Celebs donate auction items for Oxfam

Oxfam is hosting a celebrity and public auction to help raise funds for people suffering in Chad and the Darfur region of Sudan. Sienna Miller has donated a pair of shoes, Elton John has parted with a tailor-made Versace suit, and Helen Mirren has donated her script from her Oscar-winning performance in The Queen. "Try to imagine living in a tiny shelter made out of straw, dry branches and plastic sheeting with the sun baking down on you at 45 degrees. For most of us that's beyond imagination," John said of his support of the event. "I'm delighted to donate this suit that was custom-made by Donatella Versace for me to wear to the white tie and tiara ball in 2000 and hope it raises lots of cash for the people of Darfur who have already suffered so much.
