Warren Buffett, the third wealthiest person in the world, wants to help out San Francisco's GLIDE. For the past twelve years, Buffett hosts an auction where he'll volunteer to have lunch with a group of people to benefit a deserving charity. This year he picked GLIDE. This morning the leading bidder was offering more than $1.5 million to have a steak lunch with Buffett at Smith & Wollensky's in NYC. Proceeds from the auction go to GLIDE. Buffett calls GLIDE "?maybe the most effective organization I've seen for people down on their luck. It takes people who have hit rock bottom and brings them back. I've seen it with my own eyes."
