September is World Alzheimer’s Month, and a bunch of famous names have joined a giant celebrity charity auction to mark the occasion.
The Elephant Project is an organization to raise money and awareness for the Alzheimer's Association, which was started by David Niederhoffer after his grandfather passed away from Alzheimer’s disease. There is a phrase that says “elephants never forget,” and in the fight against Alzheimer’s disease, we are striving for those affected by the disease to “never forget.” David has worked hard to get well-known celebrities to pose with an elephant beanie baby and sign a special Elephant Project card, which are then auctioned off to raise money to fight Alzheimer’s disease.
Each auction package comes with an 8×10 picture of the celebrity and the elephant, a signed card from that celebrity, and an elephant beanie baby. Among the stars taking part are Justin Bieber, One Direction, Darren Criss, Chris Colfer, Lea Michele, Zooey Deschanel, Jensen Ackles, Jared Padalecki, Vanessa Hudgens, Tom Felton, Pauley Perrette, Rihanna, Kim Kardashian, Jimmy Fallon, Mark Ruffalo, Ian Somerhalder, Sofia Vergara, Jason Sudeikis, Shenae Grimes, AnnaLynne McCord, Zachary Quinto, Jesse Tyler Ferguson, Ann Curry and many more.
The auctions end on September 20, and can be accessed here.
