The Children’s Place has teamed up with the Books for Kids Foundation to host a celebrity charity auction. Celebrities such as Paula Abdul, Chace Crawford, Miley Cyrus, Kim Kardashian and David Archuleta have custom designed The Children’s Place messenger bags for a good cause.

Founded to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children, Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books, and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. Since its founding in 1986, the Books for Kids Foundation has provided children with more than 5 million books, created 56 libraries and provided literacy programs in many of these locations.

The celebrity-designed messenger bags will be auctioned off starting on April 14th, with all proceeds going toward fostering literacy through the Books For Kids Foundation.
