Tilda Swinton - Tilda Swinton Joins Handbag Auction

Tilda Swinton has joined a host of celebrities to auction their handbags for charity.

The generous 'We Need To Talk About Kevin' star has donated two designer handbags, one from Chanel and another by Victor & Rolf to Save the Children's 'Bag to Save a Life' appeal which will launch tomorrow (25.11.11).

Encouraging people to get involved, Tilda said: "Bid high! Bid so much higher than you think you will or can! Think of a dicey number and double it. And then double that. No fancy bag can ever carry what your generosity will mean to the children it will help to live.

"Make this beautiful object truly valuable by investing real money in real life - and carry the evidence with pride. Don't count the cost. Think of it as paying something back for all there is to be grateful for in your days."

Other celebrities including Sienna Miller, Florence Welch, Gemma Arterton, Georgia May Jagger, Annie Lennox, Minnie Driver and Anna Friel have also given a selection of designer handbags from Christian Louboutin, Mulberry, Jimmy Choo, Miu Miu, Prada to the appeal.

The Bag to Save a Life online auction is part of the No Child Born to Die campaign to stop the deaths of more than eight million children in some of the world's poorest countries every year.

The online auction is live from tomorrow and will close on Sunday December 4th. Visit www.savethechildren.org.uk/bagtosave to place a bid.
