Ever wanted to get your hands on a signed surfboard from Australian pro surfer Mick Fanning? Or perhaps an autographed Thor jersey from Crusty Demons Australian daredevil Robbie Maddison?

They, along with other international sporting heroes, have come together to support the Queensland Premier's Disaster Relief Appeal, by donating exclusive signed memorabilia towards Morrison Media's eBay fundraising auction.

For Mick Fanning, it’s a chance to give back to the people of Queensland who have always given him “such incredible support” throughout his career.

“It tears my heart out to see what some of them have been through but the way they have banded together is amazing and very inspiring,” he said. “I hope this donation helps raise more funds to help rebuild flood devastated areas. I know Queensland will bounce back stronger than ever.”

International freestyle motocross star Robbie Maddison, who also donated an item for the auction, said his own extended family were among those affected by the recent flood devastation in Queensland.

“Donating my Jersey to raise money to help the people of Queensland rebuild their lives is a positive step forward,” he said. “I'm honoured to be a part of this campaign.”

Morrison Media General Manager Alan Brodie said, “Items of this nature regularly attract interest from around the world and are in high demand due to their rarity. By bidding in this auction not only could bidders be picking up an incredible collector’s item but they’ll also be making a much needed donation to a very worthy cause.

“It’s fantastic to see these world class athletes supporting the State of Queensland and those affected by these tragic events. We hope people dig deep and jump on eBay to place a bid or two,” he said.

The auction is now live on eBay at www.morrisonmedia.com.au/ebay
