Demi Moore frequently adorns herself with Jack Vartanian baubles, but this Valentine’s Day she’s taking her connection with the jeweler one step further. Moore, along with husband Ashton Kutcher, collaborated with Vartanian to create a collection of necklaces in the shape of handcuffs for the Hallmark holiday. While prices range from $710 to $2,140 in variations of white, yellow and rose gold and black and white diamonds, it’s for a good cause—50 percent of sales will be donated to the Demi and Ashton (DNA) Foundation, a non-profit organization that raises awareness about child sex slavery. “I am thrilled to collaborate with Demi and Ashton in such a noble cause,” Vartanian told InStyle. Moore, shown, recently wore one of the necklaces to the Sundance Film Festival. The collection and benefit sale launches tomorrow and lasts through February 14th on JackVartanian.com.

To help with the rebuilding, American Eagle Outfitters—together with the support of celebrities like Garcelle Beauvais (shown top), who was born in Haiti—now offers “Help Haiti Heal” T-shirts in stores, $15.50, proceeds of which go to raising funds for Haitian schools. Tracy Reese (shown bottom) is also helping the Haitian recovery efforts: The designer is selling bags, jewelry and crafts created by Haitian designers in her New York store and will host a shopping benefit on January 26th; a portion of the night’s proceeds will be donated to Haiti relief initiatives.

The peridot and 24-karat gold necklace, named the Acholi pendant, is for a good cause—100 percent of the proceeds benefit the non-profit organization Invisible Children, which aids the children of Uganda. The necklace is now available for $45 on Crowdrise.com, the fundraising website founded by Edward Norton, as part of its Crowdrise Holiday Fundraiser Thing. And with this charm’s tree of life design—a symbol of introspection and soul-searching—this sounds like the perfect holiday gift for your om-loving friends.

The top Broadway star and Emmy-winning actress designed a pair of booties for ShoeDazzle.com, the Kim Kardashian-founded footwear website. The gray suede ankle boots, which she named ‘Little Diva,’ are also for a good cause: 100 percent of the $39.95 proceeds will be donated to the Evan B. Donaldson Adoption Institute. As an adoptee herself, Chenoweth said that working on this charity item was a dream come true. “Being able to be creative and fashionable for a cause so close to my heart really was a once in a lifetime opportunity,” she told InStyle exclusively. “I hope all the ladies out there love the ‘Little Diva’ as much as I do.” Chenoweth’s booties just went on sale this week.
Charlize Theron touched down in New York yesterday to host a benefit for her non-profit, the Charlize Theron Africa Outreach Project, where she auctioned off a pair of courtside tickets to an L.A. Lakers’ game. Men in the audience reportedly promised to double their bids if the South African actress agreed to go as their date, according to JustJared. She did, and the tickets sold for a cool $20,000. We’re sure her $1,995 Versace dress from the spring 2011 collection helped get the bidding going! Theron, one of the Lakers’ biggest—and most stylish—fans, will most likely keep things more casual for her courtside appearance. Check out some of the actress’s previous courtside fashions in the gallery.
