It’s nice to see people in a power position in the
valley give up their time for charitable causes.
Apple’s CEO, Tim Cook, recently offered up his time
for probably the most expensive cup of coffee ever,
to benefit The RFK Center for Justice and Human
Rights. The current top bid is a whopping $605K, and the auction ends in two days if you’ve got the cash to
donate. If the “Cook Experience” is a bit too rich for your
blood, then you might be interested in hanging out
with Twitter co-founder and Square CEO, Jack
Dorsey. His recent auction, benefitting BUILD.org,
gets you a full-on lunch with the man at Square’s
office in San Francisco. Whereas Cook’s auction took off with huge bids
immediately, Dorsey’s hasn’t quite gotten off to the
same start. There’s only one bid right now, and it’s for
$5K. Sure, Apple is a company with more mainstream
appeal, and a visit to the offices in Cupertino does
sound fun, but Dorsey came up with Twitter. That’s worth at least $100K, right? All kidding aside, the BUILD organization is doing
great things for entrepreneurs, stating their mission
as: “…to use entrepreneurship to excite and propel
disadvantaged and disengaged students through high
school to college and career success.” Here’s the
pitch for Dorsey, whose auction ends in four days: Learn from one of the most successful entrepreneurs
of our time, Jack Dorsey, as you and seven of your
closest friends sit down to lunch with him at his
newest business, Square, headquartered in San
Francisco. At the end of the day, this is a great way to raise
money for charities, but the winning bidders probably
have a plan as to what they’d like to get out of the
meetings. It would be interesting to get to talk to the
person who meets either Cook or Dorsey, so if you’re
that person, definitely reach out to us. Even if it’s under strict NDA…which would be nice to know, too. If you score the Dorsey lunch, you can even bring
seven of your friends. Maybe you’ll even get invited
to cameo in one of his infamous Vine selfies:
