Celebrity hair-stylist Ken Paves might just be the hardest-working man in Hollywood. After raising $2.2 million towards research for Epidermolysis Bullosa last week at an event with Courteney Cox, Jennifer Aniston, and Eva Longoria Parker, Paves decided to keep on giving, and this week has launched Ken Paves’s Big Give on eBay to raise money for the cause that he supports on behalf of his friend Rachel Nasuti who suffers from the skin condition that leaves skin as thin and breakable as tissue-paper. Paves says of his famous clients, “I don’t even have to ask anymore. I just call and say, ‘I’m trying to raise money for—’ and they go, ‘Kenny, what do you need?'” Items include a Scrubs set visit with Donald Faison, a meet and greet with Paves client and pal Celine Dion (as well as concert tickets), and a guitar autographed by the Eagles. “I’m grateful that everyone in my life is very aware of their blessings, and more than willing to share,” says Paves.

The party Ken threw at Eva Longoria’s new restaurant, Beso was AMAZING!! I’ve never seen so many famous and charitable people in one room before. My friends and colleagues at Symantec/Norton were THRILLED to be a part of Ken’s Big Give effort. Good luck with the Ebay auction – so many fabulous items to choose from.

As I, my sister, brother and daughter, suffer from this disorder, I appreciate so much that you have mentioned it quite a few time. I would, however, ask that you spell it correctly as it may be difficult for people to be able to find the national website. It is spelled “Epidermolysis Bullosa” and the national website is Thanks so much for helping with the awareness.

I am very happy to see so much mentioned in your magazine about EB. I, my 2 siblings and my daughter suffer from it. Please make sure you spell it correctly, however. It is epidermolysis bullosa.
