Bidding opened Monday on the The Cronut™ Mission. The mission involves 16 specialty carriers for the hot-commidity treat, designed by fashion folks, Broadway stars, and other New-York-City notables. The pastries will be auctioned off online to benefit God's Love, which provides meals for people who can't shop or cook for themselves due to illness. [Racked National]
