Ellen DeGeneres is planning to auction off her own clothes for charity.
The 51-year-old star announced the plan on her talk show yesterday explaining the proceeds of sales would be donated to The Humane Society, which looks after needy animals.
Ellen said: "Today, we're starting something brand new. It's called, 'Whatcha Sellin' Ellen?' I'll be auctioning off my clothes and some of my guests' clothes on eBay to raise money for The
Humane Society of the United States. Every week there will be 25 items up for auction. Some things I only wore once. Some twice. And some I slept in. But they're clean… ish!" Read More
So Ellen is going to auction off her clothes for HSUS because they look after needy animals. Even Ellen isn’t aware of what the HSUS does. I hope someday she finds out that only 4% of what she donates to them will actually go to those animals in need.
