Madonna’s MDNA tour may have been controversial to say the least, but items that have highlighted the tour are about to go to a worthy cause.
According to the New York Post, the singer is preparing to auction off numerous items, in order to raise money for the people affected by Superstorm Sandy. Many of these items include a majorette costume and a caged basque that she wore during the tour. Madonna has already part of the support effort, helping the communities devastated by the superstorm, which ripped through parts of the East Coast in October. She previously visited the Far Rockaway neighborhood in New York, where she helped relief workers box up supplies for locals.
