Sam Sung, the most ironically named Apple retail employee on Earth, is giving away his work shirt, badge and business card to raise money for charity. The eBay auction ended last night with a winning bid of $2,653.

“I had a great time working for Apple and would recommend it to anyone,” said Sung in the auction description. “I hope my old business card will go to another fellow Apple enthusiast with a sense of humour and the desire to help raise some money for a good cause.”

All proceeds from the auction will go to The Children’s Wish Foundation, a nonprofit group that “provides children living with life threatening illnesses the opportunity to realize their most heartfelt wish.”

    That guy’s a man among men. Good for him.

    That’s all? I thought he had already had much larger bids in. Oh well.

    I wonder if he would have gotten more if his name was Mike Rosoft.

    I think he has a deep sense of responsibility and, at the same, time, can see the humour behind the situation. Kudos!
