The 2019 Cancer Gets Lost Conageddon2 Charity Auction is dedicated to the memory of sweet Isla, Eliza Taylor’s young friend that recently lost her battle with cancer. We are grateful for your support of this auction, which honors her memory by supporting other children and their families that are facing this disease.

I had the opportunity to host a fundraising auction with Eliza for Isla and her family a few years ago, and as a kindness to honor Isla’s legacy – I am personally covering the cost of packaging and shipping for ALL auction items (U.S. and international) in this auction.

But to reiterate: the winning bidder IS responsible for ANY/ALL Customs and Import Duties that may apply once the auction shipment arrives in your country. 

If you win more than one item, they will be shipped together, unless one requires a poster tube or Pop box. Flat art and photos will be shipped separately.

POST-AUCTION DONATION

After ALL payments for items won in the 2019 Cancer Gets Lost Conageddon2 Charity Auction have been received, confirmed and processed by FJC, AND Cancer Gets Lost has completed shipment of all items – we will then donate 100% of the auction proceeds to CURE Childhood Cancer; every cent raised! We will share the total amount of money raised and donated, once that number has been finalized.

Thank you so much for your support of CGL and CURE Childhood Cancer! We are so appreciative for your generosity and kindness.

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.
