The actress Q’orianka Kilcher, popular after her role as Pocahontas in a film, is celebrating her birthday auctioning some of her belongings and her presents in order to raise funds to help people affected by the floods in Cusco.
“My birthday party will be my support for all Peruvians who have suffered due to the floods, that have affected more than 500,000 people, destroyed homes and crops, and leaving 80% of them homeless,” she wrote on her Twitter account.
“Right now I am raising funds to help people in Peru. So please be generous and bring not only some fun but also valuable objects,” she said.
Among the items to be auctioned there are several objects signed by stars like Colin Farrel, among others.
