Mia Khalifa Glasses: has managed to auction off her iconic black glasses for charity in the aftermath of the Beirut bombing. She has raised a stunning $100,000 for the Lebanese Red Cross (Rs 74,85,530).
The Beirut bombing killed 178 people and injured 6,000 more, and Khalifa wanted to help those who had been affected by the tragedy.
‘I’m just trying to get creative, there’s always more that can be done, and this felt like a clever way to generate funds and make sure the discourse and attention doesn’t veer away from this situation,’ Khalifa wrote on Instagram.

‘Creeps are welcome, your money is just as green as ours,’ she continued. For a few hours, I’ll put the link in my bio, then change it back to the Beirut Relief resources web page. The links/posts will then be saved in a pinned memory for easy access. ‘Have fun bidding, filthy animals.’
‘The novelty glasses are the best prop, I will sign them (if you want), and snap one more polaroid wearing them before sending them off to their new home!!!’ she wrote, listing the item’s condition as ‘worn and abused.’
With every $25k raised, Khalifa has started adding additional personal items to the auction. A ‘old sideburn razor,’ ‘the loofa I’ve been wanting to replace,’ and’my retainer’ are among the items on the list.
‘Let’s raise some money to help Lebanon’s most precious asset during this crisis, the Lebanese Red Cross,’ she added. Let’s go all out and generate a s***load of cash for the Lebanese people.’
