Every two years, the singer Sting and his wife, Trudie Styler, host a benefit concert at Carnegie Hall to raise support for their philanthropic project, The Rainforest Fund. Thriving for 23 years and counting, the fund benefits hundreds of thousands of indigenous peoples in 23 countries on three different continents. Covering a range of issues—including protection of civil and political rights of tribal peoples to preserving the land against resource exploitation—The Rainforest Fund plays a key role in both the support of human rights and the health of our future planet. This year’s concert, held on December 14, includes musical heavyweights, including Bruce Springsteen, Chris Botti, James Taylor, Darlene Love,  Ronnie Spector, Idina Menzel, and Vittorio Grigolo. But the real excitement comes during the after-party, where a silent auction will be held amidst the merrymaking. We've collected a list of our 13 most desired items. Choose your favorite, make a bid, and benefit the planet, all in one fell swoop.
