The teen pop queen is putting together a star-studded auction online that will benefit the earthquake victims in Haiti. Cyrus told People magazine, “Ever since the earthquake, I’ve been trying to do my part to help the people of Haiti – and I wanted to do more.”

Here are the details:

Cyrus has talked many of her celebrity friends into donating to the auction, including Britney Spears and Nicole Richie, who donated a minidress from the 2008 MTV Video Music Awards and jewelry, respectively. Joel Madden, partner to Richie, sent some of his clothes to be auctioned. Other donations to the auction were made by Demi Lovato and Hugh Jackman. Cyrus herself is donating the Herve Leger dress she wore to the Grammy Awards Jan. 31, and two tickets to the premiere of her new movie The Last Song.

Starting Feb. 8, fans can go to eBay to bid on the swag, with all proceeds going to the relief efforts of the American Red Cross in Haiti. Cyrus’ sister Brandi and her band Frank & Derol will perform for Harmonies for Haiti, another charity event to benefit Haitian earthquake victims on Feb. 11 in Hollywood.

  1. This is such an amazing thing Miley is doing. The money will do the people in Haiti a lot of good.

  2. Benny McCall says:

    Just over a month ago, Haiti was devastated by an earthquake – over 2 million desperately in need of food assistance to rebuild their lives. The World Food Programme was there before the quake, and they’ll be there afterwards. If you want to help you should go to: http://wfp.org/crisis/haiti or text FRIENDS to 90999 to make a $5 donation.
