Madonna Washington, June 4 (ANI): Madonna and best pal Gwyneth Paltrow are putting their purses up for auction, to help raise funds for the victims of the deadly earthquake that struck Italy in April.

The proceeds from the online auction will go to GlobalGiving’s Italy Earthquake Recovery and Relief Fund, reports Contactmusic.
