Two postage stamps featuring signed photos of actress and model Elizabeth Hurley have been sold by auction on eBay for over £1,550 (US$2,250).
Both stamps featured pictures of Hurley’s son Damien and are part of a limited-edition Mothers’ Day themed “Smilers” range which also includes photos donated by model Jasmine Guinness. Money from the stamps will go to Women's Aid, a UK-based domestic violence charity that helps up to 250,000 women and children every year.
The campaign – which has already raised over £5000 – aims to raise funds to assist the organization’s 500 local services throughout the UK that work to end domestic violence against women and children. The charity will use the money to help empower women who have been affected by domestic violence, meet the needs of children affected by domestic violence, provide services run by women which are based on listening to survivors, challenge the disadvantages which result from domestic violence, support and reflect diversity and promote equality of opportunity, and promote cohesive inter-agency responses to domestic violence and develop partnership.
