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.
