Celeb Clothes Were On Sale For Charity

Celebrities have helped in raising thousands of dollars for charity by donating their designer cast-offs to a garage sale of a departmental store. The sale took place in London on November 15 for the Mothers 4 Children charity.

Stars like Gwyneth Paltrow, Elizabeth Hurley and Dame Shirley Bassey cleared out their wardrobes for 'The Really Really Great Garage Sale'.

A pair of Bassey's shoes sold for 100 pounds, while Paltrow and Hurley's unwanted clothes also helped raise a good amount.

Funnyman David Walliams, British singer Louise Redknapp and TV presenter Denise Van Outen were among the stars manning the stalls, each accumulating more than 5,000 pounds in profit.

Though the celebrities were likely to wear some of their clothes, the thought that these would help a lot of children in difficult times made them donate generously.
