A24’s ‘Everything Everywhere All at Once’ charity auction raised over $500,000

Film studio A24’s auction of props(Opens in a new tab) from its critically acclaimed hit Everything Everywhere All at Once has garnered over $500,000 for charity. The auction, held between from Feb. 23 to Mar. 2, appealed to the film’s devoted fanbase, with 43 original offerings from the set.

The items ranged from lead actor Michelle Yeoh’s costumes to the hot dog hands to the googly-eyed rock. The item that went for the highest bid, by far, is Raccacoonie — bringing in $90,000. The racoon puppet, whose name is a tongue-in-cheek reference to Pixar’s Ratatouille, was pictured atop actor Harry Shum Jr.’s head in the movie.

The auction was divided into three segments, each devoted to an individual charity selected by the movie’s directors Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert (aka Daniels).

The “Laundry and Taxes” lot is being donated to the Laundry Workers Center(Opens in a new tab), which works to improve the lives and working conditions of those in the laundry, warehouse, and food service industries. The category “Mementos from the Multiverse” is dedicated to the Asian Mental Health Project(Opens in a new tab), which seeks to empower Pan-Asian communities and provide them with mental health care, education and resources. Finally, the “In Another Life Auction” will go towards the Transgender Law Center(Opens in a new tab), the largest national trans-led organization fighting for trans liberation and lives.
