Buy Sundance Swag For Charity!

01/25/2007 at 05:00 PM ET

Swag suites tend to be frenzied and noisy, with publicists breathlessly offering their goods while photographers record the stars deciding what they want (for free). Luckily, the hectic vibe at Sundance was tempered by some stars taking the time to actually give back. At the Gibson/Getty/ET Lounge, Mandy Moore, Josh Hartnett and more autographed a Gibson guitar which will be part of an April 2007 live auction off to benefit Gulf Coast musicians affected by Hurricane Katrina. Starting Feb. 6, you can bid at charityfolks.com for thousands of dollars worth of Rebecca Beeson items (from the Premiere Lounge) donated by Sienna Miller and Robin Wright Penn to benefit the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. Neutrogena (at the Luxury Lounge) had more than 75 stars — including Justin Timberlake, Laura Linney and Rainn Wilson — make original drawings for an eBay auction to benefit the American Cancer Society. And celebs took matters into their own hands as well: Kevin Bacon has organized an eBay auction of not only his own loot from the Marquee Suite, but also donated swag from stars including wife Kyra Sedgwick, Diddy and Keri Russell. Proceeds will benefit the Network for Good through the actor’s new foundation Six Degrees.

It’s great that the stars are helping causes. But I haven’t read about stars helping autism. Maybe they have and I just missed the artical.
