The auction, currently taking place on eBay, is set to benefit crew healthcare during a strike by writers and directors. The strike has resulted in the shutdown of most of the entertainment industry for over 100 days, leaving crew members without work.
The auction proceeds will go to the Motion Picture & Television Fund, which provides healthcare for IATSE, LIUNA, and Teamsters. In the United States, healthcare is not free as opposed to the NHS system in the United Kingdom, with many Americans out of pocket through ongoing medical and prescription bills, despite amendments ensuring the safety of the most financially vulnerable US citizens. Sadly, however, that is sometimes not enough.
Items or experiences you can bid on include:
– The cast of “Bob’s Burgers” will sing a song written just for you.
– Watercolor Portrait of Your Dog by John Lithgow.
– Bob Odenkirk & David Cross will Join you for Dinner.
– Tom Waits’ personal fedora.
– Zoom session with Sarah Silverman.
– An official “Weird” Hawaiian shirt signed by Daniel Radcliffe and Weird Al.
– A blue apron from “The Bear” signed by Jeremy Allen White, Ebon Moss-Bachrach, Ayo Edebiri, and more.
