The Big Picture:
Whether you're talking about a launch or an auction, the shoe fits! Charitybuzz—known for offering extravagant auction items like celebrity encounters and sports experiences to benefit charitable causes—is offering an out-of-this-world auction item. This is your chance to launch an item of your choice into space.
The listing—valued at an estimated $25,000—goes to benefit SPACE on Ryder Farm, which has absolutely nothing to do with space. Rather, it is a not-for-profit artist residency and organic farm. The weight of your item is limited to 1.1lbs. No hazmats. (Duh!) It will fly for 11 minutes aboard Blue Origin's New Shepard reusable suborbital rocket system sometime next year.
This auction ends soon! Bidding is currently at nearly $8,300. You have until December 18th at around 3pm EST to get in on the action.
