We recently reported on one Disney fan deciding to have a bit of fun and create a sketch the Figment popcorn bucket and list it on eBay — with the money going towards charity!
Now, as this sketch goes viral, several others are sketching the Figment popcorn bucket and also listing it on eBay.
Julia, a freelance writer and editor from Florida, originally listed her sketch with two goals in mind — “to give people some joy about a very silly situation involving popcorn buckets” and to raise some money for charity.
Now, many others are jumping on the bandwagon and listing bad sketches of the Figment popcorn bucket. The difference? A majority of these listings are not raising money for charity.
It seems that several Disney fans are just getting a good laugh out of this craze, but it is unfortunate to see that not many are raising the money for charity.
We do want to note that there are a handful of listings that note part of the proceeds will go to charities including St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. In fact, one artist listed their sketch of the Figment popcorn bucket and is donating 50% of the proceeds to St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital. You can view the listing here.
If you are planning on purchasing a sketch with the goal of raising money for charities, please make sure you check the description prior to purchasing.
