As winter starts to wrap it’s icy fingers around the Northern Hemisphere, it’s time to start pulling your seasonal clothes out of the bottom of the drawers and closets. And if you want something a little different to go splashing through the puddles and snow this year, why not check out the celebrity boot sale currently on eBay.
Jay-Z, John Mayer, KT Tunstall, Amy Winehouse, Noel Gallagher, James Blunt, Katie Melua, The Arctic Monkeys, Kate Moss and a host of other stars decorated boots at this year’s Glastonbury Festival in the UK, and now the footwear will raise money for Water Aid, an organization that provides clean water, sanitation and hygiene education in Africa and other parts of the developing world.
“We are really excited about the Water Aid Celebrity Boot auction on eBay,” said Naomi Irving, corporate development manager at Water Aid. “We’re so grateful to all the celebrities involved who have signed a pair of Hunter for Water Aid wellies [boots], including KT Tunstall, The Fratellis and Noel Gallagher.”
The auction runs until November 20, and can be accessed through eBay.
KT Tunstall is also currently involved in a campaign to help ensure homelessness is eradicated in Scotland by 2012.
The “Hometime” campaign has been launched by Shelter Scotland to ensure homeless targets are met and asks people to name which song reminds them of home. The list of songs will then be handed over to politicians later this month.
More information about the campaign can be found at the Shelter Scotland website.
