Summer Glau and her fellow Firefly cast members Gina Torres, Jewel Staite and Adam Baldwin posed with a teddy bear, in particular at this year Philadelphia Comic Con, to support Project Teddy Bear (check out the photos below). Project Teddy Bear is run by Lisa Spodack as a way to raise money for The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer.
The Avon Walk for Breast Cancer is a national series of 39-mile weekend fundraising events launched in 2003 by the Avon Foundation, a public charity for breast cancer screening, diagnosis, treatment, support and prevention.
Celebrities pose with a teddy bear which has a tag signed by the celeb. Photo and bear will be auctioned off at ebay to raise money for the Avon Foundation. Here are the lovely photos with the Firefly cast, including one of Summer Glau :

Adam Baldwin supports Project Teddy Bear
The auction package for each celeb includes a picture of her holding the bear and a bear with a tag signed by her. The last time Summer Glau’s package was auctioned off, Summer ended up raising the most money ever in a single Project Teddy Bear auction with a whooping $2007.64 final bid.
Lisa Spodack will launch this year auction in October, the breast cancer awareness month. Of course we will keep you updated!
UPDATE: Summer's bear was sold for $255
