These days Oxfam seems to be popping up just about everywhere. Earlier this week I spoke with Minnie Driver about her steadfast loyalty to the British charity, but it’s not just the Minniemeister who’s all up in Oxfam’s grill.
Oxfam has just teamed up with eBay to help raise money for their world wide poverty relief effort by offering four charity auctions (each lasting 10 days) to get some one on one time with a few famous Oxfam Ambassadors. First up is chance to win a date with Colin Firth and attend a screening of his new movie, Mamma Mia.
The Colin Firth package (not to be confused with Colin Firth’s package) will include two VIP tickets to the world premiere of Mamma Mia, an invite to the after party, and of course chauffer service for the evening. Other upcoming celebrity auctions include: tickets to the New York premiere of The Sex and the City Movie and a chance to be Scarlett Johansson’s guest at the June premiere of He’s Just Not That Into You.
So take out a loan, borrow from your parents, or just rob a bank, and hightail it over to eBay to win a date with Colin and help out a super great charity. Oh and if you loose the Colin Firth bid, I highly recommend coming over to my auction where I too will be offering one lucky lady a date with me to attend: Parrish Sits On His Couch With Potato Chips and Cheap Wine While Watching Reruns of VH1′s Best Week Ever. Good luck bidders!
