Mika Auctions Shoes For Life-saving Charity
The pop star donated the colourful Converse sneakers to members of his Mika Fan Club, who sold them off in a memorabilia auction to mark the group's fifth anniversary on Saturday (07Jan12).
Mika was delighted after learning the shoes pulled in $2,800 (£1,750), which his fans are pledging to London's Air Ambulance emergency service.
In a Twitter.com post, the star writes, "Just heard the Mika Fan Club auction raised some crazy high figures, am blown away, 1,750 pounds for a pair of shoes. Am SO chuffed!"
London's Air Ambulance helicopter response team rescued Mika's sister Paloma Penniman in October 2010 after she fell from a window at her home and was impaled on a metal rail.
She was cut from the spikes, one of which had entered her abdomen, and flown to the Royal London Hospital for emergency treatment.
