The poster is number 7/150 and 100% of the proceeds from this auction benefit Team Dear Jack Foundation at the 2012 Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walks.
While many of you have sent the sweetest and most supportive messages in my absence (I want you to know that I have read and appreciate all of them), I regret to inform you that I do not intend to return to making regular posts on this blog. In the months that I have taken off, it has become clear to me that my time here is a thing of the past. While I enjoyed all of the time I spent here and all of the conversations I’ve had and the friends I’ve made, I think that as I am on the verge of graduating college and embarking on the rest of my adult my life (thus diminishing my free time), this blog is destined to become a fond memory from my past. [Plus, based on my Andrew McMahon tracked tag, it appears that there is a surplus of new Andrew-related blogs out there ;)]
However, with last year’s incredible success, I do wish to continue fundraising for Team Jack’s Mannequin/Dear Jack Foundation and hopefully break the $2,000 threshold. As I know many of you have realized, my name is Lindsay Watts [platformfire.tumblr.com] (sorry to shatter the illusion for anyone who enjoyed my anonymity). I will be selling wristbands and Jack’s Mannequin/Something Corporate memorabilia again this year to raise money.
My first project is a set of bracelets with lyrics to one of my personal favorites from People and Things, “Keep Rising.”
“So they plugged my wires in and told me I was born to fight”
As always, these bracelets are available on eBay and come in one standard adult size at $5 each. However, this year, there will be a $2 shipping charge for domestic orders as well (with the volume of orders I received last year, offering free shipping cut severely into the proceeds). Cash orders will still be accepted (inquire at firstname.lastname@example.org).
Follow my personal blog @ platformfire.tumblr.com for further fundraising updates.
Thank you for your time and support over the last year and a half. It’s been a good run.
