Christie’s star-studded “Bid to Save the Earth” Green Auction raised millions in 2010 for various environmental charities. Today, the art powerhouse pulled back the curtain on round two; announcing a 2011 Green Auction with even more celebrity punch and “one-in-a-lifetime” opportunities.

Like last year, Christie’s is leaning on charitybuzz for the online portion of the auction – which launches today and lasts through April 7th. On March 29th, an exclusive and luxurious live benefit will take place in New York City hosted by comedian Seth Meyers. According to the release, the carbon-neutral event will bring together “top art collectors, philanthropists, financiers and environmentalists with the fashion community.” The evening will also feature a sustainable fashion show produced by Runway to Green; which brings together top designers to help raise awareness about the environment. Participating firms include Gucci, Balenciaga, Prada, Burberry, Yves Saint Laurent, and many more.

This one night event brought in almost $2.5M last year.

But back to the online auction. Starting right now, you can bid on “meet and greets” with celebs Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber (if his hair went for $40K, how much can we expect the whole package to go for?) — as well as day-long excursions with notables like President Bill Clinton, Harrison Ford, Robert F. Kennedy, and many more. Personally, I would love to throw my entire line of credit at the 10 Day trip to Tanzania and the stunning beaches of Mozambique. But alas, I need to eat.

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
