fashion x philanthropy: the obakki foundation launches celeb auction to raise funds for sudan

Put your serious faces on, friends: it's time to get real for a post. I recently heard about a great philanthropic initiative that Obakki is launching next month and had to share it with you.
Next month, The Obakki Foundation is launching "The Rainmaker Auction", an online eBay auction to raise $200,000 to help fund the drilling of 200 water wells in South Sudan this December.

The auction runs from November 1st - 14th and features one-of-a-kind experiences as well as hundreds of signed auction items from celebs like Taylor Swift, Beyonce, Garth Brooks, Tiger Woods, Carrie Underwood, Katy Perry and more. New auction items will be released daily on the Obakki Foundation eBay account over the duration of the two weeks.

Treana Peake, the brand's Creative Director, founded the Obakki Foundation in 2009 to help provide clean water projects and educational development in Africa. As with all of the Obakki Foundation’s fundraising projects, 100% of money raised will go towards drilling the much needed water wells in Sudan. Projects start immediately and auction winners will quickly be able to see the impact their donations have created.

Learn more about The Obakki Foundation, and be sure to check out the Rainmaker Auction between November 1st and 14th.
