Want to make a difference in the life of an economically disadvantaged ex-bank chief? As some of you may recall, the collapse of Bear Stearns in March 2008 made a serious dent in former Chairman and CEO Jimmy Cayne's net worth, shrinking $1 billion and leaving him with a net worth of mere millions. For a boy who was once in a position to buy anything his heart desired (90210 Kush, Grand Daddy Purple, Blueberry YumYum, Alaskan Thunderfuck, Lavender Hash, Northern Lights #5), it's meant a seismic change in Cayne's lifestyle. For example, JC can no longer justify the cost of the 10-week sleepaway bridge camp he's attended every summer for the last 18 years. That's where you come in.
According the Wall Street Journal, JC has put his 5,000-square-foot Park Avenue co-op on the market. Purchased in 1981, it appears to not have been updated since. We're talking track lighting, Formica built-ins, the works. It is in no way worth the $14.95 million Cayne and his wife-- who haven't lived there for "years"-- are asking for it. But that's neither here nor there. While Cayne is too proud to ask for charity or a handout of any kind, this is obviously his way of saying "Help." "Help me." "Buy my froze-in-time apartment and defray the cost tuition to the bridge camp I desperately want to go to next summer." "Or just outright send me there." "It's in New Hampshire and the fresh air is good for me."
It may not seem like a lot to you but it'd mean the world to him.
