One Direction star Liam Payne is auctioning off a 'onesie' jumpsuit to help raise money for a cancer charity.

The British singer has handed over the green ensemble, which is covered in his band's paint handmarks, to bosses at OnePiece2Work.com, a campaign urging office workers to wear the outfits to pull in donations.

The jumpsuit has been put up for sale on online bidding site eBay.com, and has already raised more than $2,000 (£1,250) as Wenn goes to press.

Taking to Twitter.com to promote the sale, Payne writes, "Hey guys OnePiece are auctioning off my very own jumpsuit all the money raised goes to charity."

The cash will go to FCancer a cancer education organization aiming to erase late stage cancer diagnosis and change the way we talk about cancer.

The auction will end on Saturday (24May14).
