Start saving your pennies! WWD reports that Naomi Campbell is set to auction off her Hermès Birkin bag as part of the Parisian fashion house's annual vintage sale to benefit charity.

The tradition of celebs donating their famed Hermès Birkin bags started after Jane Birkin auctioned off her namesake purse, followed by Princess Stephanie of Monaco contributing a bag that belonged to her mother Grace Kelly.

Campbell's donation takes place November 10, when her pale green alligator bag will go up for auction. Proceeds will benefit The White Ribbon Alliance, a charity aimed at stopping women's mortality in childbirth.

The supermodel is a global ambassador and French First Lady Carla Bruni is also involved in the organization.

The iconic Birkin bag -- which has an equally famous three-year waiting list -- retails (at the low-end) for about $6,000 and can rise exponentially when crafted out of exotic skins like Campbell's version.

From what we've seen in recent shots of Campbell, the purse is a Ficelle 25cm model with gold hardware. How much would you bid? Naomi isn't the only celeb with a soft spot for the Birkin -- check out Victoria Beckham's many Hermès bags below. Imagine what she could get at auction for a few of those!

    Victoria Beckham, rocking a black tipped french manicure, arrives at Los Angeles International Airport to fly back to England with Melanie Brown (Mel B) to work on a new Spice Girls single and a television commercial. No surprise here -- the bag is a perfect match for the dress, but we can probably guess which cost more.

Victoria is trailed by several assistants who carry her luggage, block photographers, and escort her through security. Ever wonder what Mrs. Beckham carries in that expensive luggage of hers? Now we know: More expensive handbags.
