We all have heard the astounding news that Warren Buffett has announced that he will donate much of his $44 billion fortune to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (and 5 other Foundations).
But did you know that this great philanthropist is also making use of the Internet for philanthropic purposes [ http://news.yahoo.com/s/nm/20060626/tc_nm/buffett_lunch_dc;_ylt=Atfk_00e4f3SJCKm.KljAQNT.3QA;_ylu=X3oDMTA5aHJvMDdwBHNlYwN5bmNhdA-- ]? He is currently offering lunch with himself to the high bidder.
There are still two days left for you (or someone else) to bid. As of this posting the current high bid is $502,400 [ http://cgi.ebay.com/Warren-Buffett-Power-Lunch-to-Benefit-Glide-Foundation_W0QQitemZ6639163837QQihZ012QQcategoryZ16071QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem ].
This represents roughly a 1500% increase over the offline bidding for this same luncheon opportunity offered in 2003.
The Internet is hot and the worlds greatest philanthropist is not being left out!
