The issue of genocide in Africa is another important cause many celebrities are championing, and Oxfam is getting a lot of support from stars as well for the work they do. The group is currently holding a charity auction to raise funds for their work in the region and a lot of stars pitched in by giving away items to be auctioned off.
“Among the items on offer are pop star Elton John‘s tailor-made Donatella Versace suit, a script of hit film The Queen signed by Oscar-winning actress Helen Mirren, Coldplay frontman Chris Martin‘s Dolce and Gabbana jacket, and gold-coloured designer shoes signed by actress Sienna Miller.” Corrine Bailey Rae‘s dress in her “Put Your Records On” music video is also up for grabs. Oxfam’s supporters and awareness of this issue appear to be growing. I wonder how many celebrities will be heading to Africa to witness the situation first-hand?
