First Drew Barrymore donated $1 million dollars while on The Oprah Winfrey Show, and now Charlize Theron is appearing today to donate her one-of-a-kind Narciso Rodriguez gown that she wore to the Cannes Film Festival in 2000 (her first visit to the legendary event). The gown is going up on eBay to be bid on to benefit The Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, which was created by Charlize in partnership with the Entertainment Industry Foundation. The project’s goal is to create a safer, healthier and better life for impoverished children and their families in South Africa, especially those suffering from HIV/AIDS. And in case you want to wear the dress to your next big shindig, the bias-cut silk gown with Swarovski crystals is a size 4.

why is everybody donating money to africa. what about all those katrina victims, homeless people all over america, single mothers that have nowhere to live, people that have no money to pay for the medical bills…nobody cares about them.
