NBTS Donations via Cancer Gets LOST

As most of you are aware, we selected the National Brain Tumor Society to receive 100% of the proceeds from the Cancer Gets LOST auction, webcast and fundraising event in honor of Jo’s good friend Jackie, who passed away on August 3 after fighting bravely against brain tumors and cancer for four years.

We know that many of you never watched LOST and are not bidding on items in our charity auction, but you have expressed in interest in contributing to the cause. For those of you who would like to make a donation directly to the National Brain Tumor Society from now through August 29, 2012, we kindly ask that you do so via the following link, so that your contributions count toward our overall fundraising total!

We appreciate your support on all levels – and to encourage you to consider making a financial donation during our live webcast this Saturday (8/25), we are going to sweeten the pot…

If you 1) make a donation directly to the NBTS via the link above on during our live webcast Saturday, August 25 between 12pm PT – 4pm PT and 2) email your receipts to receipts[at]cancergetslost[dot]org, you will receive one of the following in return [while supplies last]:

  • $25 donation to NBTS: limited edition Cancer Gets LOST wristband (first 100 people)

  • $50 donation to NBTS: limited edition “Jacob Loves You” 14×20 mini-poster, created by Cancer Get LOST co-founder Jared W. (first 50 people; a limited number of these will also be available at the Fundraising Event on Saturday night for a cash donation of $30)

  • $100 donation to NBTS: LOST S6 DVD, donated & signed by Damon Lindelof (first 30 people)

* If you make a contribution of $100 or more, you may choose 1 of the above items. If you don’t want any of the items, you don’t have to email us your receipt (but thank you, nonetheless!).

This offer only applies on Saturday, August 25 from noon – 4pm PT and ONLY if you email your receipts to receipts[at]cancergetslost[dot]org. We will organize emailed receipts by time received, and notify you if you will be receiving one of the above items (please give us a few days to sort through, organize and notify). Of course we will be grateful for donations made directly to the NBTS in any amount on any day through August 29 as well!

Namaste,

Jared & Jo

Orientation: CGL Charity Webcast & Fundraising Event This Saturday (8/25)!

SATURDAY, AUGUST 25

Noon-4pm PST: live streaming charity webcast w/LOST alum
7pm-11pm PST: fundraising event at Monk Space in LA

WEBCAST

Tune in this Saturday from noon-4pm PST as we host a live webcast with LOST alum (both cast and creative team)! Although the webcast will be streaming live online for everyone around the world to watch, the event itself is closed to the public.

During the webcast, we will be reminiscing and catching up with LOST actors and editors/producers/writers, as well as debuting a series of original videos. We will also be promoting items in our charity auction, as well as reminding viewers that they can make donations directly to the National Brain Tumor Society through specific links (which will be released tomorrow) that will count toward our overall fundraising efforts! As you know, 100% of the proceeds raised during the auction, webcast and fundraising event will benefit the NBTS. Stay tuned for details about the limited edition items we will be giving out in exchange for charitable contributions to the NBTS!

* You don’t need to be a LOST fan to enjoy the broadcast; the guests will be talking about their new films and television shows, and it is very likely that a variety of pop culture topics will be discussed!

FUNDRAISING EVENT

On Saturday at Monk Space in Los Angeles from 7pm-11pm PST, we are hosting an official Cancer Gets LOST fundraising event for the NBTS! We will be featuring LOST trivia, giveaways and more, and items from our charity auction will be on display.

You don’t have to actually be a LOST fan to attend; the event is open to everyone, and will be a fantastic social gathering of fellow pop culture nerds – all for a great cause!

ADMISSION/RAFFLE TICKETS

No advance tickets are necessary, and admission at the door will be $20 ($10 for guests under 21). 100% of all money collected will be donated to the National Brain Tumor Society! We will have separate wristbands for guests over and under 21, so please bring your ID. You may want to bring extra cash, as we have many LOST and other TV related goodies to give away via $2 raffle tickets (proceeds benefit the NBTS), there will be 2 limited edition posters for sale (also to benefit the NBTS), and there will be a food truck outside of the venue (Philly Please)!

ADDRESS & PARKING

Due to space limitations and fire codes that we must observe at the venue, only 200 guests will be allowed inside at any time. Please keep this in mind when planning your travel and evening! There is ample street parking along Western Avenue, and you will see a Cancer Gets LOST banner hanging on the outside of Monk Space. Please read street signs carefully, as the venue itself is on a primarily residential street.

Monk Space: 4414 West 2nd Street, Los Angeles CA 90004

AUTOGRAPHS

** Because our #1 goal is to raise money for the cause through the charity auction, we kindly ask that you please do NOT bring items to the event to get signed by special guests – as doing so would essentially be countering our fundraising efforts via the auction. Thank you in advance for your consideration!

RSVP

Please RSVP to the event on our Facebook event page, or email party[at]cancergetslost[dot]org.

SPECIAL GUESTS

Special guests will be invited, but we cannot guarantee appearances ahead of time. However, they will be announced here as they are confirmed. We are thrilled to announce that actress Andrea Gabriel will be joining us! As you know, she played Nadia on LOST for 6 seasons. She also just filmed an arc on Gossip Girl and will be appearing in Twilight: Breaking Dawn – Part 2.

Namaste,

Jared & Jo

Homecoming: August 25, 2012

With a little help from the friendly familiar face above, we are thrilled to finally announce the details for our official event and charity auction this summer! There are three tiers to what we aim to accomplish with Cancer Gets LOST, all of which will take place to raise money for the National Brain Tumor Society.

1. Wednesday, August 15 – Wednesday, August 29: Online charity auction featuring rare and autographed memorabilia, props, art and more from LOST and other shows (official URL will be posted in early August). 100% of the proceeds will benefit the NBTS.

2. Saturday, August 25, noon-4pm PST: Live streaming Webcast with several of the cast & creative team from LOST and other shows (confirmed guests will be announced later this summer). The recording of this event will be closed to the public but available for everyone to watch online!

3. Saturday, August: 25, 7pm-11pm PST: Cancer Gets LOST Party in Los Angeles (location and time will be announced later this summer). Open to everyone; no-host bar, trivia, giveaways and more! Auction items will be on display. Admission: Cash donation of $5 or more to the NBTS.

We are still in the process of collecting items for the auction, so let us know if you have any original art, authentic official LOST Auction or autographed items to donate!

Save the date and stay tuned, as we continue to secure special guests and auction memorabilia. Thank you in advance for the support and for helping to spread the word – we certainly would not be able to do this without the amazing generosity and enthusiasm of the fans!

We would like to also express our gratitude to Jorge and Beth for taking the time to create the video promo!
