Original Live Aid concert tees auctioned for African famine relief

James Applegath, Toronto-based owner of Defunked (an online vintage t-shirt boutique), discovered 20 mint vintage Live Aid concert shirts. He’s auctioning them on eBay between now and May 10. According to Applegath, some Live Aid shirts have fetched up to $500 in online auctions.

100% of profits are being donated to benefit the original cause through Africa Aid - a non-profit organization helping to enhance the quality of life in underprivileged African communities.

Live Aid, the world’s biggest rock festival was held in 1985 to raise money for starvation in Africa.

What do you think of using online auctions to raise money for charity?
