Many people tend to support charitable organizations at the end of each year by writing a check. In that spirit, we would like to encourage you to consider making a last-minute 2011 donation to either the National Brain Tumor Society or the American Cancer Society.
As an incentive to contribute – anyone who makes a donation in any amount to either charity above by 12/31/11 will automatically be entered to win one of the following LOST-related items. If you’d like to be in the running for this giveaway, simply email us your receipt to: jared [at] cancergetslost [dot] org (and yes, we will ship to any location around the globe)!
Happy Holidays, and thank you in advance for any contributions!
Managed to meet up with Harold Perrineau (Michael Dawson, a.k.a. Kevin Johnson) last night at a charity toy drive, where he very graciously helped our cause by signing a limited edition costume card and a few trading cards, among some other surprises!
The Whole Truth is that every single One of Us has been affected by cancer. Friends, family, co-workers. You might be One of Them.
Even in this struggling economy, we strongly believe that it is essential to continue illuminating and assisting the causes that support those who are battling cancer. The Cost of Living is high these days, particularly for those with mounting medical bills. So we decided to amass our personal collections of LOST memorabilia, as well as seek out additional items to auction off – to raise money for a cancer charity very close to our Hearts and Minds: the National Brain Tumor Society. The main objective of Cancer Gets LOST is to produce a live event in Los Angeles in the summer of 2012 that coincides with the auction, with 100% of the profits benefiting the NBTS.
We are currently in the Recon phase, reaching out to networks and industry contacts for donated items and assessing logistical possibilities. But we are certainly also open to donations from fellow fans who are willing to part with Special items from their own collections! The memorabilia does not necessarily have to be from LOST; we are also interested in items from other shows and films created by or starring former LOST cast and crew. Please email jared [at] cancergetslost [dot] org if you have any questions or would like to contribute at this stage.
