Shred of Hope primarily raised funds through an online auction of celebrity-designed one-of-a-kind Nasty Pig Shredders™. All 29 shirts put up for auction sold. Shredders attracting the highest bids included Adam Lambert’s ($2525), Michael Stipe’s ($2125) and Joe.My.God blogger Joe Jervis’ ($1775).
A full listing of the celebrities who designed shirts for Shred of Hope 2013 can be found at www.shredofhope.com. The campaign raised additional funds at a star-studded launch party held at the Adel Rootstein Showroom in Chelsea, NYC. “It was amazing to be involved in the Shred of Hope and have our kids receive the support of so many generous and creative members of our community,” said Ali Forney Center founder and Executive Director Carl Siciliano. “I am very grateful to Nasty Pig for their commitment and kindness to us. In my mind they are “Wonderful Pig”.
I am so amazed that the JMG shirt brought in the third-most amount. Big kisses to all that put in bids for such a fun event for a fantastic cause.
