Long time friend of MUReview…and well, of mine, Joe Moscone is taking his toy collection to the streets for charity and he wants you to come with him! In a series of auctions on eBay, Joe and Friends will be auctioning off a ton of great SDCC exclusive history and more to raise money for Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation. The Greg Olsen Foundation is 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.
The cause is worthy, the toys are incredible, go, bid, win! Click Here! To check out the auctions.
You can donate directly if you don’t want to buy any toys at the two links below too!
100% of the money raised from these auctions is donated to Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation
Wouldn’t it be great if we could destroy cancer and cardiovascular disease already?
