Van Ness Wu X The House of GLAM Charity Auction: New 3.V.O.7 Jewelry Collection Launches Via Silent Text Auction to Raise Money for Qinghai Earthquake Victims

Taiwanese American artist Van Ness Wu will hold a silent auction with LA events-production company The House of GLAM of the new collection for his jewelry line 3.V.O.7. to raise funds for UNICEF relief efforts for children in earthquake-ravaged Qinghai Province, China.

LOS ANGELES, California, May 03, 2010 – In the wake of the devastating earthquake that struck Qinghai Province, China, Taiwanese American artist Van Ness Wu has come together with LA based The House of GLAM to hold a charity auction of two items from his new jewelry line 3.V.O.7.

Wu said about the earthquake, “First thing that came to mind was shock that it happened again so soon, the people whose lives will be forever changed by this event, and what I could do to help. I believe there is a reason for everything, God is really moving.”

UNICEF reports that thousands of children in Yushu County are without sufficient housing or clothing; much of the region’s medical and school facilities were also destroyed or severely damaged by the earthquake. The organization has focused its attention on rescue efforts, as well as providing both medical emergency supplies and school supplies for children in the earthquake zone.

The silent auction will be held via text message and will run for 5 days from Tuesday May 4 2010 to the Saturday May 8. The announcement of the winning bids will take place on May 8 at 1am at the new club Industry in West Hollywood where The House of GLAM hosts their weekly Saturday events. The items for auction will be on display on the night of the event from 11-12am showcased by two models making their way through the venue. The House of GLAM will match the donations generated from the silent auction. All proceeds from the charity event will go to support the United Nations Children Fund (UNICEF).

Two boxes will be up for charity auction: the first box will be the 3.V.O.7 F DOLL, and the second box will be a two-ring combo set containing a 3.V.O.7 ring and a V ring. Each of the bid items will include a personal note from Van Ness thanking the winners for their contribution to the relief efforts. Winners of each bid will receive their 3.V.O.7 and will get the opportunity to personally meet and be photographed with Van Ness Wu.

China has suffered a series of severe natural disasters in the last three years, including a 6.2-magnitude quake in August of last year and a massive magnitude-8 quake in 2008 that killed 87,000 people in Sichuan.

This most recent earthquake, which took place on April 14, was measured as having a magnitude of 7.1 by the Chinese earthquake agency. The death toll has risen to over 2,000 people, with thousands more numbered amongst the injured.

Van Ness Wu is known in Taiwan and throughout Asia for his roles in several movies and television dramas, including the highly popular “Meteor Garden” and, more recently, “Autumn’s Concerto.”

He has released music as part of Taiwanese boyband F4, as well releasing three solo albums of his own. In addition to his work as an actor and singer, Wu has also directed his creativity to other entrepreneurial ventures.

Wu started his jewelry line 3.V.O.7 in 2009 in conjunction with Janet Yang of Dazzling and J-Y Fashion. When asked about the inspiration for his jewelry, he answered, “Love. Love is the inspiration I have behind all that I do. Whether it’s something that I love to do, or hate to do, I approach it with an attitude of gratitude guided by love.”

“All that I have is not mine; all that I have I cannot bring with me when I’m gone,” Wu added, “So if all that I am and have can help, whenever help is needed, I will gladly give.”

Said Wu, “I’m excited to be able to launch my new 2010 3.V.O.7. jewelry collection and contribute to UNICEF’s relief efforts in China at the same time. It’s great to see something I put my effort and creativity into being used to help those who have suffered so much because of the earthquake.”
