Celebrities auctioning off their clothes for charity

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.

Ellen supports a vegan America said...

The Humane Society if the United States and pro-vegan America CEO Wayne Pacelle have little to nothing to do with animal welfare. HSUS is only concerned with anti-farming legislation and suing anyone that goes against their agenda. It is a shame how they have fooled people for years with misleading fund raising campaigns. America is becoming aware of their true agenda and HSUS will not be enjoying tax free status much longer. Shame on you Ellen DeGeneres! I hope you know what you have gotten yourself into!
