Earlier this month, actor Ewan McGregor auctioned off his favorite motorcycle to raise money for UNICEF.

Look To The Stars can now reveal that the bike was sold for US$44,000 – with the money to go to the organization’s work helping children around the world cope with war, famine, poverty, and natural disasters.

“Unicef would like to thank Ewan McGregor for auctioning his much-loved motorbike, which has raised the sizeable sum of £22,100 for our work with children globally,” said UNICEF’s Fiona Hesselden. “This money will support Unicef’s Children’s Emergency Fund, helping children such as those in Zimbabwe or the Democratic Republic of Congo who so urgently need our help at this time.”

McGregor bought the rare white Moto Guzzi California Vintage cycle directly from the factory in Italy and rode it back to London. He then used it regularly and it became one of his most treasured possessions.

Earlier this year, McGregor joined Charley Boorman in a marathon motorcycle ride in Africa. The pair visited charity projects around the continent and raised over $621,000 at a charity dinner when they returned.
