The strike by the Screen Actors Guild–American Federation of Television and Radio Artists has been going on for two months now, with no end in sight.
Actors, directors, and writers have started getting creative about how they can raise money to support people who are out of work.
One way in particular has been these *really* creative auctions launched by the Union Solidarity Coalition to benefit crew healthcare funds.
They include Lena Dunham painting a mural in your house.
You can bid on a watercolor portrait of your dog done by John Lithgow.
And there's even an auction for Natasha Lyonne to help you solve the New York Times Sunday crossword.
There's also an auction where Adam Scott walks your dog for an hour.
Sarah Silverman will play a game of 20 questions with you on Zoom.
Busy Philipps is offering a pottery class.
And the cast of Bob's Burgers will even sing you a song.
Because this is what happens nowadays, the whole thing is turning into a meme, with people making up their own celebrity experiences.
