Eli Roth holds charity auction

Horror director Eli Roth is holding an online auction in a bid to raise money for the David Lynch Foundation.

The Hostel moviemaker is selling autographed posters from his films, a coffee date in Los Angeles or Toronto in Canada, and a 45-minute Skype video conference with himself.

The charity funds the teaching of calming Transcendental Meditation in schools, and Roth is aiming to raise ยฃ1,920 by the end of the auction next month.

Taking to his Twitter.com page on Friday, the director writes, "Charity auction for LynchFoundation (sic), win autographed posters of my films & coffee in L.A./Toronto or 45 min Skype."
