One of the auctions is a jersey signed by actors Uma Thurman, Luke Wilson and Rainn Wilson during the promotion of their motion picture My Super Ex-Girlfriend. Luke Wilson and Rainn Wilson signed in black permanent marker. Uma Thurman signed in Silver marker. Another jersey was signed by actress Scarlett Johansson during the promotion of her film Scoop. Scarlett signed on the front left shoulder in silver marker.
This year, Jon Bon Jovi and the Philadelphia Soul have partnered with Project H.O.M.E. Project H.O.M.E. is a nonprofit founded by Sister Mary Scullion and Joan Dawson McConnon in 1989. The organization provides a full range of services for chronically homeless people with mental illness and/or substance abuse disorders, including street outreach, safe havens, permanent supportive housing and a range of services to supplement housing. This continuum is an important part of Project H.O.M.E.'s success: each person is recognized as an individual with unique needs. Services at each facility are different; some residents are not ready to accept regimented drug or alcohol treatment, while others may be able to live almost independently. Large responsible for drastically reducing the issue of homelessness in the city of Philadelphia, Project H.O.M.E. is recognized nationally as a model program that other organizations addressing the issue of homelessness strive to emulate in helping solve the problems they face in their own cities.A list of the auctions can be found here on eBay. The auctions expire on August 24th.
