"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.
So many tears, so many tissues needed from last night's episode- so why not do some good while we're at it? … say.ly/uBA4jMV

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