The Union Solidarity Coalition (TUSC) is hosting an online auction to support members’ access to healthcare during the joint WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes. Available items include Tom Wait’s signed fedora, the script for the Atlanta pilot autographed by Donald Glover, and the Hawaiian shirt from Weird, signed by Weird Al Yankovic and Daniel Radcliffe. Other items include a personalized song by the cast of Bob’s Burgers, dinner with Bob Odenkirk and David Cross, and items from Party Girl and Dazed and Confused autographed by Parker Posey. Check it out here.

Productions across television and film have come to a halt in the wake of the strikes, jeopardizing crew members’ access to healthcare plans contingent upon working a minimum number of days to qualify. “We founded TUSC because, as striking writers, we feel an incredible kinship with the crew (IATSE. LiUNA and Teamsters) that make our jobs possible—and right now they are hurting, especially when it comes to healthcare,” TUSC co-founder Lena Dunham said in a statement. 

All proceeds from the auction will benefit the TUSC Fund of the Motion Picture and Television Fund
