Former American-Lebanese porn star Mia Khalifa is auctioning off her “infamous” glasses she wore in her adult films to raise funds for the victims of the massive blast in Beirut, Lebanon.

The “used and abused” glasses are currently being auctioned off on eBay with the highest bid so far standing at $100,000 (around P4.9 million). The auction, which will last until Monday, Aug. 17, at 2:30 a.m., has already had 189 bids, as of this writing.

“LET’S RAISE SOME MONEY TO BENEFIT LEBANON’S MOST VALUABLE ASSET AT THIS TIME OF CRISIS, THE LEBANESE RED CROSS,” she noted on the item’s description on the site.

Khalifa noted that she will be adding more to the auction for every $25,000 (around P1.2 million) raised. For the $100,000 milestone, she last added her retainers to the prize.

“The novelty glasses are the best prop, I will sign them (if you want), and take one last polaroid wearing them before sending them off to their new home!” she added.

The former adult film actress, who is also a known activist, shared the news yesterday, Aug. 11, via Instagram as she gave her two cents on the resignation of Lebanese government officials following the blast.

“The Lebanese government has resigned. Parliament is next. By choice or by force, either way, Lebanon has had enough while simultaneously having NOTHING,” she said.

The Lebanese government has resigned. Parliament is next. By choice or by force, either way, Lebanon has had enough while simultaneously having NOTHING. 6 days left on the auction for the original mia khalifa glasses to 100% benefit the @lebaneseredcross. Head to the link in my bio and let’s try to make a positive difference. Keep bidding, keep sharing, keep following accounts like @lebaneseredcross @beiruting @rimafakih @mouin.jaber @ginoraidy @thawramap @impact.lebanon @rebuilding.gemmayze @lebfoodbank. Keep sharing the links for fundraisers by the people, for the people, and DO NOT DONATE A SINGLE PENNY TO THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT BACKED ORGANIZATIONS. The ones who hoard relief money, medical supplies, and food- only to re-sell to the Lebanese people at a 150% mark up. The ones who sit behind and watch the famine, economic collapse, and displacement of their own people on tv from their vacation homes in London, France, and Australia. Ban these pigs from every country in the world until they’re forced to live the same lifestyle they’ve imposed on the people in Lebanon.

Khalifa also asked followers to support the Lebanese Red Cross and other non-government fundraisers as she threw some strong words against corrupt officials of the Lebanese government.

“Keep sharing the links for fundraisers by the people, for the people, and DO NOT DONATE A SINGLE PENNY TO THE CORRUPT GOVERNMENT BACKED ORGANIZATIONS,” she stressed.

“The ones who hoard relief money, medical supplies, and food — only to re-sell to the Lebanese people at a 150% mark up.

The auction has been verified by both eBay and the Lebanese Red Cross, according to Khalifa.  /ra
