The honest truth is that children undergoing cancer treatments are immunocompromised, making them one of the groups most susceptible to COVID-19. But for children with cancer, treatment can’t stop – despite the pandemic. Many families are facing even more economic uncertainty during this time.
Cancer Gets Lost would like to help Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation provide critical services for these families. Therefore, we decided to host a new and smaller online charity auction – and 100% of all proceeds from this auction will be donated to Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation COVID-19 Emergency Fund; every cent raised!
For those that may not be interested in bidding on any items in our charity auction but are still interested in supporting the cause, you can of course make a donation in any amount directly to Alex’s Lemonade Stand. Here is Cancer Gets Lost’s ALSF fundraising page; we do not earn or keep a cent – every donation made directly or via our auction will go to ALSF!
Our charity auction is now open in Preview Mode and for registration, and the auction itself will be open from Friday, May 1 at 8:15am PT through Saturday, May 9 at 4pm PT! LINK: https://www.32auctions.com/CGL2020
All items in this particular CGL charity auction are photos, art and small posters from some of your favorite TV shows! All are kindly signed by a variety of actors, producers and more. To preview many of these items, please see the slideshow at the end of this post!
SHIPPING RESTRICTIONS & DELAYS
BEFORE you register to participate in this CGL charity auction, please note the following!
- Due to CGL’s recent & complicated international shipping issues because of world events, this auction is open to U.S. & Canada residents only.
- However! If you live outside of the U.S./Canada AND plan to attend a Con we are attending in future, we will hand-carry items to deliver to you in person (if you don’t mind waiting). This includes the next Conageddon, ATX TV Festival and SDCC. Please contact us in advance of registration if so!
- ALL shipping will be delayed, likely to take place in June. Subject to change, given the current state of the world. We appreciate your patience in advance!
- We have decided to provide FREE shipping for all items in this charity auction! All items will be shipped in rigid envelopes or poster tubes, and include both insurance and tracking.
If you bid on & win an item in this charity auction – following close of auction, you will be directed back here to our website for all payment details and instructions. CGL accepts PayPal only, via our fiscal sponsor FJC, and the donation link lives here on CGL’s site only (you will not be making any payments via 32auctions, our auction host site).
FUTURE CGL CHARITY AUCTIONS
We are very aware and respectful of the fact that everyone is trying to save money right now, or at least cutting back on non-essential purchases. Please know that there will be plenty of opportunities in the future for everyone to participate in our charity auctions & bid on similar items!
Thank you so much for your interest in supporting CGL and Alex’s Lemonade Stand Foundation for childhood cancer.
Let’s all Bid For The Kids!
