The Royals: Jay-Z and Kanye to Auction "Otis" Maybach for Save The Children

Jay continues his charitable ways.  Just weeks after his history making charity concerts at New York's famed Carnegie Hall, which benefited The United Way and his own Shawn Carter Scholarship Fund,  Jay along with Kanye  have partnered with the Save The Children Foundation.

They are going to auction off their famed "Otis" Maybach and all proceeds will go towards helping to feed Children and Families in Africa:
“The rains have arrived in some areas of East Africa, but the crisis is far from over. It will take many months for farmers and families to replenish herds and replant and harvest crops. The funds raised from auctioning off the ‘Otis” car are greatly needed to help sustain families over the next several months. We are grateful to JAY Z and Kanye West for offering up pop culture history to do good for children in Africa.” Carolyn Miles, President and CEO, Save the Children.
