A-ROD is no longer a “social media free agent” as the NY Daily News put it, with the announcement that Yankee superstar Alex Rodriguez is now on Facebook! He’s definitely showing his fan appreciation, and even used his first post to tell everyone about the great time he had with a Charitybuzz bidder at spring training recently! As resident New Yorkers we are hyped to see those pinstripes dominating on the field, and on the social mediawaves! Go Yanks!
Charitybuzz launched the Christie’s Bid To Save The Earth auction today, with some amazing fashion-friendly items up for grabs to benefit a truly amazing cause! Check out this article from Style.com, below!
Last year, Christie’s brought in $1.36 million with its annual Bid to Save the Earth live auction in New York, where attendees bid on airplane rides with Harrison Ford and a day with Bill Clinton. The auction house has equally exciting items and experiences lined up for this year’s April 11 gala (Anna and Graydon Carter, Salma Hayek and François-Henri Pinault, and Susan and David Rockefeller are among the co-chairs), but ahead of the big event, Christie’s launches an online auction this morning, powered by Charitybuzz. Tea with model Elettra Wiedemann, a limited-edition reissued vintage Fendi Baguette handbag, and an afternoon of shopping with Simon Doonan (along with $2,500 to spend at Barneys) are all in the loot, but Style.com has its eye on the six bespoke Stella McCartney bags going up for auction today. McCartney, a dedicated green activist, teamed up with five artists to create one-of-a-kind bags for the auction. Style.com has the exclusive first look at the bags, featuring art by the likes of Mr. Brainwash (pictured, above), Bunta Inoue (pictured, below), and Peter Tunney, here. The bags will be for sale this morning through April 19 on Charitybuzz.com.
New Year, New Girl!
There’s a new girl in town, and she’s taking the sitcom world by storm in her own adorkable way! Jess may not always know exactly what she wants, but she certainly takes her independence by the reigns, and we would all be well-served to take a page out of her book and aim to live life on our own terms this year!
Jess and the gang may be a quirky bunch, but they sure know how to keep things exciting, and we can’t get enough! Always wished you could sing a little duet with Jess? Or maybe dressing up as Sexy Santa with Schmidt is your thing. Either way, you can make friends with Zooey, Jake, Hannah, Lamorne and Max when you meet the cast of New Girl in LA for charity!
