Julianne Moore, Jenna Elfman and Gillian Anderson are just three celebrities who donated designer handbags to the We Promise Foundation, helping dreams come true for children with severe illnesses.

The charity held its 2nd Annual Red Carpet Celebrity Handbag eBay Auction on July 3 through July 10. All bags and accessories began at 99 cents, with 100 percent of the proceeds benefitting the foundation.

Bidders could choose from 14 exclusive items including Moore’s Hogan Suede & Shearling Messenger Bag, Melissa Rycroft’s Simply Vera Hobo or a Burberry Nova Check Suede Tote.

“The chance to own these celebrity-owned and designer-donated items while also making a life-changing difference for children fighting for their lives is a rare opportunity,” John Blum, chairman of the foundation said. “We hope to raise a great deal of money for these young heroes to help make their dreams come true!”

    I am tempted to bid on something. I’m glad 100% of the proceeds is going to such a worthy cause.
