The auction raised a total of $555,000. The money will go to three charities that support the Asian American community, transgender people and people who work in laundromats.
Usually there is not much interest
Jason Kisvarday, who is responsible for designing many of the pieces, told the American newspaper that he was amazed by the proceeds from the auction. “Normally there isn’t much interest in these things once the movie comes out.” Who bought the items is not disclosed.
Since the release of Everything Everywhere Every Time, the movie has grossed over $100 million.
