By: eBay Inc. Staff
Anne Hathaway, Marc Jacobs, and Kanye West are just some of the celebrities who have donated one-of-a-kind items to RE/CREATE New York’s new online charity auction for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.
The auction, which begins today on eBay.com, features a host of exclusive items including a pair of Nike Air Yeezy II Sneakers signed by West, a signed (and kissed) book by model Kate Moss, and an autographed breast plate worn by the actress Julianne Moore during the making of the upcoming horror film remake “Carrie.”
In total, over 50 items supplied by prominent entertainers, designers and writers will be auctioned off online over the course of three rounds. (For fun, participants have also put together a personalized playlist of their favorite tunes, which are featured alongside their auction lots.)
According to event organizers RE/CREATE New York, the new charitable platform of strategic agency CREATETHE GROUP, Inc., 100 percent of the proceeds will benefit the Sandy relief efforts of volunteer organization New York Cares.
“We are touched by the enthusiasm of our friends to collaborate for the benefit of a city we hold close to our hearts,” said CREATETHE GROUP Chief Executive James Gardner. “Building and powering global digital businesses is at our core, and we’re honored to use this skill set to support New York Cares and the people who remain affected by this natural disaster.”
In addition to eBay, other RE/CREATE New York partners include Spotify and Rackspace.
