Starlight Children's Foundation has teamed up with Alexander Miles, eBay and The Langham, London to organize a Celebrity Lampshade Auction to raise funds for the charity.
A number of high profile names took part in the design project, including Ricky Gervais, Jonathan Ross, Bill Nighy, Stereophonics, William Tempest, Daisy de Villeneuve, Sam-Taylor Wood and Linford Christie.
The Auction will go live at the Champagne Launch Party on the 7th February 2012 at The Langham, London. The Lampshades and stunning floor lamps designed by Alexander Miles will be on display in the Palm Court (re-named Lamp Court) for a period of two weeks. The Auction will be featured globally on eBay from 7th February 2012 to 21st February 2012 with all monies raised going directly to Starlight Children’s Foundation in the UK.
Starlight grants wishes to seriously and terminally ill children, and entertains over half a million children every year in hospitals and hospices across the UK. A Starlight wish helps to distract a child from the pain, fear and isolation they can often feel as a result of their illness. At a time when there is little to look forward to, Starlight aims to restore the magic and fun of childhood – creating happy memories for the whole family to share and cherish. Help Starlight bring a little light into these children’s lives by supporting the auction or by making an online donation at www.starlight.org.uk.
LookToTheStars.org will bring you more information when the auction launches.
