Bill Cosby Donates Famous Sweaters For Children’s Charity

Published: May 30, 2008 | 7077th good news item since 2003

Seems like these days everyone’s selling the clothes off their back to help raise a little extra loot for the good stuff! Yesterday Ecorazzi told you that Kim Kardashian and Victoria Beckham were both giving up their threads for the sake of charity, and now it looks like Mr. Jello Pudding himself is going topless too.

Bill Cosby is teaming up with Auction Cause to get rid of a few of his famous sweaters on eBay from June 2-12th! All of the proceeds will go directly to the Hello Friend/Ennis William Cosby Foundation charity — a non-profit educational organization started by the Cosby family in 1997 after the murder of Ennis Cosby, Bill’s son.

The idea for an auction came from Cosby’s daughter, Evin, who said, “My mother and father were going through a storage closet, and I happened to be there and pounced on these sweaters. I told them that the price of what some of these sweaters might sell for could make a big difference in the lives of thousands of children.”

Here’s an idea: buy a pair of Kim Kardashians pants, a top from Victoria Beckham and a Bill Cosby sweater. Now that’s hot!
