eBay Giving Works is currently holding a charitable auction benefitting the charity MaxLove Project. The featured auction is the “Suit of the Loom,” and the team at Jimmy Kimmel Live ! will donate 100% of the proceeds to the cause.
Comedian and television host, Jimmy Kimmel, started his own late-night talk show in 2003 called Jimmy Kimmel Live! The show airs on ABC and often features spoofs and comedic performances from Kimmel himself and his celebrity guests. The popular program often showcases world issues with a light-hearted tone, such as having children discuss and debate them.
Kimmel has also been known to support many charitable causes, including disaster relief and children with special needs. In partnering with the MaxLove Project through eBay Giving Works Kimmel’s eBay auction will generate a large charitable donation to help families fighting childhood cancer.
The MaxLove Project is a nonprofit organization that aids families dealing with life-threatening conditions and diseases in children. The project works to unite families and provide support wherever possible, including providing research and educational resources.
The item up for auction is Kimmel’s “Suit of the Loom,” a wearable collage of children’s rubber band loom creations from all over America. Children were encouraged to send in their creations, and Kimmel’s wardrobe department wove the small crafts into an adult-sized suit complete with a jacket, pants and necktie, which Kimmel then wore on his show. This garment is truly one-of-a-kind and comes with a letter of authenticity signed by Kimmel.
Max Wilford from Tustin, CA, champion of the MaxLove Project and super hero fan, appeared on Kimmel’s show to stand next to Kimmel and put on a matching loom cape. Max also announced his plans to complete a record-breaking loom chain that would be “about 100 miles long.”
100 percent of the auction proceeds will benefit the MaxLove Project. You can bid on the “Suit of the Loom” or donate directly on the MaxLove Project charity auction page. eBay members can also buy and sell items in support of the cause, and sales will help children just like Max.”
