Filed under: AnnaLynne McCordCharity

Anna McCord

These girls had the right idea! If you're going to party, it might as well help out a good cause!

90210's AnnaLynne McCord joined forces with her sisters Angel and Rachel to benefit the St. Bernard Project, one of their favorite charities, by throwing a big bash in Bel Air!

AnnaLynne collected donations for the nonprofit, which helps rebuild the homes and lives of Katrina survivors, while her guests had a blast.

Nice work, girls! We'll be doing the same at Perez's 34th birthday party this Saturday! Donate now to help VH1 Save The Music!

Filed under: MadonnaFilm FlickersSean PennCharity

Madonna auction

This it. This is YOUR chance to meet and hang with the one and only Madonna!

In order to raise money for the J/P Hatian Relief Organization (J/P HRO), a nonprofit founded by her ex-husband Sean Penn, Madonna is auctioning off a chance for two lucky fans to attend the New York premiere and after party of her new film W.E.!

Sure, the small print makes it very clear your meeting with the Queen of pop will be "very brief" (with a photo opportunity, of course), but c'mon, it's Madonna!

We'd be happy just being in the same room as her so we could run and tell all our friends we breathed the same air too! LOLz!

The film directed by the music icon explores the affair between King Edward VIII and American divorcée Wallis Simpson. After one day, the prize package is currently up to $8,000 on CharityBuzz, but there is still plenty of time to bid since it closes on Thursday, January 19.

So where are all of the members of the 1% at? Click here to donate some of all that money to a great cause and meet Madonna!

More Rich People Donating More Money To Nonprofits

Filed under: Charity

Money money

Compared to 2010, more rich people stepped up to the plate in 2011 to give more money to charity.

The twelve BIGGEST gifts from wealthy Americans totaled more than $2.6 billion, while that figure was only $1.3 billion the year before.

Also, (a few) more people are making donations of more than $100 million with ten philanthropists doing so in 2011, while only six could spare the change in 2010.

Donations of $1 million or more in 2011 beat 2010 by nearly $2 billion! In the past year, nonprofits raked in $5.4 billion from million dollar gifts, but only $3.6 billion the previous year.

While most of the recipients of such large donations were educational institutions or museums instead of social efforts to improve the lives of those who have next to nothing, it's still wonderful to see that the super rich are willing to be super nice to organizations they feel deserve it.

TROTT Trains Racehorses Off The Track

Filed under: HorsesAdoptionRescue

horse-trott-saver-rescue.jpg

TROTT is a non-profit organization that rescues racehorses once they are retired.

Their mission statement said:

"Through rehabilitation and retraining in our professional facilities, we ensure each horse donated to TROTT has the chance to learn the new skills necessary for life as a pleasure or show horse in a non-racing home.

TROTT believes that a horse with an "education," or basic training, has a greater chance to lead a successful life off the racetrack."

Basically, they keep racehorses out of the slaughterhouse.

When a racehorse is retired, it is usually only 2-4 years old; still just a baby.

They train these horses so they'll be prepared to go to a loving home, where they'll be safe and loved.

What a great organization. Check them out HERE if U want to see if U can help.

Eric Clapton's Guitars Sell For Millions Of $$$ At Auction!

eric clapton sells guitars for millions

And we thought Stephen Colbert's self-portrait sold for a lot of money…

At a Bonhams New York auction yesterday, Eric Clapton's 75 guitars and 55 amps sold for a total of $2.15 million! WOW!

Best part about it? The proceeds are going to benefit "a drug and alcohol treatment center Clapton founded in the West Indies."

As a recovered addict himself, Clapton formed nonprofit Crossroads Centre in Antigua in '98 in an effort to give back.

Good for you, Eric! This is a wonderful gesture! You've gained some serious points in our book for this one.

We still can't get over that number! $2.15 million! Fantastic!

How much would U pay for an Eric Clapton guitar?
