Coming up soon on Starship's Bids for Kids Charity Auction is a autographed matchbox with a living plant named Chuy!

Lucy has autographed the matchbox inside the box while Chuy sits happily on the cover. The matchbox was originally donated by Lucy to Amnesty International auction and won by AUSXIP. The matchbox has been donated to Starship for the Bids for Kids auction to raise some money for the kids.

The plant is a grey tillandsia (follow the link to find out more about the amazing plant) and it seems, from Lucy's message below, that it doesn't require alot to keep it alive and healthy:


Looks like it needs to be spritzed with water. Needs a drink but they draw it from the air so just a spritz will perk him up. His name is Chuy. (Pronounced "Chewy")
