Stephen Colbert auctioning off show items for good cause

The list of guests for Stephen Colbert’s final week of shows has been announced.

Now comes word of the official auction of set pieces from the show for two very good causes.

For only a $10 donation at www.Omaze.com/Colbert, you will be entered in a raffle for a chance to win his desk or his fireplace hearth. Proceeds from the raffle will go to support The Yellow Ribbon Fund and DonorsChoose.org.

First-place winner will receive the massive C-shaped desk. The second-place winner gets the fireplace, complete with a one-of-a-kind fifth anniversary Steven Colbert portrait, mantle, tools, fireside chair, rug, hourglass, flag, and TV monitor with virtual fire.

Your last chance to donate/enter for this raffle is December 17.

Colbert issued this statement:

“Nation, as you know ‘The Colbert Report’ will be going off the air soon because I’ve won TV. I’ve measured my garage, and unfortunately, it won’t fit both my car and a working TV studio. So I’m raffling off two of the most beloved parts of my set for charity. The iconic C-shaped desk is not only copyrighted, but serves as its own copyright symbol. And the fireplace hearth comes with a leather chair and portrait featuring (L-R) me, me, me, me and me. Either way, a part of the Colbert Report will live on in your heart, your home, or possibly your storage locker. And most importantly, you’re supporting two incredible causes!”

The Yellow Ribbon Fund helps bridge the gaps while U.S. military men and women are recovering at Walter Reed National Military Medical Center and Fort Belvoir Community Hospital. DonorsChoose.org makes it easy for anyone to help a public school classroom in need.
