Charitybuzz recently teamed up with multiple companies who donated opportunities, items, celebrity meet and greets, and other prizes to the highest bidders who were donating their winning bid to a specific charity. One of the companies was Missoni, who offered a 1 month unpaid internship with them.
So what’s the catch? The starting bid for the short term gig with the famed Italian knitwear company was $10,000! Regardless of whether you are a fashionphile or someone who doesn’t care, it seems a bit steep for an unpaid month of working for the company. Especially if the housing and transportation to their offices wasn’t covered in your $10,000 donation.
Is it possible that the company didn’t want to really give away the internship? Comment below.
