I’m really pleased to say that the sale of the green Cthulhu on ebay for Cancer Research UK sold this afternoon for £180 and I’m blown away by how much it went for. I honestly didn’t expect it to go for so much and thank you very much to the winner (who ever you are), I hope it helps you to keep the shoggoths at bay. Remember, all of my Cthulhu statues come with a guarantee that you won’t be eaten by a Great Old One or your money back, no quibble.
Well done to Mikimus Prime/Mike Jackson for organising it and the huge success of his auction in raising £633 and well done to everyone else who donated. I did bid on one of the items, sadly I was outbid but it was good to remember some of the fun in bidding on ebay.
Thank you to everyone on Facebook and Twitter who retweeted or shared the info. I know some of you have no idea who Cthulhu is, but he knows who you are now. (psssst go edjucakat yurselfs wikipedia.org/wiki/Cthulhu )

As a result of this auction I’ve started thinking about listing the green as an option on Etsy with a donation to Cancer Research UK for each one, but I’m worried about devaluing the one that just sold. Possible alternative options include different colours but green is obviously the preferred version as the statue is described as that shade in the story.
I’m going to have a ponder over this.
