Mia Khalifa is auctioning her “infamous” glasses from her porn days to raise funds for Lebanon following the deadly explosion in her birth city, Mashable reports.

After the explosion last week, Khalifa said on TikTok that her “heart breaks for Lebanon.”

“Our only access to food, medicine, anything is through our port, which is now destroyed,” Khalifa said. “So, Lebanon needs all the help it can get right now.”

To support her home country, Khalifa is auctioning the pair of black-framed glasses from her porn videos.

Khalifa only worked in the sex industry for three months and participated in 11 videos, and she does not have control over the original content. In addition to fighting a large conglomerate for the rights to her content, she uses her platform to inform people about the sex work industry and advocate for better treatment of sex workers.

The glasses, which Khalifa is auctioning on eBay, are currently going for $100,000, and the auction will be open for four more days. All of the proceeds will go directly to the Lebanese Red Cross.

Khalifa wrote on Instagram, “Fuck it, there are no rules anymore. 100k and I’ll throw in my retainer.”

Khalifa urged her Instagram followers to “keep sharing the links for fundraisers by the people, for the people.”


One person tweeted that Khalifa is a “legend,” and another thanked the activist.

Khalifa’s team did not immediately respond to the Daily Dot’s request for comment.
