High-flying Stars Design Kites For Charity Auction

MADONNA, ANGELINA JOLIE and CHER are among the celebrities designing kites for charity. The high-flyers will auction off their authentic Afghan kites on eBay next month (05Dec07) as part of the launch of Participant Productions, a social action campaign which will coincide with the delayed release of new Afghan movie The Kite Runner. Proceeds from the kite auction will benefit the Afghanistan Relief Organization (AFO), which helps raise cash for the training of teachers and the construction of rural libraries in Afghanistan. James Bond star Daniel Craig, Benicio Del Toro, Billy Bob Thornton, Halle Berry, Reese Witherspoon, Edward Norton, Jessica Biel, Kate Winslet, Will Ferrell and acting siblings Maggie and Jake Gyllenhaal will also decorate and sign kites for the upcoming auction. As well as the kites, the auction will also include a trip to the set of the new James Bond film as a personal guest of director Marc Forster, as well as a private lunch with The Kite Runner author Khaled Hosseini. People will also have the opportunity to bid for the inclusion of their names in Hosseini's next book.
