PHILADELPHIA, PA, February 26, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
-- Avram Freedberg
, avid philanthropist, has done a great deal in terms of supporting charitable causes across the country. In fact, he has, on behalf of his company National Collector's Mint, donated over $2 million to charitable organizations. As such, he takes a great interest in such events and a recent article in Bloomberg Businessweek, which highlights unique celebrity charity auctions, has caught his attention. Freedberg responds to the article with a press statement and calls for individuals who are able to become involved in charitable endeavors to do so.
Celebrity auctions are a wonderful way for high-profile public figures to use their fame to raise awareness about causes about which they are passionate. For many stars, auctioning off an appearance or other engagement is well worth the time and effort if it raises money for a non-profit organization in which they believe. The article describes the experiences of six winners of such auctions, all of which contributed to donations made to philanthropic organizations because of their participation in these events. Peter Guber, Rachel Zoe, Jake Gyllenhaal, Steve Case, and Kevin Spacey are among the celebrities who donated their time for a good cause.
While celebrity auctions are wonderful tools that charitable organizations can call upon to raise awareness and resources, they do not all reach the same level of profitability. Freedberg explains that many charity auctions of this sort go above and beyond the amount of money brought in by those highlighted by the article--showing that these events are even more valuable than they first appear.
"I bid to support Christian Borle when he donated drinks with him in New York City for a theater development charity," asserts Avram Freedberg. "Christian appeared in Peter & The Starcatcher for us, and when the price got significantly past the valuation I dropped out, happy that his auction was successful. While some of the celebrity auctions may go for the small amounts indicated in the article, many others go for amounts much higher and raise lots of money for numerous charities."
Freedberg encourages individuals who are able to donate time, money, or other resources to philanthropic endeavors to make it a point to incorporate this charitable activity into their lives. He believes that supporting the efforts of others to create better lives through research, education, and other initiatives is a wonderful way to give back to the community and encourage individuals to achieve a higher degree of wellbeing.
