"Glee" fans still reeling from the big "Break-Up" episode can cry their eyes out into some very expensive tissues. Series star Darren Criss has started a charity auction to: 1. Help "Glee" fans get over the split status of their favorite TV couple and 2. Benefit several organizations.

After the October 4 episode, Criss took to Twitter to announce the auction.

On Charitybuzz, fans can bid on tissue boxes signed by Lea Michele and Cory Monteith, Heather Morris and Naya Rivera and Criss and Chris Colfer.

The box signed by Michele and Monteith -- Finnchel to fans -- is currently priced at $2,000. Colfer and Criss' box -- Klaine -- is at $1,850 and the box signed by Rivera and Morris -- Britana -- is at $1,550. The boxes will be personalized for the winners.

According to EW, some proceeds will go to the Trevor Project and the Ovarian Cancer Research Fund.

Prior to "The Break-Up," Criss wrote a lengthy thank you note to his fans on Facebook.

"Tonight is the premiere of the dreaded break-up episode," he wrote on October 4. "For many 'Glee' fans, I imagine there will more than reason to be sad. But cheer up, think of it this way: much of your support has allowed me to be on this show long enough to reach a breakup in the first place; it has created a relationship that people cared enough about whereby it was even worth writing an episode about its potential end. I never thought I would get to be around long enough for something like that. And I really have you, the fans to thank for it. It’s something to be proud of."

The charity auction ends Friday, October 12.

"Glee" airs on Thursdays at 9 p.m. ET on Fox.
