STRATFORD, Ont.—Justin Bieber fans have the opportunity to snatch up a few of the Stratford, Ont., native’s personal items for a good cause.

An eBay auction began on Saturday with Bieber’s used Toronto Maple Leafs comforter, pillow case, ceiling light and even a pair of his Nike basketball shoes—all of which were autographed by the pop star—starting at US$500 each.

The auction will end at noon on Feb. 7 with the profits going to help support Stratford’s House of Blessing food bank.

Bieber’s grandparents, Diane and Bruce Dale, donated the items to raise money for the food bank and organizers say Bieber signed them when he was in the area over the holidays.

All of the items come with a certificate of authenticity signed by Bieber’s grandmother. The food bank says Bieber and his mother chose to donate the items because they were helped by the organization in their time of need.

A few hours into the auction only two of the items had bids—the shoes and the comforter.
