Our next charity auction will launch in early 2020! The Cancer Gets Lost 2020 Online Charity Auction will be open for fans around the world from February 8 – 15. Because 815!
We Have To Give Back!
The 10 year anniversary of the LOST series finale is next year, so CGL will be returning to our roots; our next charity auction features all LOST items! Most of our auction items are signed or rare, and kindly donated by fans and actors, producers, writers, etc. Contributors thus far include Carlton Cuse, Michael Emerson, Michael Giacchino, Damon Lindelof and many more behind the scenes!
If you are interested in possibly contributing a rare, authentic or signed item for this auction, please email us at your convenience (cancergetslost at gmail dot com). And thank you for the consideration!
CGL hosts the auction itself on an external auction host site, and we will share the link here once it is open in Preview Mode (late January 2020). Later this year, we will post pre and post auction details, for those of you that want to participate.
100% of the net proceeds (100% of every cent raised after we pay our vendors) from the 2020 Cancer Gets Lost Online Charity Auction will be donated to the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. LLS is the largest funder of cutting-edge research to advance cures, and leading source of free blood cancer information, education and support for patients, survivors, families and healthcare professionals.
We selected LLS to receive our auction net proceeds in honor of my father, who is battling a rare blood cancer (but currently winning the battle!).
CGL Charity Auction Transparency
Full disclosure: we fund Cancer Gets Lost ourselves, with our own money. CGL is a 501c(3)-sponsored organization. Our fiscal sponsor FJC, A Foundation of Philanthropic Funds (a 501c(3) public charity that provides management of charitable giving), oversees all of the financials for Cancer Gets Lost – including our PayPal account. FJC has earned a top 4-star rating on Charity Navigator!
Neither myself nor CGL Co-Founder Jared Wong keep or earn any money raised in any of our charity auctions (we have not received/earned even one cent from any Cancer Gets Lost charity auction, nor do we plan to). CGL is a labor of love that we work on in our spare time, outside of our full-time jobs!
Stay tuned for more details, and please follow us on Twitter (@CancerGetsLost) for frequent auction item previews!
Thank you so much for your very kind support of our charitable endeavors.
-Jo Garfein (Executive Director & Co-Founder)
