Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj Are Barbie Dolls for Charity!
Place a bid on these Katy Perry or Nicki Minaj Barbie dolls and help raise money for the charity Project Angel Food!
Have you ever wished that you could just snap up Katy Perry and/or Nicki Minaj and keep them in your pocket? Well, now you can—and you can help out an amazing cause while doing it!
Mattel has produced one-of-a-kind Barbie dolls of both Katy Perry and Nicki Minaj, and guess what? CharityBuzz is auctioning them off. CharityBuzz offers you the chance to win everything from designer merchandise to experiences with your favorite celebrities, and each winning bid raises money for well-respected charities in support of dozens of different causes. From now until December 19, though, there’s an extra-special set of auctions going on: The Divine Design annual fundraising event for Project Angel Food. By putting in a bid for one (or both!) of these pop-tastic dolls, you can help Project Angel Food deliver free, nutritious meals to men, women, and children affected by HIV/AIDS, cancer, and other life-threatening illnesses.
The Katy doll is inspired (of course) by her “California Girls” getup, though the cupcake boobs are notably missing. Instead, she sports a dress with a skirt featuring 70 hand-painted mini cupcakes and a glittery bodice, as well as fishnet stockings dotted with Swarovski crystals. She also carries a candy cane microphone and comes with a waffle cone display stage with ice cream mountains and cotton candy clouds.
The Nicki doll, on the other hand, is dressed in an exact replica of her frilly pink dress from the Pink Friday album cover. Her shoes are just as crazy-high, and although you can’t quite see it in this image, she’s even got her signature tattoo on her left arm.
The high bid on Katy is currently $3,000 with a minimum next bid of $3,250, while Nicki is going for $3,355 with a minimum next bid of $3,605. Both auctions will be open for two more weeks, so if you’ve got a major Barbie, Katy, or Nicki fan in your life and have the cash to burn? Well, all we can say is, “best holiday gift EVER.” And Project Angel Food will thank you for it! Place a bid on Katy here or on Nicki here. Happy bidding!
