Celeb pals Brad Pitt, Ben Affleck and Laurence Fishburne have all donated sleek, custom-made motorcycles to an online charity auction aimed to benefit a planned memorial in Washington for Martin Luther King Jr.
Morgan Freeman, the person who organized the auction benefiting the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. National Memorial Foundation, commented "People are always quoting (Rev. King). He's remembered as our prince of peace, of civil rights. We owe him something major that will keep him and his memory alive."
There are four bikes, two from Affleck and one each from Pitt and Fishburne, all of which up for bid on the Charity Folks Web site through Friday so Freeman announced while revealing his hope that "people will overbid" for the worthy cause.
In addition to the bikes, there are also other celebrity items on offer, which among others include wedge-heeled shoes designed and signed by Jennifer Lopez and a DVD of "Catch Me If You Can" signed by Tom Hanks.
