Eminem And Other Celebrities Are Raffling Off Rare Sneakers For Hurricane Relief
This hurricane season has been a particularly perilous one, and while there has already been a great deal of damage and destruction, it has been met with an overwhelming outpouring of support from the general public and a number of inspiring fundraising efforts led by the likes of Tim Duncan and JJ Watt. However, those are far from the only famous people to pitch in.
A number of celebrities have teamed up with Detroit-based sneaker resale site StockX to raffle off a number of hard to come by pairs of shoes to raise money for hurricane relief efforts in Houston and the surrounding areas. The list includes Eminem, Pharrell Williams, LeBron James, and a number of other notable names.
For each $10 donation, you get a ticket you can use to enter for a chance to win the sneakers of your choice. Eminem’s shoes— a pair of custom Air Jordan 4s he made in collaboration with Carhartt— are currently the most popular item, but if you’re looking to increase your chances of scoring a pair, Snoop Dogg’s Adidas Superstars or Mark Wahlberg’s Jordan Formula 23s might be more your speed.
All proceeds will be donated to the Hurricane Harvey Relief Fund, a charity that was set up by the city of Houston in the wake of the storm. As of this writing, the raffle had raised almost $38,000.
