Chakilla Bananas for Charity!

The peel has stuck again!Tis the season for giving, and what better way to get people to donate than to offer them something cool in return?

During Spooky Empire’s Orlando Screamfest this year I took around a couple of realistic prop bananas to be signed by a number of the attending stars. I made a promise to them that these yellow fruits would not become part of my collection but would be used to raise money for the US Marines’ Toys For Tots Foundation.

Being a man of my word, I have waited until the most charitable of seasons to create the auction. Click here to check out the eBay auction and start bidding! Get the word out! Let the public know that killer bananas want to help needy children!

Here is the list of who signed the Chakilla Bananas:

  • Doug Bradley (Hellraiser‘s Pinhead)
  • Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th and Hatchet)
  • David Naughton (American Werewolf in London)
  • William Forsythe (Devil’s Rejects, Halloween ’07)
  • Michael Berryman (Hills Have Eyes)
  • Danielle Harris (Halloween 4, 5 & ’07)
  • Anne Gaybis (F13: Part III)
  • Bill Hinzman (Night of the Living Dead)
  • Barry Anderson (Special Effects Guru for Day of the Dead & Ripley’s Believe It or Not!)
  • Tom Savini (SFX Master)
  • J. Larose (Troy the chain victim in Saw III)
  • Sean Clark (Horror’s Hallowed Grounds)
  • Alex Vincent (Child’s Play)
  • Nathan Hanneman (Editor of HorrorHound Magazine)

    Please head on over to eBay and help out.

    Thank you, and Happy Holidays.

      Just a little follow up as to why I am not using eBay’s Mission Fish thing to donate the money to Toys for Tots. Mission Fish basically takes a heafty percentage of the final bid price for themselves. Yes, they take 5-20% just so they can send the money to the organization I chose. That makes no sense since Toys For Tots’ site has a whole page dedicated to PayPal donations. This means I can easily track where the funds go and so can the winning bidder.

      Anyone with half a brain can figure out how to click on a button and tell them how much they wish to donate. There’s no need for this third party to take any portion of the charity funds. I know this hurts the auctions appeal and cred, but I am in this to help TFT, not some other company looking to line their pockets for providing some lame middleman service.
