We've all got closet issues—even Oprah. It could be impulse buying. Or a weakness for the pretty but impractical. Or the firm belief that someday—someday!—that jacket from 1993 will be in style again. With the help of O's creative director, Adam Glassman, Oprah says farewell to dozens of old favorites, all being auctioned off soon on eBay to benefit the Oprah Winfrey Leadership Academy for Girls in South Africa.
Opened in 2007 with 150 low-income seventh-and-eighth graders, the school now enrolls about 300. The first senior graduation will be in 2011 (and Oprah already has her outfit picked out).
Whether you're purchasing one of Oprah's "Big Auction" items or simply shopping on eBay.com, you can maximize the funds raised for Oprah's Leadership Academy by donating through the Give @ Checkout feature on eBay.
