A Truly Unique Gift: Celebrity Ties for Christmas 2011

December 3rd, 2011 · No Comments · Poverty

Let’s face it, the tie has been a little bit overdone as a gift over the years. Men get them for Father’s Day, their birthday, Christmas, and any other occasion in between. There was a time when having 100 ties in a tie drawer was a useful thing, but that was back when everyone wore ties to work. But unless he’s a lawyer or an executive in a big company, chances are your recipient will smile and not think about your gift for a while.

There is one exception to this rule, and that’s when you give him a tie signed by a superstar. Imagine giving him a Georgio Armani tie signed by Carmelo Anthony.

Or a Gucci tie signed by Dwayne Wayde.

These two celebrities, along with Kevin Spacey, Derrick Rose, Kevin Bacon, Fergie, Jay Leno, Isiah Whitlock Jr., Matt Dillon, Tyreke Evans, David Duchovny, Peter Facinelli, Kenneth Faried, Xavier Henry, David Tutera, Al Horford, Gordon Ramsay, Al Roker, George Kotsiopolous, Tom and Ray Magliozzi, Russell Westbrook, Tim Gunn, Zach Galifinakis, and Rainn Wilson have all donated signed ties to a CharityBuzz auction that has been going on since November 15 and WILL be ending in three days, on Tuesday December 6 at 3:21 PM Eastern Time.

The proceeds of this auction will go to CareerGear, a fantastic charity that started in 1999 with a very unique goal: to help ensure that men who couldn’t afford something as essential as a suit could be given a suit to go to interviews with. This very simple thing could disrupt the cycle of hopelessness and low self esteem and change the course of a man’s life to one that with a trajectory of growth and success.

In the years since, they’ve added programs to help mentor people in their jobs, help with interview preparation, and help coach them in financial, parenting, and other skills. They’ve helped give thousands of men a chance.

It’s a great cause, but they need your donations. If you have a gently-used suit, they’ll accept it as a donation. And be sure to visit the auction before it ends Tuesday Afternoon!
