CFDA has gathered their friends and designers for the online auction. They originally had 75 major donations before the auction started and now, the committee has added more to the entries. For CFDA, this charity buzz is more personal compared to their other charity fundraisings. That’s because they have close friends and colleagues which they have worked in the fashion industry that are also affected by the calamity.

100 % of the profits will go directly to the victims of Japan through Japan Earthquake Relief Fund.  So far, the biggest sale in the online auction is the “week in Paradise”. The winner gets to stay at Dian Von Furstenberg’s Harbour Island beach house for a week. The sale went up to $16,000.
