Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler is among the celebrities recreated as unique, one-of-a kind Cabbage Patch Kids that will be auctioned on eBay, starting today, with proceeds benefiting Children's Action Network (CAN), a national adoption awareness organization dedicated to finding homes for children in the U.S. who are in foster care.
The exclusive Celebrity 'Kids were created to be auctioned by leading U.S. toy company JAKKS Pacific, Inc. to raise awareness and much-needed funds for this notable charity and to celebrate the rich tradition of the lovable and adoptable Cabbage Patch Kids during the National Adoption Month of November.
Launching today on eBay Giving Works through November 17, fans of Steven Tyler, Al Roker, Katherine Heigl, Kristin Chenoweth and Raven-Symoné can go to cpkauctionforcharity.com to bid on the one-of-a-kind Celebrity Cabbage Patch Kids created in the likeness of these famous singers, actors and TV personalities. Auction Cause, an online cause marketing agency, will manage the auction.
Distinctive features of the Celebrity 'Kids include Steven Tyler's rocker-inspired outfit and mic stand; Al Roker's signature glasses and tailored suit; Katherine Heigl's favorite red carpet couture; Kristin Chenoweth's royal blue ball gown; and Raven-Symoné's trendy romper and blinged out platform heels. JAKKS Pacific worked closely with each celebrity to make sure their one-of-a-kind 'Kid embodied their individual look and personality. Each Celebrity 'Kid, will also come with its own autographed birth certificate.
All proceeds of the Steven Tyler, Al Roker and Raven-Symoné Celebrity 'Kids will benefit CAN, while Kristin Chenoweth and Katherine Heigl are donating 50 percent of funds to CAN and the other 50 percent to Maddie's Corner and the Jason Debus HeiglFoundation, respectively.
"We are pleased to be chosen as the main beneficiary of this wonderful and creative auction of one-of-a-kind Celebrity Cabbage Patch Kids," stated actor and Board Director of Children's Action Network, Henry Winkler. "With so many children in the foster care system, there is tremendous need for support from our community. The funds raised in this auction will help bring programs and services to these deserving children."
