When I first started doing this whole “geek girl on the internet” thing, Joe Moscone and I met since he was in charge of the Hasbro boys line for Hunter PR and I was covering a lot of Star Wars and Marvel toys at the time. Joe not only became a colleague but a friend and remains a friend even after he left Hunter to work elsewhere.
One of the reaons I’ve always adored Joe so much is because of his big heart. Every year, Joe raises money for Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation and every year, he gives it his all.
This year, Joe’s added a little something to the mix — he’s collected a lot of toys over the years because of his work at Hunter and he’s putting those toys up on eBay with 100% of the proceeds going to charity. If you’re a collector, or just want to help, you’re going to watch to check it out.
I put the letter Joe sent me after the break. If I’m being honest, I’ll just say this: go help however you can because Joe’s great people and because cancer sucks.
With a little over a month remaining in our fundraising campaign, I’m thrilled to have achieved 75% of my personal goal. Thank you!
From your monetary donations and helping to spread the word of my efforts on social media to connecting me with individuals wanting to provide gift certificates and product for upcoming charity raffles and auctions—you’ve been absolutely amazing! The team at Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation is able to perform their magical work because of the support that each and every one of you deliver. We’re making a difference!
If you have not yet donated to my campaign, please consider doing so. It’s easy. Just visit my page here: http://bit.ly/1KabqX9. Of course, if you’d rather support my campaign by helping to spread the word, I appreciate that immensely as well. Take to your social media channels and share my fundraising page link!
You can also share this link to my charity eBay auctions, where Caitlin Elgin and I are fundraising by selling some awesome exclusive toys and collectibles: http://ebay.to/1H72gry. (Of course, 100% of proceeds from these auctions go to Receptions For Research!)
Lastly, for those of you in the NYC/NJ area, please mark your calendar for our annual Cans For Cancer event on Friday night, June 19th in Jersey City. The fantastic folks at Lucky 7 Tavern and Brooklyn Brewery are helping us once again by donating 100% of the proceeds of all Brooklyn cans sold this night to the New Jersey Grabowskis fundraising campaign.
Every dollar counts, so I’ll continue to chase the money! Thank you for your continued support.
