Madonna Teams Up with Ferragamo for Italian Earthquake Relief

Italian luxury designer Salvatore Ferragamo and stars like Jennifer Aniston, Madonna, Demi Moore, Gywneth Paltrow, Eva Longoria Parker, Marisa Tomei, Dita Von Teese, Lucy Liu and Debi Mazar are coming to the aid of the Italian town L’ Aquila that lost almost 300 people in a tragic earthquake in early April.
The A-list stars are auctioning off autographed Ferragamo handbags to benefit GlobalGiving’s Italy Earthquake Relief and Recovery Fund. Bags on the eBay auction block include Aniston’s eco-friendly hobo, with her signature in hot pink ink on the inside natural hemp lining and a handwritten note from the actress herself. Bid on Jen’s bag and other personal Ferragamo bags from your favorite star at until June 12th.

One of Salvatore Ferragamo’s most popular bags - the Sophia, was named after Hollywood icon Sophia Loren. Madonna, whose family originated from L’Aquila, Italy, has generously donated her framed python tote with signature Ferragamo Gancio closure.
Madonna has signed her bag for the lucky auction bidder and has included a personal note that reads: 'Enjoy the handbag! All my love, Madonna'.

i love madonna but what am i gonna do with the handbag. sit and stare at it?? its doesn't make me a relative or whatever. if i want something personal from madonna give me a good record. that's what i want. i don't care what you do with the money that you make off of me, including making me pay again for a handbag that i already paid for. thats retarded. make a good dance record. that's what i want.


Madonnas family did not originate from L'Aquila. Her fathers parents were from the town of Pacentro which is not far from L'Aquila.
