Variety and Society News tell us more about the Commitment of Rob with the GO Campaign

Variety et Society News nous en disent un peu plus sur l'Engagement de Rob avec la GO Campaign

UPDATE: Added Society News' report


From Variety:
Robert Pattinson fut la star de la soirée ce jeudi soir lors du 6ème GO GO Gala annuel.

Le co-fondateur du GO campaign et le PDG Scott Fifer a remercié Pattinson au nom de 25 jeunes filles cambodgiennes défavorisées, qu'il a aidé indirectement avec une contribution lors d'une vente aux enchères. L'acteur a offert une visite et une rencontre sur le tournage de 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' qu'il a mis aux enchères sur le net il y a deux ans, et qui a été vendu à une femme de Chicago pour 80 000$. Ce financement a permis la création d'un programme d'aide à l'éducation des filles (PAGE) au Cambodge.

"Ça a été incroyable de voir combien une enchère venant d'une personne de la communauté Hollywoodienne pouvait changer la vie de jeunes filles pour toujours," a raconté Fifer avant le gala.

La maison "PAGE" va passer de 25 à 35 filles au début de l'année prochaine.

La star de 'Twilight' a poursuivi ses actes de générosité en participant à la vente aux enchères organisée la nuit dernière. Pattinson a enchéri 5.600 dollars pour un violoncelle fait à partir de matériaux recyclés (construit par l'Orchestre Paraguayen de Cateura). L'évènement a permis de récolter plus de 500 000 dollars.

From Variety:
Robert Pattinson was the toast of the town Thursday night at the sixth annual GO GO Gala.

GO Campaign co-founder and CEO Scott Fifer thanked Pattinson on behalf of the 25 impoverished Cambodian girls he indirectly helped with an auction contribution. The actor donated a meet-and-greet on the set of 'Twilight: Breaking Dawn' for the non-profit’s online auction two years ago that sold to woman in Chicago for $80,000. That funding led to the creation of a Program Advancing Girls’ Education (PAGE) in Cambodia.
"It’s been remarkable how one auction item from a person in the Hollywood community can translate into changing the lives of girls forever," Fifer said before the gala.

The PAGE home will expand from 25 to 35 girls early next year.

The 'Twilight' star continued his charitable streak by participating in the liveliest auction of the night. Pattinson bid $5,600 to win a cello made out of recycled material (built by Paraguay’s Recycled Orchestra of Cateura). The overall event raised more than $500,000.

From Society News LA:
Bravo Robert Pattinson for using your celebrity to help the Go Campaign to give the world’s children a brighter future and by continuing to contribute generously, as recently as the Nov. 14 GO GO Gala, by bidding with enthusiasm at the night’s live auction. 

More than 200 guests – Pattinson included – converged on the Bel-Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades for the charity’s annual Gala. Combining ticket and auction sales, the affair raised more than $500,000 to help children in need everywhere by providing them with homes, education, rehabilitation, safety from sex trafficking and more.

“I can’t forget what Rob Pattinson did for us that had  tremendous impact,” Fifer said from onstage. “Two years ago, Rob generously donated a ‘meet & greet’ on the set of  ’Twilight Breaking Dawn’ for our online auction. And so we put it on Charity Buzz (charitybuzz.com) and it sold to a woman in Chicago for $80,000.”
After recounting the success of the girls’ home, Fifer added, “So Rob, there are 25 girls in Cambodia who wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t just say thank you. Thank you for your kindness.” 

So was the meet & greet worth $80,000 to the buyer? Apparently so.

In a subsequent conversation, Fifer said that same woman later paid handsomely for an advance screening of the film.  

Attending the Gala with friends, Pattinson (in a goatee) bought himself a cello – made from trash found in a landfill – from the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, Paraguay, with his bid of $5,600
