Still shedding a few tears over last week’s break-up-alooza on Glee?
Darren Criss feels your pain. And he wants to turn it into something positive. “So many tears, so many tissues needed from last night’s episode — so why not do some good while we’re at it?” The Glee star tweeted over the weekend, linking to a charity auction that includes tissue boxes (clever!) signed by each of three ex-couples. Finchel fans have pushed the price of the box signed by Lea Michele (Rachel) and Cory Montieth (Finn) up to a current bid of $2,000, while the one signed by Darren Criss (Blaine) and Chris Colfer (Kurt) has hit $1,850, and the one signed by Naya Rivera (Santana) and Heather Morris (Brittany) is currently topped out at $1,550.
The auction — which ends on Friday — will benefit several different charities chosen by the cast. According to Charitybuzz, Criss will be donating, at least in part, to the Trevor Project, an organization he’s been involved with in the past, and Lea Michele wants the proceeds raised from her lot to go to the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.
It’s certainly the most expensive tissue box I’ve ever heard of, but it’s hard to complain with the proceeds going to charity. If only they were also auctioning Rachel’s killer white jacket from her breakup scene (above). That I might break the bank for.
