I love it when celebrities--and I'm talking the ones who make BIG bucks--donate large amounts of money to charity. I mean really. Just how much money does one person need? Isn't it enough simply to have one million in the bank?
In the past year, George Clooney, Matt Damon, Don Cheadle, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie contributed millions to the cause of their choice. Just this past week, Drew Barrymore contributed one million dollars to feed Kenyen children. Go, Drew!
Yesterday I tripped upon an article announcing that you can win a date with Scarlett Johansson. 100% of the proceeds go to Oxfam America. The bidding is taking place here on Ebay.
The winning bidder will receive:
* Two tickets to the world premiere of He's Just Not That Into You. The premiere location has not yet been determined but will be in either Los Angeles or New York this July.
* Chauffeured car service to the premiere
* Hair and makeup for one by Privé
* A meet and greet with Scarlett Johansson at the premiere
Yesterday I checked in soon after the bidding opened and the bid was at $1100.00. As of the writing of this post it's up to $15,000.00!!! Holy moly! Who has fifteen thousand to spend on a meet and greet with Scarlett? I have to admit, I'm curious. Even more curious as to how high the bidding will go! The more the better, as it is for charity, after all.
So, would you be tempted to bid on a celebrity package like this? If so, what celebrity would tempt you into dipping big time into your savings account?
