George Clooney, Paul Rudd, Ben Stiller, Kenny Chesney, Ellen DeGeneres, the NBA’s Stephen Curry and more stars have teamed up with eBay for Charity to benefit Home for Our Troops, a nonprofit that provides injured veterans with homes.
Clooney put his 2017 Dresser Touring Ultra Limited FLHTK Harley Davidson up on the website. The starting bid for the motorcycle is $25,000.
Other stars are offering to spend time with their highest bidders. Rudd is auctioning off an intimate lunch for two, while Owen Wilson will play in a tennis match against his highest bidder. Country singer-songwriter Chesney offered a personalize guitar and meet-and-greet to one winner, and another bidder will be able to sit courtside at a New York Knicks home game with Ben Stiller.
Jake Gyllenhaal has auctioned off tickets for his upcoming off-Broadway production Sea Wall/A Life, while Judd Apatow will welcome a bidder onto the set of his latest project.
A number of talk show hosts are also involved in the initiative. Conan O’Brien, Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers and Jimmy Kimmel have all donated tickets to their respective talk shows and will meet the winners at the tapings.
Another winner will have the opportunity to visit the set of It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia. The show’s stars Glenn Howerton, Rob McElhenney, Charlie Day and Kaitlin Olson will then join the guest for lunch.
Athletes including Curry and the NFL’s Cameron Wake, Joe Staley, Devin McCourty, Carson Wentz and Zach Ertz have agreed to auction off autographed paraphernalia for the cause.
Hip-hop group Beastie Boys, golfer Tiger Woods and CNN’s Jake Tapper are among the other stars to contribute to the initiative. The star-studded Veteran’s Day campaign is set to run until Nov. 15. All proceeds will benefit Homes for Our Troops. All items up for auction can be found at eBay.com/homesforourtroops.
