More than 50 prominent celebrities and public figures are joining forces with CREATETHE GROUP, Inc. media agency to rebuild areas of New York City ravaged by Hurricane Sandy. The charitable platform RE/CREATE New York is a way for some of New York City’s most noteworthy — including Bergdorf Goodman, Anne Hathaway, Marc Jacobs, Kate Moss and Kanye West— to give back to the city they love through a series of online auctions on eBay benefiting the Hurricane Sandy relief efforts of New York Cares. In all, three consecutive ten day auction rounds featuring the unique items donated will take place this month on eBay.com.
One-of-a-kind items up for grabs include a complete collection of 16 Tom Ford Nail Lacquers presented in an elegant box and a pair of Rickie sunglasses; a custom Alexander Wang handbag–created and signed by the designer himself; and the actual breastplate worn by Julianne Moore for the upcoming film remake of Carrie (coming to a theater near you later this year) which is rigged with special effects and autographed by the actress herself. Check out all of the current auctions open now for bidding at the cause’s webpage.

To date, the campaign has raised more than $21,000 for Hurricane Sandy victims.
