In the fast changing cyber world, a tree-year old tradition is bound to attain something of a venerable aura. So it is with the 2011 bidorbuy Celebrities for Charities auctions, the third such event to be staged on the site at about this time of the year. (Read more about the 2009 and the 2010 celebrity auctions.)
Some of the celebrities who are generously donating their time this year are well known to bidorbuyers, for they have participated in the Celebrities for Charities in the past too:
After their release they have dedicated their lives to helping others. They have founded the Callie and Monique Charity Trust and Matla A Bana – A voice against child abuse- which helps more than 4000 children every year. Callie and Monique are also popular international public speakers. Their message is that of hope, of always staying positive.
This is Callie’s and Monique’s third appearance on Celebrities for Charities auction, and all the proceeds are for Matla a Bana.
The mere mention of her name may revoke images of glamorous life that many of us would like to lead, but Edith Venter is much more than a sophisticated socialite.
She is also an astute business woman and tireless in her charity work. As for the woman herself – Edith has been called inspiring, frank, warm and funny, as you will have the chance to find out if you “win” her on this auction!
This is Edith Venter’s third appearance on Celebrities for Charities auction. She is championing two charities, Matla a Bana and Papillon Foundation.
This is Barry Hilton’s second appearance on Celebrities for Charities auction, and all the proceeds are for the Potchefstroom Lions Club, a NPO that works in the community of Potchefstroom on various projects.
The bidorbuy Celebrities for Charities auctions open on Monday 18 July and last until 28 July. The participating charities will be grateful for any bid you can afford to make!
