An eclectic group of sixteen high-profile celebrities including Orlando Bloom, Scarlett Johansson, and Rachael Ray have backed a World Wildlife Fund global warming campaign by declaring they’re hotter than they should be. “Hotter than I Should be” t-shirts autographed by the stars are currently on eBay to benefit the WWF’s climate change programs.

The auctions will run between October 3rd and October 12th, and they’re drawing impressive attention. Orlando Bloom’s olive green t-shirt is currently at $500, with just under eight days still remaining. The “hotter than” t-shirts are hot items indeed: several auctions have already received dozens of bids.

The auction proceeds will go to the World Wildlife Fund’s climate initiatives. The WWF currently works to educate and enact legislative, industrial, and personal changes in the way we impact the climate. As a wildlife-focused organization the WWF’s particular interest is the potential for climate change to destroy species and disrupt ecosystems.

Celebrities who’ve signed shirts for the auction fund raiser are Scarlett Johansson, Orlando Bloom, Rachael Ray, Harrison Ford, Cate Blanchett, Oliver Stone, Tobey Maguire, Candice Bergen, Gisele Bündchen, Kevin Bacon, Paul Newman, Martin Short, Charlie Sheen, Cindy Crawford, Betty White, and Susan Sarandon.

The t-shirts are available sans autograph directly through the World Wildlife Fund with a $50 or greater donation. For more information about the WWF programs and to make a donation, visit the WWF Global Warming page.
