Ellen Degeneres is running the auction with her wife Porti de Rossi. T Earlier this year she cleared out her closet and sold her personal junk on eBay, which earned $70,000 for the Humane Society of the United States, according to auction company Kompolt.

Ellen is vegan and explains on her website why: “I personally chose to go vegan because I educated myself on factory farming and cruelty to animals, and I suddenly realized that what was on my plate were living things, with feelings. And I just couldn’t disconnect myself from it any longer.”
