The 100 items for future CGL auctions. Working with this cast over the last few years has been an absolute pleasure; they are all incredibly generous with their time, and I look forward to collaborating on future charitable endeavors with them.

It certainly seems as though there will be a Unity Days 2018, and if so – Unity Events Canada has already said we are invited us back to host another onsite charity auction!

LOST 2017

LOST 2014 silent auction

On October 8 of this year, we are honored to be hosting an onsite silent charity auction at LOST 2017, a fan event on Oahu (Hawaii)! To be honest, we are thrilled to be able to host this auction in the infamous YMCA camp that served as Dharmaville on LOST. We previously hosted an auction at LOST 2014, and raised almost $12,000 for the American Cancer Society. This year we will be donating 100% of the proceeds from our LOST 2017 auction to PanCAN, in honor of my mother-in-law, who is battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer.

We have over 100 items ready for our LOST 2017 charity auction, including several signed magazines, trading cards, posters and more! Thank you to those that have donated and signed items; we anticipate raising a few thousand dollars for the cause, and really appreciate your contributions.

2018

As you know, we host our large online charity auctions every other year. We are hard at work on our big 2018 auction, and thanks to generous fans and actors/writers/producers – we already have items from over 40 TV shows and 10 films! Once the launch date of this auction has been decided, as well as the charity of choice we designate to receive the net proceeds, we will let you know.

See you on the other side, and may we tweet again!

CGL at Unity Days 2017: Silent Auction!

Cancer Gets LOST is very excited to partner with Unity Events Canada to be the official charity partner of Unity Days 2017! Unity Days is a 3 day convention dedicated to The CW series The 100, as well as their amazing fan community.

CGL will be hosting a small silent charity auction at Unity Days 2017 on Friday, January 13 in Vancouver! Auction will be open for all attendees from 5pm-7pm & 8pm-10pm in the hotel foyer (near the Unity Days reg desk).

Items in the CGL charity auction at Unity Days will all be related to The 100 (some already signed), including many that would be fantastic to bring to autograph ops on Saturday and Sunday at the Con!

On Friday evening at Unity Days, if you place any bids in our charity auction, please check to see if you’ve won the items at exactly 10pm. Because if you win an item in our Unity Days charity auction, payment will be required immediately via our CGL PayPal! The link is on the upper right on this page. If you don’t have a PayPal account, you can either sign up for one on their site or use a credit card to pay CGL via PayPal.

* Please note, when you click on our PayPal DONATE button, you’ll see “FJC – A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds” – this is correct! FJC is CGL’s fiscal sponsor, and they run our PayPal account.

If you win more than one item, please combine; add up the total amount owed to CGL from your auction wins, and make one PayPal payment.

After making payment via PayPal, simply sign the bottom of your final bid sheet and show Jo/other CGL team members your email receipts on your phones to pick up items after the auction! All instructions and links will also be printed out on bidding sheets. We appreciate your patience in advance, as we will only have a few Cancer Gets LOST folks working the auction and it will take some time to confirm receipts and hand out items upon completion of the auction!

CGL will be donating 100% of the proceeds from this auction to the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network (in honor of my mother-in-law, who is bravely battling stage 4 pancreatic cancer).

It is very kind of the Unity Days event organizers to include us, and we are very appreciative for the opportunity to be their charity of choice.

UPDATE: Unfortunately, Unity Days had to cancel the CGL Charity Concert that was to take place at the event on Saturday, January 14. Per Unity Days: “all tickets purchased for the concert and cocktail and concert will be refunded via Eventbrite and will appear on the customer’s original method of payment.” For any questions, please email ​leana@unityeventscanada.com.​

However, we are thrilled to still be hosting the silent charity auction on Friday night at Unity Days, and hope to see you there!

Unity Days TICKETS

Unity Days 2017

Click on the green TICKETS button on the right side to open a menu. You can purchase passes to the Con, photo and autograph ops, and meet & greets.

* As a lovely bonus, I will be moderating all of the actor panels at Unity Days 2017 – a fantastic honor and experience that I look forward to with great enthusiasm! This cast in particular has signed countless items for our auctions and has been tremendously supportive of CGL; I have worked with many of them over the last two years on our various charitable endeavors. There will be 12 actors from The 100 at Unity Days, including: Eliza Taylor, Bob Morley, Lindsey Morgan, Christopher Larkin, Richard Harmon, Chelsey Reist, Jarod Joseph, Katie Stuart, Luisa D’Olivera, Sachin Sahel, Tasya Teles and Jessica Harmon!

2016 Cancer Gets LOST Charity Auction: The Numbers!

Thanks to the tremendous generosity of fans across the globe, as well as all that contributed and/or signed items, Cancer Gets LOST raised an absolutely incredible amount of money to donate to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer!

2016 Cancer Gets LOST Charity Auction: The Numbers

454: auction items

762: registered bidders

225: winning bidders

$65,000 (auction net proceeds): Cancer Gets LOST donating to Alex’s Lemonade Stand!

Net Proceeds

In the interest of transparency, and because many of you have inquired, we felt that it was important to elaborate about what it means to donate the net proceeds from our charity auction, and the costs involved with hosting such a large charitable endeavor.

100% of the net proceeds from the 2016 CGL auction are being donated as we speak to Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Every other cent raised in this auction was used to pay the following: auction hosting, catalog, photography, shipping services, Paypal fees and fiscal sponsor fees. PLUS, Cancer Gets LOST paid for ALL Buyers Premiums on our end, saving auction buyers an extra 20% per item won in the auction.

* Cancer Gets LOST made/took $0 from our charity auction.

Thank You Again!

We are so grateful for your support of CGL, and thankful for all of your support, retweets, link shares and positive encouragement along the way and throughout the auction.

2017 and Beyond

Our next two charity auctions will take place on site at fan events. CGL will be hosting smaller silent auctions at Unity Days 2017 in January (Vancouver) and LOST 2017 in October (Hawaii)! In the meantime, we have also already started working on our big 2018 online charity auction, and appreciate that so many of you have already reached out to donate items or assist us with autograph acquisitions.

Tweet us at any time if you have any questions, or would like to contribute to a future auction in some capacity! @CancerGetsLOST

Post-Auction Instructions & Notes of Gratitude!

Thank you so very much for your spectacular participation in our charity auction! As you know, the 2016 Cancer Gets LOST Charity Auction came to a close on Saturday. It was a rousing success, thanks to the tremendous generosity of fans bidding from across the globe!

Below you will find a list of the steps to follow if you’ve won items in our auction, as well as special acknowledgements of those who went above and beyond to bring the CGL auction to life.

BUYER RESPONSIBILITY

  • Within the next two days, Blacksparrow will be emailing all winning bidders an itemized invoice for items won in the 2016 CGL Charity Auction, including shipping costs. * If you win multiple items, they will be combined on one invoice. In the email, there will be a link to the Cancer Gets LOST Paypal account, for winning bidders to complete payment. You will have 7 working days to complete payments for items won.
  • PLEASE make sure that you enter the exact amount from your invoice when you make your Paypal payment! You do not have to have a Paypal account, but we strongly recommend it. Paypal does offer the option to pay via credit card.

TAXES

  • Residents of California must pay applicable sales tax (9%) on final bid prices of items.
  • If you won an item in the CGL auction valued at over $75, you will automatically receive a tax receipt from CGL/FJC. If you won an item valued under $75, you may request a tax receipt from FJC (please email CGL: cancergetslost at gmail dot com), or your Paypal receipt can serve as U.S. tax substantiation.

* LOCAL PICK-UP OF AUCTION ITEMS *

If you live in the Los Angeles area or are visiting soon and would like to pick up your auction items in person, PLEASE NOTE: you must pay applicable CA sales tax (9%) on final bid prices of items, even if you live out of state! * Please contact Blacksparrow Inc. ASAP if you’d like to schedule local pickup (info at blacksparrowinc dot com) and to clarify further.

SHIPPING OF AUCTION ITEMS

Because CGL is a 2-person operation and CGL’s charitable fiscal sponsor FJC, a 501c(3) public charity, has to process all payments to the CGL Paypal account, please note that shipment of your items from Blacksparrow will take place throughout September and early October. We appreciate your patience in advance!

  • All domestic packages will be shipped via USPS or FedEx, depending on expediency and costs. Blacksparrow will choose the best option for you at the most reasonable cost. All packages will include insurance and tracking. Shipping notifications with tracking info will be emailed to winning bidders.
  • All overseas packages will be shipped via USPS International First Class (for packages weighing less than 3 pounds), or USPS International Priority (for packages 3 pounds or higher).
  • * For Canadian auction item winners, if you are concerned about the current postal strike – Blacksparrow would be happy to hold your items until the issues are resolved. Just let them know!
  • All oversize items, e.g., large wall panel-size posters on foam core, will require 3rd party shipping (Box Brothers, Freighters & Craters, etc.).

Every item from the CGL Charity Auction will be accompanied by a Certificate of Authenticity.

ALEX’S LEMONADE STAND FOUNDATION FOR CHILDHOOD CANCER

Once all auction payments have been made, items have been shipped and details have been finalized with our fiscal sponsor FJC, Cancer Gets LOST will be donating 100% of the net proceeds from this charity auction to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for Childhood Cancer! We will let you know the total amount donated once all of the details above have been finalized.

THANK YOU!

A note of sincere gratitude goes out to CGL’s fiscal sponsor FJC – and to Program Manager Nikki Carpenter, who works hard to ensure that all of the details behinds the scenes run smoothly for us!

We were able to successfully and seamlessly build this auction because of our auction host and friends at Blacksparrow, Inc. Huge thanks to Fong and Erica for working with us for the last two years to bring this charity auction to life, for their beautiful photography and catalog, meticulous auction details and shipping management!

Our long LOST friends Showrunner/Executive Producer Damon Lindelof (The Leftovers) and Supervising Producer Javier Grillo-Marxuach (The 100, Xena) each donated and signed an absolute treasure trove of items to CGL for this charity auction, and we are forever grateful for their amazing contributions! Former LOST Showrunner/Executive Producer Carlton Cuse (Bates Motel, Colony, The Strain) and Jorge Garcia (Hawaii Five-O) also kindly signed stacks of items for our auction. And LOST Executive Producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis (Once Upon a Time) continue to spoil CGL with their kind item donations and autographs!

Once again we are stunned by the sheer number of items that Bad Robot generously donated to CGL for this charity auction from several of their shows – thank you very much, Noreen O’Toole!

The cast, crew and creative team from The 100 went above and beyond for Cancer Gets LOST this year, and we so appreciate their many item and autograph contributions to this auction. In particular, we must thank The 100 Writers Room, Props Department and both Eliza Taylor & Lindsey Morgan for their ongoing generosity and friendship!

Paul McQue is a legend in both the LOST and Star Wars communities, and with good reason! He is a lovely, kind and generous human being and terrific friend to CGL; Paul traveled the globe to acquire and get rare items signed for our auction, and we are honored that he donates his contributions to our cause.

CGL’s co-founder Jared “Jay” Wong works for Walker Stalker Con and Heroes & Villains Fan Fest in his spare time, and ensures that items from shows and films represented at those events are signed for our auctions! We would like to especially thank Jay, The Walking Dead cast for always signing many items for us, and the folks that run WSC & HVFF for partnering with CGL for the greater good.

To Bobby Moynihan, John BernsteinSesame Street and Warner Brothers Television, we extend our gratitude for your fantastic auction item donations and support!

FANS!

To every single person from all fandoms that donated an item or autograph to our charity auction, know that we are so grateful for your contributions and appreciate them more than you know! Your generosity fuels our desire to continue channeling fans toward the greater good, and we are only able to do so because of your ongoing support.

FYI: there is a Thank You tab on this site where we tried to list out every single person that donated items, their time or autographs for our charity auction!

2017 & BEYOND

Once we have finalized and closed the 2016 CGL Charity Auction, we will start to focus on two events in 2017: the CGL Charity Concert at the Unity Days Con (January in Vancouver), and the onsite CGL silent auction we are hosting at LOST 2017 next October in Hawaii!

CONTRIBUTING TO CGL

Year-round, we are open to item donations, from custom art and handcrafted items to screen-used props, signed scripts & photos, trading cards, limited edition prints & posters, sealed collectibles and more! If you are interested in possibly contributing something for our next major online charity auction (slated for 2018; date TBD), please email us any time: cancergetslost at gmail dot com!

If you would like to support Cancer Gets LOST by making a financial donation to help us cover operating costs, we have a Paypal button at the top right of this and every page on our site.

If you make a contribution in any amount, we will send you a CGL wristband!

Thank you again for your outstanding support, retweets/social media posts & shares, generous item donations and incredible bids in our charity auction!

If you’re going to either the September 22 or September 23 “We Have to Go Back” LOST Concerts with Michael Giacchino in Los Angeles, we are attending both nights and will see you there in a few weeks!
