Will Smith Auctions Art for Haiti
Will Smith and wife Jada Pinkett-Smith, along with fellow celebrities, recently auctioned off artwork to fight hunger in Haiti -- and the aid couldn't have come at a better time.
Starting January 8, Will and Jada teamed up with the United Nations World Food Programme (WFP) to eradicate hunger in Haiti. The superstars -- along with Wyclef Jean, Natasha Bedingfield, Toby Keith and others -- signed special artwork to donate at the Nobel Peace Prize concert last month.
The artwork is being sold on eBay, and is based on a map of world hunger. Will personally decorated the art, and wrote, "There can be no true peace in the world while there is hunger."
The actor's aid comes at a dire time for the country's capital Port-au-Prince, which was devastated by a 7.0 earthquake yesterday.
All proceeds from the auction will go toward providing nutritious meals to schoolchildren in Haiti.
