Bid on a bear, beat breast cancer

me_teddybearAt w00tstock 2.5.1 in San Francisco, fan Eileen Mietz on behalf of Lisa Spodak approached all of us performing and asked us to pose for a picture with a teddy bear and sign a card. OK, sure, why not? I've done weirder things.

Then I saw what it was for: Lisa's raising money to fight breast cancer. She gets people to pose with the bear, then auctions them off to support the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer. If you're a geek -- and face it , you are -- the list of people Lisa has is impressive: Wil Wheaton, Felicia Day, Brent Spiner, Adam Savage, Grant Imahara, Rosario Dawson, and lots more.

The auction for my signed card and bear is on eBay right now, and it closes October 6th. As I write this, there's one bid for $25.00. I sent a note to Lisa, and told her that I would throw in a signed copy of my book Death from the Skies! to the auction winner as well.

So get in there and start bidding! How much money can we raise to fight cancer?
