Stars give their jeans to help refugees
Giving the shirt off your back used to be the ultimate sign of generosity. But Hollywood stars Sharon Stone, Benicio Del Toro and Emma Watson have gone one better by donating their trousers for a new charity drive called Jeans for Refugees.
Singers Elton John and Lily Allen have also handed over their denims to the American artist and designer Johny Dar to transform and then auction them off for the International Committee for Refugees (ICR).
Within hours, on the online auction site Catawiki, someone had already bid 5,000 euros ($5,500) for Stone’s demins.
“The world refugee crisis has had an impact on everyone,” said the designer Dar, adding that the online auction would close in October.
The ICR was founded by scientist Albert Einstein in 1933 to help people escaping the Nazi regime in Germany.
