LONDON - Talk show host Tyra Banks and a number of top models will be donating their dresses to charity in order to raise money for electricity in Rwanda and Haiti.
“We have asked about 30 top models, including Tyra Banks, Eva Herzigova, Brooke Shields, Elle Macpherson and Christy Turlington to donate ‘one frickin dress’ they have worn on the red carpet,” contactmusic.com quoted fashion model Elletra Wiedemann, who is organising the collaboration between her OneFrickinDay charity and online auction site Charitybuzz for the new Model Behaviour initiative.
Wiedemann hopes the auction will help with the attempt to raise at least $100,000 to provide solar panels for clinics in Rwanda and Haiti, reports contactmusic.com.
She said: “These gorgeous dresses will be auctioned off on Charitybuzz and the money will go towards buying solar panels for clinics that currently have zero access or very limited access to electricity in Rwanda and Haiti.”
