Celebrities are known for having their fair share of "baggage" (just ask the folks at TMZ). But JetBlue Airways is asking them to unload another kind of baggage -- carry-ons, party purses, briefcases, guitar cases and other bags -- for a celebrity auction.
A little extra baggage isn’t always a bad thing, especially on JetBlue Airways, the carrier known for offering customers a first checked bag free. To celebrate this liberating experience and help raise money for America’s youth, more than 50 famous musicians, actors and athletes have donated their signed carry-ons, party purses, briefcases, guitar cases and other baggage to JetBlue’s Celebrity Baggage charity auction.
Over fifty celebrities signed luggage, purses, handbags, guitar cases and other baggage for JetBlue’s Celebrity Baggage charity auction on eBay event raising money for DoSomething.org, which is one of the largest organizations in the United States that helps young people give back to the causes they care about.
