paul-wesley-autographed-bearWe should have posted about this 5 days ago, but better late than never. Less than 14 hours left to bid on an autographed bear signed by Paul Wesley in support of Breast Cancer Awareness sponsored by Lisa Walks.

Here is some info about what she does:

My name is Lisa and every year I walk in the Avon Walk for Breast Cancer…. a 2-day, marathon-and-a-half walk to raise money and awareness to fight breast cancer.

One of the ways I raise money is to ask celebrities to sign little tags that I attach to breast cancer bears and auction off along with a picture of the celebrity with a bear.

Also, the winner of the auction not only receives the autographed bear and a photo of Paul, but Lisa is throwing in a photo of Ian Somerhalder (2006) as well.

Vampire-Diaries.net has been keeping a close eye on the auction, and has all the information you need including the link to the auction. So please head on over there and get to bidding!!
