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!
