An unwashed Burberry shirt worn by pop star Harry Styles has fetched $4,845 at a charity auction.

The $293 leopard-print top, which the One Direction hitmaker wore while attending Burberry’s presentation during London Fashion Week in September, was sold off to a Texas businessman to raise cash for the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF).

The funds will be donated to Hardlyeverwornit.com and will benefit poverty-stricken women and children in more than 190 countries.

Rice replaces ice in India bucket challenge

An Indian school boy eats a midday meal provided free at a government school in Hyderabad, India, Thursday, Sept. 5, 2013. India has offered free midday school meals since the 1960s in an effort to persuade poor parents to send their children to school, a program that reaches some 120 million children. The country now plans to subsidize wheat, rice and cereals for some 800 million people under a $20 billion scheme to cut malnutrition and ease poverty.

The famous "ice bucket" challenge is inspiring thousands of Indians to follow suit, but with a twist - they are replacing ice with rice to help the country's hungry people.
