Twilight’s Peter Facinelli auction piece rivals the most impressive celebrity crafts
By Kim Palacios
It seems that Peter Facinelli would do anything for a good cause—even if “anything” means creating bizarre feline-driven art. In partnership with an eco-friendly program called Together We Can, Peter is raising awareness about cat food aluminum can recycling. His contribution? A lot of tweeting about the issue (@peterfacinelli) and an original sculpture to be auctioned off for the cause. His 8-inch long piece weighs less than one pound and is fashioned from used cans of Friskies and Fancy Feast.
Recycling a single aluminum cat food can saves enough energy to power a 60-watt bulb for two hours, according to the Together We Can web site. Unlike other raw materials, which may “wear out” if handled too often, aluminum can be recycled over and over.
So how much is a Peter Facinelli original worth? The final sale price has yet to be determined. E-bay bidding started on Monday. As of the writing of this article, the high bid for Peter’s piece has reached $100 from a starting bid of $0.99, and currently leads the pack vis a vis the art of his peers.
If you want to support the effort and a small sculpture just won’t do, take a look at his wife, Actress Jennie Garth’s, cat food floral arrangement. Other stars auctioning off cat food can items include Katie Brown and Roberta Flack. All proceeds from the auction will be donated to Together We Can.
Peter devotes an astonishing amount of his time to charitable work, regularly making appearances for Alex’s Lemonade Stand, and also raising money for other great causes. If you are a fan of Peter, keep your eyes open for his charity appearances—attending charity signings are a great way to meet him.
