Hollywood, FL (PRWEB) September 16, 2008
Today is the start of the third week of the celebrity charity auction to save the house where Superman was created. The auction, which runs from September 2 - September 30, 2008, will benefit The Siegel & Shuster Society, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to commemorating the creation of Superman by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster in Cleveland, Ohio.
OrdinaryPeopleChangetheWorld.com, a philanthropic website created by #1 New York Times bestselling author Brad Meltzer, is hosting this auction to raise money to help repair and restore the house where Jerry Siegel first created Superman.
"I hope people get really stupid with their money and bid like silly for this great cause." says Meltzer. "And special thanks to Joe Quesada for making these two items happen."
David Letterman, Stephen Colbert and Jeph Loeb are just some of the A-list celebrities who have donated items to help with this charity auction. This is your opportunity to bid on one-of-kind items and Superman collectibles, donated by famous authors and artists, with all proceeds going to the Siegel & Shuster Society. The lineup for week three includes: David Letterman, Stephen Colbert, Tim Sale, Geoff Darrow, Ron Garney, Joe Quesada, Frank Cho, Eric Powell, Richard Donner, Amanda Conner, Rags Morales, Alex Ross, J.H. Williams, Paul Dini, Matt Wagner, Felipe Masafera, David Lloyd, John Buscema and Tom Batiuk.
Be sure to check out next week's lineup, where you can bid on the chance to appear on TV's Heroes or win an extremely rare, signed t-shirt by Jerry Siegel, among other priceless Superman memorabilia.
