This year our charity of choice is the American Cancer Society, in honor of Jo’s mother-in-law, who has pancreatic cancer.
Our primary fundraiser is our online charity auction, hosted by Blacksparrow Auctions, open from September 1-27, 2014. 100% of the proceeds from items sold in the auction on behalf of CGL will be donated directly to the American Cancer Society, and a portion of all proceeds from items consigned by Blacksparrow will also be donated to the ACS!
In addition, CGL will be hosting a silent auction onsite at LOST 2014 in September, and 100% of the proceeds from this auction will be 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.
- 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.
- 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!
- Your name will be added to our list of 2014 CGL ACS supporters.
