Syfy online auction to benefit KaBOOM!

It’s no secret that play helps to cultivate the imagination. And conversely, imagination enriches the play experience. An ordinary stick can become a sword, or a lightsaber, or a magic wand.

While our imaginative capabilities dwindle somewhat with age, adults still like to make-believe—in fact, Syfy has established an entire enterprise around “imagination-based” entertainment, including fantasy, paranormal, adventure, and of course, science fiction.

Are you a loyal fan of Stargate Universe, Eureka, or Ghost Hunters? Syfy is now offering you a chance to bid on iconic items from its most popular shows—and best of all, all proceeds benefit KaBOOM!. We’ll be using the proceeds to inspire children’s imaginations by giving a deserving community an Imagination Playground™ in a Box.

Bidding for this week’s auction item starts today: a trip for two to Comic-Con International in 2011. You’ll have passes to the preview night, front-row seats at all Syfy panels, and access to the convention’s most “star-studded party.”

Bidding starts at $500. Good luck! May the force be with you.
