Most celebrities have big hearts but little time. From start to finish we handle all the details so they don’t have to.

This innovative online charity auction makes its debut on November 1, 2012, from Honolulu, Hawaii. Celebrity Auction maximizes celebrities’ charitable donations of clothing and other items by putting them up for bid on the auction site. Now is the time to mine closet treasures and make them count!
When Celebrities, such as TV and movie stars, musicians and athletes, donate items of value, Celebrity Auction arranges for a free pick-up at any location. “All we need from the celebrity is a signed Authenticity Verification Form,” explains Nick Batchelor, founder of Celebrity Auction. “We will post photos and a description of each article on our Web site—then let the bidding begin! And the best part? Eighty-percent of the gross proceeds go to the celebrity’s special charity.”
“Most celebrities have big hearts but little time,” says co-founder, DeAnna Batchelor. “From start to finish we handle all the details so they don’t have to.” Celebrity Auction can implement a reserve, minimum price for high-value items. “What will impress celebrities and their charities is the way their items for bid will be showcased,” says Nick Batchelor. “We just want celebrities to know we are here to help them put the spotlight on what means the most to them in a unique, dynamic way.”
When the highest bidder wins, Celebrity Auction ships the item directly to them. The proceeds are sent to the benefiting charity, along with a donation letter in behalf of the celebrity. A letter of thanks is sent to the celebrity for their kindness in making the charitable donation, and appropriate tax documentation is included. Everyone is a winner.
Celebrity Auction teams up with nonprofits, foundations, and celebrities throughout the world to assist them in their altruistic endeavors to help others in need. From donated “experiences,” like meet-and-greets and backstage passes to auctioning memorabilia and collectibles, Celebrity Auction lives up to its tagline: “Meet your Hero. Be a Hero.”
