Forty-seven years ago, Joanne Woodward and seven of the era's brightest stars were the first to place their hand prints in cement at Mann's Chinese Theatre Walk of Fame. Today, Mario Magro Kiss For A Cause Foundation gives the time honored tradition a new twist by collecting the kisses and signatures of today's hottest stars of film, television and music. "The concept has been a great success," Mario Magro notes. "We are helping children all around the world and creating collectible items that will be more valuable and famous than any memorabilia collection ever conceived.

"The kissed and signed crystal inserts are very appealing to collectors because they offer an intimate connection to the celebrity. There is nothing quite as sexy and compelling as owning a celebrity's kiss and autograph preserved behind glass. When you look at the kissed and signed insert, you can see the celebrity's actual lip prints. I can only imagine what a Marilyn Monroe or JFK kiss and signature would be worth today -- it would be priceless to the collector. I'm very proud of the celebrities who have lent their support. The collection is magnificent, but their contribution towards the cause of helping orphaned and abandoned children is immeasurable!" Magro says emphatically.

Each collectible item has been numbered and authenticated by designer Mario Magro, whose signature is sealed inside along with the celebrity's kiss and autograph. The kissed and signed crystal insert comes in a branded leather display case accompanied by a certificate of authenticity and certificate of photograph authenticity. Each collectable item includes an original Mario Magro Crystal Le Coop handbag.

The Mario Magro Kiss For A Cause celebrity auction will be hosted by eBay Giving Works, the dedicated program for charity listing on eBay. The event is managed on eBay by Auction Cause, a premier online auction management agency specializing in high profile design, strategy, and cause marketing for corporations and nonprofits worldwide.
