Economic times are tough for tens of millions of Americans, and who better to step in and lend a helping hand to those in need than Jamie Spears.
At Jamie's direction, an oil portrait of struggling singer Britney Spears is being auctioned to raise money for the non-profit Promises Foundation.
The charity provides assistance for low-income mothers and their children.
The 5-by-4-foot oil painting was created by artist Daniel Maltzman. The star herself has autographed the artwork, which depicts Britney Spears topless in a bikini bottom with her eyes closed and her arms crossing her chest.
The painting is being auctioned on eBay with a starting bid of $10,000. The winner will receive an ownership letter from Spears' father Jaime.
