Former Apple employee Sam Sung auctions off his business card for a good cause

Former Apple employee Sam Sung auctions off his business card for a good cause
Back in 2012, we told you the story about an Apple employee ironically named Sam Sung. Sam worked at an Apple Store in Canada as a "specialist", a position which entitled him to carry an official Apple Store business card. Imagine the looks and double takes that followed whenever he whipped out his card.

Sam Sung no long works at Apple, and all he has left from those good ol' days is one business card and an Apple T-shirt. He packaged those two items together in a frame, and put it up for auction on eBay, starting at 99 cents. The auction will continue through August 15th, but right now the highest bid is $6000 USD.

And just in case you were thinking that Sam Sung was exploiting Apple for personal gain, the proceeds from the auction are going to charity. Now, is there any one out there named Moto Rola?

If you read carefully. He worked at an Apple store in Canada. Not the Apple headquarters or R&D research.

Who would want his bogus stuff anyways? It's not worth anything...

While I agree, this is for charity. If he can donate 6k plus for his shirt and cards, I'm ok with that. This is using the Apple name for good.

Aren't charitable donation 100% tax deductible? He isn't giving money away because he is a nice guy. After all, couldn't he just give the card and shirt away for free? Or just keep it?

My friend who works at the Samsung Exprience Store in Woodlands is named Son Ny, one who works at the Sony Store in Galleria is named Xiao Mi, and one who works at the Microsoft Store in Galleria is named No Kia.

Just more proof that no matter where you look, you'll find Samsung inside Apple.

Kind of like how there's trace amounts of cyanide in apple seeds?

Good grief, Arsenic, not cyanide. Totally my bad. Edit to add, it's both, dog.

I think this is really cool that he's doing this. From the auction: I'm going to donate ALL of the proceeds [minus eBay fees] to Children's Wish, BC & Yukon - a not-for-profit that grants wishes to sick children.

this is actually for just the business card...not the lanyard or shirt.

What a dirt bag. I know him and his family (Sister Elaine Sung, Father Eddie Sung). They have a relative in Toronto who is severely mentally disabled and have been unable to care of himself for the past 12 years. They have only mocked and ridiculed the poor man, even saying that they hope he dies so that they won’t bother him anymore. Case of a guilty conscience.
