Remember those great custom yellow and black Rupert Sanderson heels Sandra Bullock wore on the yellow carpet at the Minions premiere? Now, ten replicas of Minion themed pairs went up for auction via CharityBuzz last week, at a smooth $4,850 a pair. The pumps raised money for L.A.’s Art and Practice organization, which introduces art to the city’s youth through educational programs.
Minion fanatics took home the shoes autographed by Bullock and helped raise $42,425 for the charity, and Bullock’s matching of the total doubled that sum to $84,850.
“When you discover people who are truly giving back, and taking care of our community, I think it’s our duty to support and take care of them in return,” Bullock was quoted saying about the charity.
The Minions are everywhere right now, proving they were not only created for kids, with the film breaking the box-office records of previous animated films Toy Story 2 and Shrek 2, pulling in $115.2 million in its opening weekend.
