Ellen DeGeneres, Devon Still auctioning signed jersey

Tuesday December 2nd, 2014

Cincinnati Bengals defensive tackle Devon Still and her 4-year-old daughter, Leah, have inspired the country this season with the courageous way Leah has fought against cancer.

Now there's another way to help Leah and other sick children.

Still and DeGeneres have teamed up to auction off a signed Bengals' No. 75 Still jersey, with all proceeds going to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia, the facility where Leah has been receiving treatment.

In addition to the aforementioned pair, the jersey has also been signed by a host of other celebrities, including Taylor Swift, Matthew McConaughey, President Bill Clinton, Bill Murray, Cameron Diaz, Jamie Foxx, Sofia Vergara, Jim Carrey, Daniel Radcliffe, Anne Hathaway, LL Cool J, Jason Sudeikis, Jennifer Aniston and One Direction.

The auction, which can be found here, is being done through eBay Giving Works and their 2014 Holiday Charity Shop. Bids are being accepted from now until Dec. 9.

Here's a picture of the jersey:

As of Tuesday evening, bidding for the jersey stood at $305.

Earlier this season, the Bengals donated all proceeds from sales of Still's jersey to Cincinnati Children's Hospital. The Saints and head coach Sean Payton bought 100 of the jerseys, and Still thanked Payton personally when the Bengals played at New Orleans last month.

This isn't the first time DeGeneres has helped Still. When the player appeared on her show in October, DeGeneres surprised him with a $10,000 donation to The Children's Hospital of Philadelphia.
