Breaking Bad stars auctioning finale tickets for charity

Breaking Bad actors Bryan Cranston and Aaron Paul are using the show's finale party to raise money for charity.

Cranston and Paul are giving fans a chance to ride along with them in the show's signature meth-cooking RV to the Hollywood Forever Cemetery screening and they're hoping to raise $750,000 (GBP500,000) for Paul's wife Lauren Parsekian's anti-bullying nonprofit - The Kind Campaign.

Instead of auctioning off the tickets to the highest bidder, Paul is using the fundraising website Omaze.com.

Last year (12), Cranston used the platform to raise over $300,000 (GBP200,000) for the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children.

On Saturday (14Sep13), props from the hit show were sold off at a charity auction in New Mexico.

The sale at a thrift store in Albuquerque attracted huge queues of fans desperate to snap up souvenirs, including a pair of shoes worn by Cranston, as well as a pair of his character's trousers, several shirts, and a variety of chemistry lab equipment.
