I have this friend named Lisa who is, no lie, one of the coolest people in the world. Seriously, she seems to have the coolest life, and sometimes I like to live vicariously though her. Anyway, she's been doing the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer for a couple years now, and she's raised a whole bunch of money. This year she has a goal of raising $10,000, and Lisa is just cool enough to be able to do that. She's come up with a nifty idea to help her do that; in her own words:

Project Teddy Bear started as a realization that, living in New York City, I've got a lot more access to popular celebrities than most of my friends... and that I could use that to help me raise money for the walk. So, I bought a bunch of little stuffed bears from the Avon site and started hanging out around stage doors asking movie and television stars doing stints on Broadway and off-Broadway to sign them. I also went after a bunch of bona fide theater stars. We got off to a great start the first weekend successfully getting Hugh Jackman, Richard Dreyfuss, Jerry Orbach, Peter Scolari and Elizabeth Berkley. They got the momentum going and, before I knew it, I had to order more bears!

Besides the bears (and there's a TON of those), she also has some other cool stuff, like some signed LOTR memorabilia, a signed poster of the Afghan Girl, and a whole lot more. The link to the auctions is here:

(You can also find more info in her own journal, [livejournal.com profile] laughingirl)

If you can't bid on something yourself, it would rock if you could pimp this out to communities/groups that would be interested (for example, if you know some Harry Potter fans, maybe point out the Daniel Radcliffe bear to them!). Lisa is a wonderful person and this is a great cause, and I'd really love to see this take off.
