This is awesome!
Just a couple of weeks ago, I wrote about CharityBuzz.com auctioning off a week internship at Vogue, attendance at a New York Fashion Week (NYFW) show and meeting Anna Wintour. The proceeds will benefit the The Robert F. Kennedy Center for Justice and Human Rights.
Well, the auction ended yesterday and it went for $42,500! It’s just great.
It seems that Anna now has a thing for auctions. She has another auction on CharityBuzz.com. This time the beneficiary will be The Art of Elysium. The Art of Elysium “encourages working actors, artists and musicians to voluntarily dedicate their time and talent to children who are battling serious medical conditions.” It’s a great cause and one can only hope that Anna’s éclat can again raise a big pot of cash for this charity.
The winner will get a meet-and-greet along with tickets to a NYFW show, a Christian Louboutin gift certificate and bags from Proenza Schouler and Alexander Wang.
The current bid is $5,000. However, like before, we’ve got a long time before the auction ends. You’ve got until Thursday, May 13th at 12pm to make a bid.
Even if these auctions are too steep for your wallet, I hope that Anna’s auctions will inspire her many fans to contribute to these or other good causes.
