For World AIDS Day 2011, George Michael participated in the fundraising organized by GaydarRadio to support the National AIDS Trust.
GaydarRadio auctioned digital radios that have been signed “with a silver flourish by the gay-friendly high-profile stars,” including George. Other stars who participated in the auction include JLS, The Wanted, Olly Murs, Steps, Stephen Fry, Paul O’Grady, Gary Barlow, and Kelly Rowland.
George signed one of the “super cool PURE ONE Flow internet-connected digital radios,” which was then auctioned on eBay from November 23-December 3, 2011. The George Michael autographed internet radio attracted 46 bids and sold for £510.00.
All of the money raised from the auction went directly to the National AIDS Trust (NAT). NAT is the UK’s leading charity dedicated to transforming society’s response to HIV.
