2009 has been an eventful year for Yeezy. First the launch of the highly coveted Nike Air Yeezy’s, then a collaboration line with Louis Vuitton, the VMA stint with Taylor Swift, cancellation of his tour with Lady Gaga…yet the year is not ending yet for Mister Kanye West. Sure the year had been filled with happy retail moments, creative moments and scandalous paparazzi-worthy time in the limelight, but Yeezy seems determined to wrap up 2009 on a good note. In comes a collaborative project between the Kanye West Foundation and retailer Karmaloop. The duo joined hands to create a fund raising auction where fans and lovers can purchase autographed items straight from Kanye’s Closet. Some of the hit items we have known and some have desired at one point of time or another includes an autographed copy of the Glow In The Dark book published by Rizzoli, an autographed “Loop Dreams” tee and a pair of autographed tan Nike Air Yeezy. All proceeds from the auction will go towards the Kanye West Foundation. For the unfamiliar, the Kanye West Foundation provides opportunity for young people to engage and participate in creative and performance arts. Why watch over ebay like a hawk and fork over your money to sneaker traders for a pair of Yeezy this year when you can pool your money for a better cause and earn Kanye’s autograph? Check out the auction items and put in your two cents (just metaphorically speaking) for a good deed. Santa will be proud.
