Last year, I created a charity auction as a surprise holiday gift for Aldis called “Angels for Aldis”. The auction was a special Christmas event consisting of donated items and 100% of the proceeds benefitted Aldis’s favorite charity. The auction raised $2,500, which was then conveyed to L.A. Mission in his name. You can find a link to the L.A. Mission and to information on the 2010 auction at the bottom of this post.
With last year’s amazing success, especially since the auction was planned in only 3 weeks, I have decided to attempt to create an annual “Angels for Aldis” auction. Last year, most items were Leverage-related donations Aldis’ mother, Electric Entertainment, Christian Kane, as well as donations from musicians Riley Smith, Steve Carlson, and Jason Manns. Additionally, we had a lot of items donated by fans. I’m working on getting more items from the celebs but I need the fans to participate as well!
I would like to try to double the Angels for Aldis donation in 2011 but I need your help to do so. Will you be willing to donate something to the cause? It can be something you create – jewelry, pottery, clothing, fanfiction, fanvideos, graphics, etc – or something you have that others might want – autographed items from celebs, rare items like out-of-print CDs or magazines, convention or concert memorabilia, etc. (doesn’t have to be Leverage based – we auctioned off a David Boreanaz autographed photo!) or even services you can provide – webpage design, etc. There are a lot of things fans can do that other fans would be interested in purchasing! Dig deep for a good cause!
If you’re willing to contribute, please contact me as soon as possible – firstname.lastname@example.org
