The custom-made desk was used for four tapings of "Jimmy Kimmel Live!" in New York.

After four days of Brooklyn shows at Brooklyn Academy of Music's Harvey Theater, Jimmy Kimmel is chipping in for Hurricane Sandy relief efforts.

The Jimmy Kimmel Live! host will auction off the Brooklyn-themed, custom-made desk used during a week of tapings that ended Nov. 2. The desk is also signed by Kimmel and guests David Letterman, Jon Stewart and Stephen Colbert.

Proceeds will benefit the American Red Cross.

Jimmy Kimmel Live! was forced to cancel its taping Oct. 29 due to Hurricane Sandy; other New York-based late-night shows like Letterman's Late Show and Jimmy Fallon's Late Night went on without audiences that night.

Disney/ABC announced that Nov. 5 would be a "Day of Giving" and on Nov. 2, NBCUniversal channels aired a live star-studded telethon to help raise funds. Hollywood studios and conglomerates, like Viacom, Disney and News Corp., have donated millions for Hurricane Sandy relief.
