    Default Charitable Coffee Date with Tim Cook Draws $560K Bid


    On Wednesday, MMi reported that CharityBuzz, a web-based company that raises funds for nonprofit organizations through online charity auctions that often involve high-profile celebrities, recently posted for auction a rare opportunity to meet with Tim Cook over coffee in Cupertino.

    With proceeds benefiting The RFK Center for Justice and Human Rights, a meeting with the Apple CEO was believed to have an estimated value of $50,000. As of Wednesday, the highest among a handful of bids was just $14,000.

    Today, after 78 bids, the leading bidder is now Clearcrate.com, which is offering $560,000 for the meeting with Cook. This is, by far, the biggest attraction in the history of CharityBuzz. The previous fundraising record was set by a meeting opportunity with former President Bill Clinton (it fetched some $40,000).

    But with more than two weeks to go before the auction ends, someone else can still out-bid Clearcrate.com for the coffee date with Apple's boss.

    I rather pay that much to see Steve Jobs instead of Tim Cook.

    I would, too. You could sell them all, have lunch with Cook, and still have millions left over.

    Since it shows the usernames, it's a good way to show off your website cause people will be like, oh they bid half a million, lets check see what their website is all about. That is unless I'm the only one who thought about this.
