Save the boobs!

It's bedtime now but I wanted to quickly let you guys know about an important charity auction.

Every year, my friend laughingirl walks in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer to raise money to fight breast cancer. She's actually raised more than $100,000 since she started in 2002!

One of the ways she raises money is by collecting celebrity autographs that she attaches to little stuffed bears and auctions off along with a photo of the celebrity with a bear.

She's got a batch of auctions live right now including Julia Roberts, Seth Green, Tori Higginson, Brendan Fraser, Malcom McDowell, Kate Hewlett, Jewel Staite, Sean Astin, David Hewlett, Jason Dohring, Beau Bridges, Michael Emerson, Cliff Simon, Adam Pascal and Anthony Rapp (I will fight you for him!!!) and many more. I actually helped her get quite a few of these at Shore Leave and Dragon*Con this year. Definitely some of the easiest charity work I've ever done. ;)

Please stop by her site (http://www.lisawalks.com) or her eBay page (http://shop.ebay.com/merchant/lisaspodak_avonwalker_W0QQ_nkwZQQ_armrsZ1QQ_fromZQQ_mdoZ) to check it out.

Also it's laughingirl's birthday today!!!, so go make her happy and bid on some bears, except for the Anthony Rapp bear. (Or some lovely artist sketches that she has up. Not quite as cute as the bears, but really nice nonetheless.) Or if you can't bid on anything, pimp this in your journal and in your communities. Hey, it's for a fantastic cause. Bedtime now! Later, skaterz.

Oh man. Bethany would shank you for the Anthony Rapp bear, I'm sure of it. Renthead, she is. Anyway, can't buy or anything, but I can pimp it out I'd think, considering I watched you do some of the work! ;)

You were very helpful, fending off the riff-raff with your sonic screwdriver. :)

Welcome! I totally ganked the wording from you're friend who posted to the Veronica Mars community. :) I posted it to a bunch of Stargate, Hewlett, and Jewel Staite comms so hopefully they help!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY!!!! :D

It's so confusing to me how some bears are going up quickly and then others there are barely any action on. I'm wondering/hoping people are stalking the auctions to bid last minute. I bet a bear signed by Barack would be HUGE.
