Drew CareyDrew Carey — comedian, actor and host of the “The Price is Right” — is currently on a mission to raise $100,000 for the LIVESTRONG Foundation, which helps people affected by cancer.

It all started on Twitter, when Drew Olanoff from LIVESTRONG asked Carey if he would be interested in bidding on his Twitter name, which simply happens to be @drew.

Carey accepted the challenge and set the beginning bid at $25,000, but later said he would up his bid by $75,000 if he received 100,000 followers on Twitter (@drewfromtv) by November 9. Carey started the challenge with just 13,000 followers, but has since increased that to over 25,000 in just days.

There’s no doubt that he will reach his goal, which will ultimately benefit the foundation in the long run.
