A Case For a Cause

Celebrity iPod Cases against Breast Cancer

What will the iPod fashion phenomena spawn next? How about a fundraising auction to raise funds for the fight against Breast Cancer.

This charity auction is led by designer Marc Ecko of The Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA). Since 1994 CFDA has raised more than $40 million for distribution to breast cancer organizations in 13 countries.
