Beyonce Knowles donates a pair of gold shoes from her tour, while Thandie Newton gives a jacket she wore in movie '2012'.
Beyonce Knowles and Thandie Newton have raided their closets to donate items to a Haiti charity auction. The "Crazy In Love" hitmaker has donated a pair of gold shoes from her "I Am... Sasha Fierce" world tour, while Newton has offered up signed a jacket she wore in last year's movie "2012 (2009)".
Other lots include signed DVDs from "The Wire" star Idris Elba and tickets to the semi-final of Simon Cowell's hit reality TV show "Britain's Got Talent". All proceeds from the eBay auction will go to Britain's Disasters Emergency Committee to help fund rescue work in Haiti, which was hit by a massive earthquake in January this year.
More and more benefit events to help Haitian relief effort have been held this year. Next month, a concert dubbed "Virginia Stand Up! A Call to Action" will be held at Commonwealth University's Siegel Center on date 15. It will features Chris Brown, Keri Hilson, Trey Songz, T-Pain, Ryan Leslie, Mario and Juelz Santana.
