Stiller donated the lot to CharityBuzz.com, with proceeds benefiting his Stiller Foundation, whose “primary mission is to promote the education and well-being of children worldwide through initiatives that focus on education”. At press time, the latest bid was $23,000 US, with the next minimum bid being $24,000 US.
