If you Google PS 41 Greenwich Village School you find that it is a school that serves the children of actors, entertainers, college and university professors and while they are under the NYC schools they have a chef come from the Gramercy Tavern to help prepare lunches. While the school does have great programs it appears to cater to the elite population and I would not bid a penny of my money to help them. What about the poorer schools that really need help, what happened to helping them. Sorry I just don't get it. Power of the 1% I guess.

The auction for PS 41 in Greenwich Village is already too high for me. I just need to win the lottery first.

I have no idea why Anderson is doing this auction for PS 41; does anyone know if he has any connection to the school?

Looking forward to seeing Anderson on Jeopardy again. I know the first time he did it his charity was the American Heart Association. Wonder what his charity will be this time around. If not the AHA or PS 41 maybe a charity helping Haiti or the Gulf Coast?

@7:42PM: Everything Anderson does is for promotion and publicity.
It is rare that he actually donates his time or "gives a damn."
And if you noticed the bidding started way lower this time.
He's lucky if anyone gives over two thousand.
Right now, I wouldn't give two cents.
And as far as Jeopardy goes, I didn't see him the first time, when he was actually charitable, and I don't want to watch his self promotion this time either.
