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 £1,920 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."
