Spike Jonze auctions lunch date

Being John Malkovich director Spike Jonze is putting himself up for auction to raise money for an educational charity.

The generous filmmaker has offered to take the auction's winning bidder to lunch in Los Angeles or New York sometime this year (12).


The Charity Buzz auction is expected to fetch $8,000 when it ends on 19 January (12).


Spike Jonze is handing proceeds over to ScholarMatch, a website organising sponsorship for college students in need of financial aid.
