Everything about Auction, eh?

Help us help kids: Contributions wanted for TV, eh?’s charity auction

Almost a year ago, this site came back from the dead thanks to the injection of another partner in Greg David and the generosity of our Indiegogo contributors. To celebrate the first birthday of TV, eh? 2.0 on August 5 — and pay some of that generosity forward — we’re reviving our charity auction. 100% of the proceeds will go to Kids Help Phone, a free, anonymous and confidential phone and on-line professional counselling service for youth. The previous auctions raised $10,000 for them.

In advance of the auction launch, we are asking for contributions to the cause — particularly TV-related swag or experiences, but anything that might grab the interest of our readers. So far we have some amazing items that will go up for bid: a set visit and walk-on role, one-on-one career advice from a senior writer, memorabilia from various shows, DVDs, books, magazine subscriptions, and more.

If you or your organization have items or experiences you can contribute, please contact us. And look for the auction to go live on August 5.

Thanks to all the winners, bidders, donors, and those who helped spread the word about the TV, eh? auction in support of Kids Help Phone. It was a much smaller auction than last time but we still raised $1770 for the charity.

But some of the reasons I took so long to mount the auction and why I wanted to keep it small are the same reasons I’ve decided to put TV, eh? on hiatus. There’s nothing wrong, just shifting priorities and wanting to move on from this commitment. I’ll continue to write about television and other topics on other sites as it moves me, and cheerlead Canadian TV from further on the sidelines. I won’t pull the site down — it will remain up as a resource and on the off-chance I or someone else decides to revive it in the future.

I’ll wrap things up by the end of the year, do a couple more podcasts with my fabulous co-host Anthony Marco, and then move on to other web adventures. It’s been a wonderful ride, these past seven years. I’m grateful to everyone for the support and will always feel like I was part of a great community of people — and hope to remain so to a lesser degree. But it’s time to retire at least for the foreseeable future from running the site.

Thanks again to everyone for the support.
