Deadly Class Star Raising Money For Charities With Instagram Auctions

One of Deadly Class's villains is turning downtime into charity work. Siobhan Williams, who played the role of Brandy in Syfy's TV adaptation of Rick Remender and Wes Craig's Image Comics series, took to Instagram to auction her Kings Dominion hoodie to benefit charitable organizations struggling through the novel coronavirus pandemic as economic uncertainty is slowing a lot of people's donations. Earlier this week, Williams shared a photo of herself wearing the hoodie and asked fans to send her bids via DM, and then revealed the name of the winner on her page, promising to do similar auctions in the coming days.

Rather than select the charity, Williams encouraged fans to send her their bid as well as selecting their own charity. She suggested charities that serve animals, since she is a longtime advocate for those. Back when Deadly Class was preparing to air, Williams and a number of her co-stars offered up autographed comics, video messages, and more to people who contributed to VOKRA, a no-kill cat shelter in the Vancouver area.

You can see her original post below.

SOLD: THANK YOU so much @kris007brown for your generous generous donation to @animalleague - the world's largest no-kill animal rescue/shelter. Many pets have been abandoned in this time, and it's crucial shelters get the finances they need to avoid euthanizing animals. Many volunteers feel unsafe going in to their shifts, or are sick themselves, and your help goes a long way! Stay tuned because I'll be auctioning off other items in the next few days! ❤️ Who wants my #DEADLYCLASS hoodie? They were gifts that the cast got - we wore them in our hand - to-hand combat class. It's a ladies small. I love it but I'd like to auction it off for a donation to charity. Please DM me in the next 48 hours with your bid and the charity you'd donate to. Wildlife/animal rescues preferred. Or if you volunteer to foster an animal - even better. Dm me. @deadlyclasssyfy @rickremender @milesorion1 @syfy
