It’s a great charity that I work with that help raises money for Breast Cancer [Awareness]” Later, twittering non-stop to her fans as her breast cast jumped thousands of dollars as she upped the auction with promises of a personal phone call and kiss for the winner, and matching tweets for dollars to her TilaArmy that she would donate up to $10,000 for people to tweet about the Keep A Breast Foundation and the auction. As the bidding rose this morning to $44,500 with 8 days left to bid. Tila wrote on her twitter “Wow! I just checked and now my boobies are at $44,500.00!! Incredible!!! I’m gonna cry of joy! xox”
