This event will benefit the Dear Jack Foundation, a charity for Young Adult Leukemia and Lymphoma patients. This is near and dear to my heart because my friend just lost her husband to Leukemia. They are both 26 years old.
Here's the write up:

Hey, Rachel, I'm just now seeing this – not sure how I missed it. I'm not an LA boardie, or even close. I'm so sorry to you and to your friend for the terrible loss! Twenty six – it's just not fair. Damn cancer.
Jazzed about the robot auction – what a cool idea! And of course OK Go is amazing, being involved in things like this. I wonder if a pic of Dan's robot will ever surface.
Thanks, Raina. :-) It's been a hard 3 months, but we are pushing on. Actually, I've got the full story on my blog if you want to know more. http://www.rachelschain.com/blog
Anyway, it looks like the auction will be pushed to Ebay too. I don't know for a fact, but I have good reason to think it will. I'll definitely post a link to Dan's robot if that happens. If not, well, I've been promised a picture of Dan's robot. :-)
First of all, 23. VERY appropos.
Secondly, the auction is now ONLINE! http://shop.ebay.com/analogpla…..mp;_ipg=25
Here's Dan's Robot:
I just bid on it a bunch of times. I think someone's got a rather high bid on it on ebay because everytime I bid someone outbid me. But hey, at least I made them spend more money. Pete Wentz's robot is only at $26, and now thanks to me, Dan's is up to $48. :-D
