The Children's Place and Celebs Team Up to Help Kids

04/20/2009 at 07:30 AM ET

Backstage at the Kids’ Choice Awards on March 22nd, the buzz wasn’t about Dwayne Johnson wearing a dress — it was about The Children’s Place working to help those less fortunate. The store teamed up with celebrities — including Chace Crawford (left), Paula Abdul, Debra Messing and David Archuleta — who took a break to decorate their own The Children’s Place messenger bags. The bags — chic totes for boys and girls — feature designs and autographs from the stars, and will be available on eBay from April 14th through the 24th. All proceeds will benefit the Books for Kids Foundation.

Founded to promote literacy among all children with a special emphasis on low-income and at-risk preschool-aged children, Books for Kids creates libraries, donates books and partners with literacy programs to develop the critical early foundation and skills which young children need to be successful in life. Check the bags out here!
