UFC president Dana White is part of TwitChange. The Twitter charity effort began taking bids on Wednesday. The highest bidder on dozens of celebrity Twitter accounts will be rewarded by having their celeb follow them for 90 days. All the proceeds go to the efforts to build a home and school for Special Needs kids in Haiti.
All proceeds from the TwitChange celebrity auction will provide aHomeInHaiti.org the means to ﬁnish rebuilding the Miriam Center. The Miriam Center houses, educates and loves on Haitian children with cerebral palsy, severe autism, and other major life challenges and is one of the only facilities of its kind in Haiti. The current facility houses children in the earthquakeʼs aftermath and is extremely overcrowed. These kids need and deserve a permanent home.
@danawhite's megapack is currently $11,100 (as of Thursday night, 10 p.m. PT).
The Cagewriter budget is huge so we're looking to nab at least one celebrity. We may need to beat out Anquan Boldin for Antonio Cromartie. And there's no truth to the rumor that the money is simply going to the effort to build a home for all of @a_cromartie31's kids. That one's for @chaddukes. Come on Jets' fans, Cromartie is just $51 right now.
All kidding aside, there's hundreds of celebrities up for bids.
Michael Strahan might be nice. We're counting on Kelly Naqi and Dr. Ian Smith staying out of the bidding for @MichaelStrahan.
What "Jersey Shore" fan wouldn't want to win the scorned Twitter account of @MTVSammi? If only the megapack included a smoosh with Sammi Sweetheart.
Gayle King is up there. You say, who? Good for you. No MMA blog reader should be aware of @kinggayle unless you actually write the blog. Well-roundedness is needed in blogging and MMA.
It is for charity so no jokes about Pete Carroll. The least Reggie Bush could do is bid on @petecarroll or vice versa.
Bidding on eBay closes in just over a week.
