One of the best parts of running a website is that you meet a ton of people. Among those I’ve met, Joe Moscone’s one of the best! I worked with Joe during his time at Hunter PR, the agency that Hasbro uses. Since 2010, Joe’s supported Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, an incredible organization devoted to providing hospitals, doctors and scholars across the nation the resources necessary to treat and enrich the lives of those affected by various forms of cancer and cardiovascular diseases. Over the past few years, he’s raised nearly $59,000!
Joe’s kicked off his fundraising for this year (make a donation here), and he’s doing something pretty special – auctioning off toys and collectibles from his personal stash. This includes tons of previous convention exclusives, retailer exclusives and other awesome collectibles. Auctions will be running between now and mid-June, and 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each and every item in this auction will go to Receptions For Research. Our plan is to post several auctions through mid-June, each with a new selection of approximately 15-20 items. The first wave of auction includes the SDCC 2012 My Little Pony ‘Derpy’, the Star Wars Celebration III Darth Vader figure with voice chip, the SDCC 2007 Marvel Legends Stan Lee / Spider-Man action figure and many more. You can see the entire list of auction here.
