A group of stars is to launch an online auction of hand-decorated messenger bags for charity.
Celebrities such as Chace Crawford, Debra Messing, Twilight’s Taylor Lautner, Samantha Harris, Sophia Bush, Tina Fey and many more have put their hearts into decorating the bags for Books For Kids, an organization that promotes literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool- aged children.
Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. Since its founding in 1986, the Books for Kids Foundation has provided children with more than 5 million books, created 56 libraries and provided literacy programs in many of these locations.
“As a big sister, I know how important it is to encourage reading,” said Kim Kardashian, who has also decorated a bag for the auction. “I was happy to decorate a bag to benefit Books for Kids knowing what a huge difference such a small effort can make.”
The auction launches on April 14 and can be accessed here.
