The auction for this 11.11.11 Dear Jack Benefit poster signed by Andrew McMahon, Kevin “Clutch” Page and Brian Ireland of Something Corporate ends TODAY at 8PM EST/5PM PST. 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.
Tour posters are back! One of my followers was thoughtful enough to send me some more tour posters to help raise money for Team Jack’s Mannequin!
I have also added two auctions!
The first one is for a Jack’s Mannequin poster. These posters have only been sold on tour (as of yet). This one was signed by Andrew after the show. Bidding starts at $10 (which is the price of the unsigned poster in the merch store)!
The second auction is for a signed 11/11/11 Dear Jack Benefit poster. These posters were hand signed and numbered by Andrew, and this one is number 9 out of 150. Something Corporate made a surprise appearance at the concert, and this poster was also signed by Brian Ireland and Kevin “Clutch” Page! Bidding starts at $20 (which is the sale price of the poster signed by Andrew at the merch store)!
As always, I WILL FIGHT bracelets are for sale, but only for a limited time! One week from now, these bracelets will be removed from my eBay store to make sure that all money, orders, and donations can be accounted for by the end of the year (this is because PayPal has a new policy where they put a hold on your money for 3 weeks). Get one while you can!
As always, 100% of the proceeds from all of these items will benefit Team Jack’s Mannequin/Dear Jack Foundation at this year’s Leukemia & Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night Walks!
You can check out all of these items in my online store here!
It’s been a good summer for the Dear Jack Foundation (DJF). Thanks so much to Adam, Leah, and all the DJF Warped Tour volunteers. They did an amazing job getting the word out and I am very thankful for their time and hard work.
We are also kicking off the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society’s Light the Night walks this month. We know its a tricky economy to raise money in, that’s why we need all the help we can get. LLS is behind some of the most cutting edge cancer research and with your help we can push the ball forward in finding cures for those affected by these brutal diseases. Please join us and know that even the smallest amount counts.
