Last year our charity of choice was the American Cancer Society, in honor of Jo’s mother-in-law, who has pancreatic cancer.

Our primary fundraiser was our online charity auction, hosted by Blacksparrow Auctions, which was open from September 1-27, 2014. 100% of the proceeds from items sold in the auction on behalf of CGL were donated directly to the American Cancer Society, and a portion of all proceeds from items consigned by Blacksparrow was also donated to the ACS!

In addition, CGL hosted a silent auction onsite at LOST 2014 in September, and 100% of the proceeds from this auction were donated directly to the ACS.


For those of you who have kindly inquired about making contributions to the ACS via Cancer Gets LOST and/or would prefer to make a financial donation rather than bid on items in the charity auction, here are the simple instructions.

  1. Go directly to the ACS site and fill out a Charitable Contribution to the American Cancer Society form. You do not need to designate that it is for CGL; donate in honor or memory of anyone you choose.
  2. Email us your donation receipt for any contribution amount (jo at jopinionated dot com), and we will send you either a CGL wristband or poster. Your choice!
  3. Your name will be added to our list of CGL supporters.
