It’s A Wrap!

Christmas charity auction: Nicole Kidman
What makes one wrapping paper more worthy than another? Sometimes it’s who created it. To raise needed funds for the London Guardian and Observer Christmas appeal, which provides educational scholarships for young people in the Teso region of northeast Uganda, seven celebrities were asked to draw their version of holiday wrapping paper. To be frank, not all of the results are smashing, but they are heartfelt.
Among the contributors are Nicole Kidman (above), Rufus Wainwright (below top), Helen (“The Queen”) Mirren (below middle), Vivienne Westwood (below bottom), Jamie Oliver, Lily Allen, and Desmond Tutu. The paper is being auctioned off to the most enthusiastic, charitable, and/or celebrity-mad bidders.
