Shop With A Cause: Star Purse Auction for Breast Cancer

09/14/2006 at 02:00 PM ET

Have you ever looked at a photo of your favorite star and wished you could have their purse? Well, now you can. Seventeen and Ebay have teamed up to auction off purses from stars such as Sarah Jessica Parker, Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen, Reese Witherspoon and Alicia Keys to benefit the The Susan G. Komen Foundation, The American Cancer Society, and The American Breast Cancer Foundation (all proceeds will go directly to the charities). Amping up the star wattage, the auction has been co-curated by Hilary Duff, who generously donated her gorgeous red Kooba (left). Bidding starts at $100 and begins today — good luck!!

What a great idea especially if your big on supporting breast cancer like me, Supporting breats cancer along with getting a celebrity purse that’s awesome. Maybe to some people who need everything to be new this mite be a problem. Thumbs up to you Hilary and whoever else is in it along with you.
