Shop Chic Relief and Save Lives
Together with numerous notable stylists, Chic Relief is auctioning off celebrity red carpet looks and designer clothing to benefit COVID-19 relief causes. Through this special eBay fashion event, Stewart is able to expand the reach of Chic Relief’s efforts with 100% of proceeds directly benefiting Direct Relief, who is coordinating with public health authorities, nonprofit organizations, and businesses in the U.S. and globally to provide PPE and essential medical items to health workers on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Additionally, to further support COVID-19 relief efforts, now through May 31, eBay is matching dollar for dollar, up to $1 million, when shoppers donate to Direct Relief, Feeding America and The Opportunity Fund via eBay.
