In the spirit of Nelson Mandela’s efforts, the Weinstein Company is partnering with eBay’s charitable platform, eBay Giving Works, to auction off VIP experiences and exclusive memorabilia benefiting the Nelson Mandela Foundation.
The 27-day event (a nod to the number of years Mandela spent in prison before his political ascendance) will kick off Nov. 29, coming out in three “waves” before ending on Christmas Day. All proceeds will go to the Nelson Mandela Foundation, an org dedicated to Mandela’s causes.
The auction is in conjunction with the release of TWC’s “Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom,” which is based on Mandela’s autobiography of the same name and stars Idris Elba as the former South African president. It hits theaters Nov. 29.
“We are thrilled to partner with eBay Giving Works to support the Nelson Mandela Foundation’s excellent work in preserving the memory of one of the world »
