Happy New Year!

CGL is proud to partner again with our friends at Conageddon to present the Cancer Gets Lost Conageddon2 Charity Auction, online and opening in March for fans around the world! Featuring all The 100 items, most kindly signed by the cast, every cent raised in the auction will be donated to a children’s cancer charity.

Open online from March 12 – 20 (before, during and after the Con in Boston), we want ALL fans around the globe to have the opportunity to support the greater good, whether or not you’re attending Conageddon!

We will post a link to the online auction here, as well as on Twitter and Facebook, once it is live and open for bids! In addition, we’ll post very detailed pre and post auction instructions here.

Please note: you will need a PayPal account if you plan to bid on items in our charity auction (you will also have the option of paying for items with a credit card via PayPal)!

DONATION

 

100% of the proceeds from the CGL Conageddon Charity Auction will be donated to CURE Childhood Cancer, to benefit childhood cancer research and support the young cancer patients and their families. CURE is a terrific charity dedicated to conquering childhood cancer through funding targeted research while supporting patients and their families.

DEDICATION

The 2019 Cancer Gets Lost Conageddon2 Online Charity Auction is dedicated to the memory of Isla, a very sweet little girl that tragically lost her battle with cancer recently.

A few years ago I had the opportunity to host a charity auction to help raise money for her leukemia treatment, on behalf of her dear family friend and ours, Eliza Taylor. As most of you know, Eliza is the co-founder of non-profit Koh Tao Primary school in Thailand, stars on The 100 and is one of the primary Conageddon organizers.

And now we are very honored to be able to donate every cent raised in this charity auction in Isla’s memory, and for all children battling cancer.

FREE SHIPPING!

CGL is excited to be able to offer free shipping on all Conageddon charity auction item packages. Domestic and Global! Side note: I will be personally paying for all shipping and packaging out-of-pocket myself, entirely separate from CGL, as a gift and gesture to honor Isla.

Thank you so much for your kind support of CGL and CURE Childhood Cancer! Stay tuned for more auction details closer to the launch date in March.
