Kim Kardashian Auctions Clothes for Charity

Posted by Andru Edwards Categories: Television, Clothing, Style, Charity,

Kanye West and Kim KardashianKim Kardashian is selling her clothes on eBay to help the victims of Typhoon Haiyan.

The Keeping up with the Kardashians star has put a selection of items on the auction site in order to raise money for the non-profit organization International Medical Corps to help victims of the devastating cyclone, which has killed more than 4,000 people in the Philippines this month.

However, instead of donating the entire proceeds, she's only giving 10 per cent of the sales to the charity.

The 33-year-old beauty - who has a reported net worth of $65 million - took to her Twitter page yesterday to share the link to her personal website. "Hi guys, this is a very special auction because a portion of the proceeds of my eBay auction are going to International Medical Corps, a nonprofit organization that provides critical health services on remote islands where families are struggling to access medical care and basic resources like food, clean drinking water and vital medications. The proceeds will go directly to the communities they're serving in the Philippines and will help typhoon survivors get access to medical care and ultimately save lives. My prayers and thoughts are with those affected by the typhoon. Check out my eBay auction here and support those who need our help in the Philippines. Xo. [sic]," she wrote.

Apple profits conceptualized

Apple Profit Conceptualize

Here's a clear example of The Street missing the woods for the trees when it comes to valuing Apple stock while giving companies like Amazon high volume and low profit yield a free pass.

Notable Highlights between Oct 2011 - Sept 2012:

  • Apple record breaking profit of 41.7 billion.
  • Apple revenue is 156.5 billion.
  • Combined profit of Facebook, Google Microsoft, Yahoo! and Amazon is 34 million.
  • Combined profit of the PC industry of HP, Lenovo, Acer, IBM ASUS, Dell, and Intel is 19.3 billion.

One could extrapolate that the major Android OEMS combined makes less profit than Apple makes from the iPhone alone.

Joe Shuster Superman Original Art Auction!

Joe Shuster's SupermanIf you’ve ever dreamed about owning an original piece of Superman artwork by co-creator and artist Joe Shuster, now’s your chance.

Longtime original art dealer Larry Shell is offering a rare piece of American comics history this week in a fast-paced auction.

It’s a full color Joe Shuster recreation to the cover of Action Comics #16 (the original issue went on sale in 1938). According to Shell, this recreation was drawn in 1983 and “is one of only a very few cover recreations that Shuster did and is 100% his work.” It was originally owned by Wendy and Richard Pini (Elfquest).

The original measures a large 15” x 20” in size and is rendered in lead and colored pencils, which gives the image the soft quality of pastels.

You can see a photo of Joe Shuster with the original piece here.
