These are just some of the unique items on offer at The Stars Come Out Auction on Trademe to raise funds for New Zealand’s Sir Ray Avery’s charity Medicine Mondiale.

It is anticipated that there will be very competitive bids globally.

THE CHARITY

“Both Neil and I believe that no one is as clever or powerful as all of us and this festive and New Year season, the generosity of all these talented and remarkable people will truly make such a difference to our world,” said Sir Ray Avery

“Ray continues his brilliant work to create innovative and low cost solutions to health problems in the developing world which attract s and intrigues me” said Neil Finn,

“He has recently developed a genius new product for infant nutrition called proteinforte and is raising money to build a factory in Nepal to produce it” http://www.medicinemondiale.org/

It is always been Sir Ray’s and Medicine Mondiale’s way to put the technology and spin off commercial benefits straight in the hands of people in areas that are in need. This product could potentially help millions with malnutrition as it is made from byproducts and more easily absorbed than any current formula.

And from Sir Ray. “Neil and I thank all these great people that have said yes to us at this significant time of year and this generosity will really make a difference.”
