Hollywood’s elite has resorted to online auctioning amid the ongoing SAG-AFTRA and WGA strikes.
A plethora of stars such as Adam Scott, Lena Dunham and more have taken to eBay to sell off strange things in an attempt to make their coin while protesters are picketing studios.
On eBay, a new tab has opened up titled “The Union Solidarity Coalition” where celebs are letting fans purchase their talents and items.
According to the site, “net proceeds [are going to] benefit our crew healthcare fund.”
The donations are set to go to the Coalition’s Motion Picture and Television Fund.
The fundraiser includes a multitude of listings from A-listers across film and TV that viewers can buy in an effort to raise money for crew members who are financially suffering during the protests.
One listing shows the “Parks and Recreation” star, 50, offering to walk your dog for an hour — for $3,050!
However, your doggo can only be located in the Los Angeles area.
Or if you want something a bit more creative, the “Girls” creator, 37, will happily walk into your home a paint a mural for a mere three grand.
With Busy Philipps, one can take a pottery class with her in New York City for $2,800.
“The Crown” alum John Lithgow can even use watercolors to varnish a portrait of your pooch. The price? Just $4,000 please.
Maggie Gyllenhaal is letting fans ask her questions for 20 minutes for just $610.
For a more intimate event, Bob Odenkirk and David Cross will have dinner with one lucky fan. But you better ask them if their $3,700 price tag comes with wine and cheese.
Dunham is the founder of The Union Solidarity Coalition and she spoke to TheWrap recently about the ambitious project.
“We founded TUSC because, as striking writers, we feel an incredible kinship with the crew that make our jobs possible—and right now they are hurting, especially when it comes to healthcare,” she said in a statement.
The Golden Globe winner went on: “We are dazzled by all the brilliant minds who have offered goods and experiences to auction—I am continuously thrilled to be part of this vital group, and we are continually grateful to the crew who have stood in solidarity with us on the picket lines.”
