An online platform where celebrities are raising funds for their preferred charities by donating pre-owned items to be auctioned online, announced today a new online celebrity auction that will go live on Wednesday, February 15th at 7.00am PT/10.00 ET over at Startuch.com. The auction will showcase exclusive memorabilia from influential pop culture artists like Paris Hilton, Gene Simmons, and J Sutta of The Pussycat Dolls. Startuch accepts a wide-range of items from celebrities including clothing, electronics, children’s items, music instruments, jewelry, art, signed or unsigned personal memorabilia, and much more. All of which will be auctioned off online, with proceeds going back to the celebrity’s charity of choice.
Hilton will be donating to Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles and Starlight Children’s Foundation, Gene Simmons will be donating to Mending Kids, and J Sutta will be donating to A League of Extraordinary Mutts. Speaking about his decision to donate and auction items at Startuch.com, Gene Simmons said:
“All around the globe there’s children in need of urgent life-changing medical care and I believe in doing what I can to help. It’s great to see companies like Startuch.com offering a new way for people like myself to help our charities like Mendingkids.org, I hope others will also donate items and use this service to raise more money for their important causes” said Gene Simmons.
J Sutta also added, “Through auctioning these items on Startuch.com, I want to give something back to the fans and most importantly help raise more funds for dogs looking for a loving home at the League of Extraordinary Mutts.”
Paris Hilton said, “I’m always looking for ways to help charities and good causes and when I heard about Startuch.com, I was immediately onboard to support their online auction to raise funds for charity. Through my donations I will support two charities that are important to me, Children’s Hospital in Los Angeles and The Starlight Children’s Foundation, both are wonderful causes that I’ve supported for many years. I encourage you to go online and place a bid and help support these good causes.”
Speaking about the new auction items and donations Startuch.com co-founder Evgenia Lorcy: “It’s been our mission from the very beginning to always help those in need and I know there are so many celebrities and public figures who are always looking for more ways to give back. Startuch provides a simple and easy way for them to give back with very little required from them, except to donate some of their personal and performance items. We are extremely thankful to Gene, Paris and J Sutta for their wonderful participation and contribution to their causes, we know there will be many fans who will be excited about these exclusive items and we’re thrilled that they see the benefit and ease of working with us.”
