Madonna - Madonna to auction outfits for Hurricane Sandy

Madonna is to auction her tour costumes to raise money for Hurricane Sandy relief.

The 'Girl Gone Wild' hitmaker visited some of the areas hit by last October's superstorm - which caused millions of dollars worth of damage, particularly in New York and New Jersey - shortly after the natural disaster took place, and is now planning to do what she can to help those worst affected.

According to the New York Post newspaper, the 54-year-old pop star will sell off outfits including the majorette costume and caged basque which she wore on stage during her 'MDNA' world tour, as well as numerous props from the set.

The news comes after Madonna's eldest daughter Lourdes, 16, made an impassioned appeal for people to help US residents trying to rebuild their lives after the devastating hurricane.

Lourdes - who visited Far Rockaway in November with her mother to help relief workers box up supplies for locals - wrote on her blog: ''It's extremely important that we STILL do what we can because people still need help. This can be donating to hurricane relief or going down to the affected locations and helping out.

''My family and I went down to Rockaway a while back and the devastation was awful. It looked like the apocalypse and trash, rubble and tree branches were everywhere. We boxed provisions and gave them out to folks that needed them.

''It was actually really awesome to see how many people were there helping out and how many people cared. There has been an extreme amount of progress since the hurricane despite the damage done and it is very inspiring to see the city rebuild itself but there's still a lot of work that needs to be done.''

As well as Lourdes, Madonna is also mother to Rocco, 12, Mercy, six, and David, seven.
