As everyone figures out ways to help those most in need during these precarious times, photographer Mark Seliger has teamed up with Red Carpet Advocacy (RAD) and auction house Christie's to launch RADArt4AID, a joint fundraising and advocacy campaign that will auction off 25 of the photographer's iconic celebrity portraits. Proceeds from each sale will benefit a charity selected by the photo's own subject.

The online auction will kick off on May 28 and run through June 12. Find out all about it right here.

The roster of prints being sold include the epic picture of Jerry Seinfeld dressed up as the Tin Man from The Wizard of Oz, a faceless 2010 portrait of Barack Obama, a 1994 Tom Hanks with animal paws caressing his face and that iconic bare Jennifer Aniston shot that ran on the cover of Us.
