July 2021 UPDATE
While Cancer Gets Lost truly hoped to host our next big online charity auction this Fall, we have made the decision to postpone until February 2022. CGL has been very aware of/sensitive to and monitoring pandemic-related surges and lockdowns around the world. Because all of those factors affect shipping. We want our kind international fans to be able to participate, when it’s safe and not prohibitively expensive (winning bidders pay country fees/duties for all packages upon entry to their country).
Here is the truth. We rushed to ship items in March 2020 after our last big auction, right before the world shut down. Some countries shut down shipping during that time, and items got lost in the system (never to be found or delivered). The majority of CGL auction items are super rare or one-of-a-kind; we are not able to replace most of them. Reimbursing winning bidders comes out of our tiny annual operating budget, so that we don’t have to subtract any of the funds being donated to the charity benefiting from the auction.
In addition, last year a few winning bidders weren’t able to leave the house to pick up items because of lockdowns, and some weren’t able to pay the higher customs/duties fees. So we will wait. Your safety and well-being is our priority!
We are fortunate to have flexibility when it comes to CGL auction dates, and appreciate your patience. Whenever we are able to launch this auction, please note that 100% of all proceeds will be donated to the Colorectal Cancer Alliance in honor of two dear friends currently and bravely battling colon cancer.
Thanks to the ongoing generosity of fans, actors, crews and creative teams from your favorite films and TV shows, CGL is thrilled to have a wide variety of items in this charity auction. Every single item in our charity auctions is either rare or signed, and all are kindly donated!
