Sanctuary For Kids!

November 12, 2009

Amanda Tapping

has once again shown herself to be a real class act

 

Ms. Tapping, Damian Kindler and Jill Bodie of the popular SyFy television show, Sanctuary, have gotten together to create “Sanctuary For Kids” (S4K), a non-profit organization whose mission “is to improve the lives of children around the world who need protection and are in crisis – those who are exploited, dispossessed and threatened.”

According to their website, they will accomplish this by doing the following (great for us too!)

S4K will accomplish this mission in two fundamental ways:

  • Fundraising through online auctions and donations
  • Donating those funds to existing programs around the world where it has been determined an immediate need is evident and a tangible difference will be made by applying these funds

And so to that end, here is their November Auction List:

1.  Skype Chat
This entitles the highest bidder to a twenty minute personal Skypechat with Amanda Tapping, Damian Kindler, and Martin Wood via Skype. Valid for 6 months. Details to be arranged after the auction.

2. Set Tour:
Win a behind the scenes tour and lunch with Amanda Tapping, series star and executive producer, on the set of Sanctuary in Vancouver.

3.  Sanctuary Memorabilia:
Bid for a Sonic Stunner, a prop weapon seen on several episodes on Season two.

4.  Name a Character
The highest bidder of this auction will win the rare opportunity to choose the name of a character in the third season.

        Way to Go, Amanda Tapping!  Keep up the great work!
