The Twitter celebrity charity machine is once again banging out the big bucks. This time, television funny man Drew Carey is bidding $100K to buy the @Drew twitter account from Drew Olanoff — a Twitter user who encourages a positive approach to living with cancer.

Olanoff recently tweeted that he would be auctioning off the account to help raise money for cancer charties; and, as there aren’t many four letter Twitter names left, the offer has sparked an attractive amount of attention. Drew Carey tweeted that he would be willing to offer $25K initially for the name. If his account reaches over 100,000 followers by November 9th — that offer would rise to $100K. (Obviously, if his account doesn’t reach that many, Carey will look like an ass — so expect that charity donation to probably stick.) As of this posting, Carey’s followers were just above 33,000.

According to UK Telegraph, Olanoff has become an internet celebrity since his diagnosis with Hodgkin’s Lymphoma in May. “Through the Blame Drew’s Cancer website he has urged other Twitter users to blame their life’s problems on his cancer, with a view to finding a sponsor to donate money to the Lance Armstrong foundation Livestrong for every tweet.”
