Eva Longoria Parker held the first ever Twitter auction this week to raise money for disabled children in the earthquake ravaged country of Haiti.

A slew of Longoria Parker's celeb friends participated by offering to follow fans on Twitter and arranging one-of-a-kind meet and greets for the winning bidders, who donated cash to ahomeinhaiti.org. Eva and her friends managed to raise $540 thousand, which will be used to help rebuild The Miriam Center, a home for children suffering from autism and cerebral palsy in Haiti.

Mariela Rosario,

I'm a raging opinionista and I love to share my ramblings on everything from pop culture to food to stuff that makes me laugh & cry! I've worked in all types of media (TV, film, print) and was previously the online editor at Latina magazine before joining Mamás Latinas. On most nights you can find me working my way through my library of cookbooks or playing with my puppy Lola (my only child so far). I have a wonderful hubby who shares my passion for any and all kinds of travel. Together, we've formed a semi-professional wine drinking team.
