Lovely article about the Go Campaign from Ellen Olivier – I’ve extracted the Rob mentions below, but click here to read the full article:
“Bravo Robert Pattinson for using your celebrity to help the Go Campaign to give the world’s children a brighter future and by continuing to contribute generously, as recently as the Nov. 14 GO GO Gala, by bidding with enthusiasm at the night’s live auction.
More than 200 guests – Pattinson included – converged on the Bel-Air Bay Club in the Pacific Palisades for the charity’s annual Gala. Combining ticket and auction sales, the affair raised more than $500,000 to help children in need everywhere by providing them with homes, education, rehabilitation, safety from sex trafficking and more.
Through a network of “local heroes,” who understand the needs of their communities, the Go Campaign has since helped more than 41,000 children. The varied projects have included a girls’ school in Siem Reap, Cambodia, funded thanks to Pattinson.
“I can’t forget what Rob Pattinson did for us that had tremendous impact,” Fifer said from onstage. “Two years ago, Rob generously donated a ‘meet & greet’ on the set of ’Twilight Breaking Dawn’ for our online auction. And so we put it on Charity Buzz (charitybuzz.com) and it sold to a woman in Chicago for $80,000.”
After recounting the success of the girls’ home, Fifer added, “So Rob, there are 25 girls in Cambodia who wouldn’t forgive me if I didn’t just say thank you. Thank you for your kindness.”
So was the meet & greet worth $80,000 to the buyer? Apparently so.
In a subsequent conversation, Fifer said that same woman later paid handsomely for an advance screening of the film.
Attending the Gala with friends, Pattinson (in a goatee**) bought himself a cello – made from trash found in a landfill – from the Recycled Orchestra of Cateura, Paraguay, with his bid of $5,600.”
And here’s an extract from Ellen’s LATimes article on GO Gala:
“Of note: Auction sales have contributed mightily to the charity’s revenue, and actor Robert Pattinson, for one, has supported the GO Campaign as a buyer and seller. In addition to winning a recycled cello at the Nov. 14 shindig with his high bid of $5,600, Pattinson previously helped build a girls’ home in Cambodia by offering himself up for a “meet and greet” on the set of “The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn.” Bidding online at Charitybuzz.com, a Chicago woman reportedly paid $80,000 for that privilege.
“We call [the Cambodia home] the house that ‘Twilight’ built,” said Scott Fifer, the charity’s founder.”

I love that Rob does this low key and never brags about his charity work. He does what he can because he can – as it should be.
UPDATE: Clearly this information was incorrect since we have no pics *sigh*
That’s some stellar company you are keeping there Rob.
According to TalkingPointsMemo, Rob will be attending the dinner to be held on Friday 8 November 2013:
