I’m John Bierly from the PEACE Fund, a charity founded by Highlander actor Adrian Paul to Protect, Educate and Aid Children Everywhere. We’re conducting our third charity auction right now, and we have several LOTR-related items in our auction. I wanted to ask if you guys might be willing to mention our auction on your website.

Our auction is here: www.adrianpaulpeace.org

Item 5 is an autographed photo of Andy Serkis as Gollum. (Item 15 is another Andy autograph, as King Kong.) Item 36 is a package of autographs including John Rhys-Davies as Gimli and Sala Baker as Sauron. (Package also includes one Star Wars and one Narnia autograph.)

Thanks so much for your time and your consideration. I really appreciate it. And here’s our press release:

The PEACE Fund, the charity organization founded by Highlander actor Adrian Paul to Protect, Educate and Aid Children Everywhere, began its third charity auction on Monday, May 29, 2006.

The PEACE Fund’s two auctions in 2005 raised more than $100,000 for children’s causes, focusing primarily on Tsunami relief organizations. In April 2006, the PEACE Fund donated $15,000 to the Children’s Organ Transplant Association (www.cota.org) and is preparing to raise even more funds for children with this latest auction.

Items include props and costumes from the upcoming film Highlander: The Source, rare photos, costumes and hand-annotated scripts from Paul’s previous projects, telephone calls from Paul himself and a variety of autographed photos and other donated items from Harry Potter, Lord of the Rings, Star Trek and other genre series and films. A package of Star Trek commemorative plates and autographed cast photos was put together to celebrate this year’s 40th Anniversary of Star Trek.

To view and bid on auction items, please visit the PEACE Fund’s website at www.adrianpaulpeace.org . The auction ends on Monday, June 5, 2006.
