If you’re a Walking Dead fan, Chandler Riggs and his dad are offering you an opportunity to own an 8×10 autographed and personalized photo — an iconic image of Chandler, as Carl Grimes, sitting on a roof and eating pudding out of a can. The sales also benefit the Wounded Warrior Project.
You’re probably familiar with Carl. Even if you don’t watch Walking Dead, you can hardly have missed the memes. The first few seasons, they centered around “Stay in the house, Carl!” and similar lines, with fans declaring that most of the problems on the show arose when Chandler Riggs’ character wouldn’t stay where he was supposed to. Since then, though, Carl has begun to impress fans, stepping up and taking on responsibility. Riggs’ character is growing, and so is Riggs’ fan following.
Now Riggs’ dad is on eBay, offering that fandom a unique opportunity.
“Chandler’s dad here and I want to offer everyone in the USA an opportunity to own an autographed & personalized ‘Pudding’ photo. We have limited quantities of these and a portion of the proceeds will benefit the Wounded Warrior Project. Let me know how you would like it signed, ‘to Bob, Stay Human Chandler Riggs’ for example, — I’ll have Chandler sign it & we’ll ship it ASAP! Once you receive your autographed photo, please let us know of any problems with your order and we will fix. Sorry, available for USA only at this time.”
Looks like Chandler Riggs is joining the rest of the Walking Dead cast in activism — 10 percent of the proceeds for the photos goes to the Wounded Warrior Project.
The young Walking Dead star tweeted the link himself Sunday evening.

The Wounded Warrior Project helps thousands of returning soldiers adjust, providing services for their families, physical rehabilitation programs and adaptive sports, higher education programs, and more. It’s all designed to help returning warriors feel less like a fish out of water and more like a returning hero. They are always seeking donations and volunteers. If you want to help, aside from through Riggs’ fundraiser, you can donate here, and also find out more about the specific programs you’ll be supporting.
As for the Walking Dead star’s autographed photos, they’re going quickly, but as of this publication, there are more than 10 left in the auction. Chandler Riggs’ autographed photos are going for $65 apiece — far less than the last official Walking Dead memorabilia we saw on eBay!
