VANCOUVER – Sam Sung was previously an employee at the Apple store in Pacific Centre in Vancouver.
He was used to getting comments about his name and working for a ‘rival’ company and now he’s using that to raise money for a good cause.
Sung is selling his last Apple business card to raise money for the The Children’s Wish Foundation of BC & Yukon.
The auction went live on EBay on Tuesday, August 5, and it has already generated more than $80,000 in bids.
Sung is including his old uniform and official Apple store lanyard with the business card. He even autographed the glass.
His story initally went viral in 2012 after somebody tweeted his Apple business card and media around the world picked up the story.
Sung called The Children’s Wish Foundation on August 5 to share his plans to auction his personal items and the charity thought it was a great idea.
In a release, the director of BC & Yukon Chapter, Jennifer Petersen, said “The Children’s Wish Foundation is proud to be a charity of choice for Sam’s auction and is very grateful for his generous support.”
The foundation works to grant wishes to children between the ages of three and 17 who are diagnosed with a life-threatening illness. Each year they try to grant 1,000 new wishes.
