It's the Darth Vader bear!

Well, almost. It's the James Earl Jones Breast Cancer Bear, and my friend laughingirl is auctioning it off along with dozens of others, to raise money as she walks in ALL EIGHT of this year's Avon Walks for breast cancer relief, all around the country.

The auction is for a stuffed breast cancer awareness bear with an autograph tag signed by James Earl Jones. Click the "Seller's Current Auctions" link on the above page for links to the other bear auctions currently going on, including autographs from such celebs as Cyndi Lauper, Elvis Costello, Bradley Whitford, Jane Kaczmarek, Jeffrey Tambor, Matt Damn, Sean Astin, and Christina Applegate. Right now, Sean Astin is out in front in the bidding! DId you bid, kinnerc?

There's more info about Lisa's walks, and links to make a donation (EVEN A COUPLE OF BUCKS WILL HELP!) or buy related merchandise to help out, at her web site.

There are several more sci-fi-related bears coming up in the next few days, including a couple whose autographs were procured by USS Accord's own LCDR Marlo Del Toro (aka marlokat at this year's Shore Leave!

If you're interested in any of the bears, by all means bid, and if not, please take a moment to donate a few (or many!) bucks to help out with Lisa's fundraising.
