Joe Moscone, affiliated with Hasbro and the Transformers brand for a long time, and who stepped down from his position not too long ago at Hunter PR, reached out to us to promote his current fundraising auction for cancer charity Receptions for Research. Moscone is putting his accumulated Hasbro items, from past SDCCs and more, entirely up for grabs, with all proceeds going to the charity organization. The lot includes the likes of Transformers, G.I. Joe, Star Wars and more! Check out the letter he sent us, take a peek at the photo below, and head here to start bidding, and do some good.

Joe Moscone wrote:Following last year's first successful attempt at auctioning items from my personal toy collection to benefit our fundraising efforts in support of RECEPTIONS FOR RESEARCH: THE GREG OLSEN FOUNDATION, we're back at it again!

I wanted to share details of our eBay charity auction with you. If you're able to spread the word with your friends and readers, we will be eternally grateful.

What it's all about ...

For me, it began seven years ago, when I first learned of Receptions For Research: The Greg Olsen Foundation, an incredible group devoted to providing hospitals, doctors and scholars across the nation the resources necessary to treat and enrich the lives of those affected by various forms of cancer and cardiovascular diseases.

Since 2010, I have led a small group of friends - we call ourselves the New Jersey Grabowskis - in fundraising for the foundation through a variety of local community and social media tactics. Last year, my girlfriend Caitlin and I introduced the charity toy auction into the fray in an attempt to take our fundraising efforts to the next level - and boy did it ever!

My team has now raised more than $80,000 since we began seven years ago, and as we approach the homestretch of this year's campaign, we're hoping that you can help us elevate our fundraising once again by sharing word of our charity eBay auctions with your friends and readers.

We are auctioning a variety of toys and collectibles from our personal collection. I gathered all these items during my many years working with Hasbro's Entertainment Brands and through friends in the industry. 100% of the proceeds from the sale of each and every item in this auction will go to Receptions For Research. Unlike last year, when we posted a dozen or so items a week across a month or so, this year we're putting everything (30+ items) up all at once for a single 7-day run. IT'S LIVE NOW!

Here's a link to our eBay auction:

Again, thank you for your time and please let me know if you're able to help us spread the word for this great cause!

All our best,
Joe & Cait
