Magic is Here! 

Once Upon A Fan
Standing Up To Cancer

We raised over $14,000 for the With Kids charity throughout 2012. This year we hope to raise money for Cancer Research UK.


We will soon be launching our new charity appeal and plan on arranging another massive auction to coincide with the show's return in the fall.

If any fans who are artists would like to donate artwork or if you own Once Upon A Time items that you would be willing to part with for a charity auction, please contact us at newsroom@onceuponafans.comLast year a high quality fan made portrait of Robert Carlyle raised nearly £1000 alone! Just by donating a piece of your work, you could make a huge difference!

Deadline for donations is September 3rd in order to give items time to arrive and be processed by us.


We are also reaching out to the cast and crew of Once Upon A Time to consider helping us with this effort so spread the word and stand up to cancer with us.

Why Stand Up To Cancer?

Cancer has invaded my life all through my life. It took my grandmother when I was 19, my father when I was 20 and so many other loved ones, leaving behind a family forever changed. Each and every one of us has or will have a tale to tell about cancer. Each and every one of us will be affected by it. 

But hope is on the horizon. Technology is evolving everyday. New treatments and therapies are offering real breakthroughs in the fight against cancer. We stand on the brink of finally striking back, improving the survival chances of millions of people around the world. 

Let's stand up together, united in a common goal, to eradicate cancer within our lifetime. 

This year, OUAF is standing up to cancer.

Gareth Hughes, OUAF Editor & Founder

We can now confirm that the auction will take place from September 23rd-29th to coincide with the return of the show for season three.
