Lindsay Lohan and Altitude London have teamed up to raise money and support those affected by the earthquake in Haiti. The partnership started with a fundraising event on 16 February 2010
(watch the video here: http://tiny.cc/IBS1r) and now continues with an auction of superb prizes on ebay.
Mark Astarita, British Red Cross director of fundraising, said:
“A big thank you to Lindsay Lohan and Altitude London for raising so much money at the iRock4Haiti fundraiser and now arranging such fabulous ebay auction prizes. All the money raised will be used by the British Red Cross to fund work in Haiti. Red Cross staff and volunteers have been in Haiti since the earthquake struck and are committed to being there long term. There are many, many people in Haiti who still need help, so bid for one or more of these prizes today and help raise crucially needed funds.”
