Once again, Jeremy “Shoemoney” Schoemaker is whoring his body out to raise the type of money that only the high-class hookers usually see. But luckily this money is going to a very good cause.
How exactly does Jeremy selling his body and a charity that serves children go together, you ask? Well, each year during Affiliate Summit West, Jeremy spends three days meeting with other internet marketers, having his picture taken dozens of times and giving a speech that thousands of people show up to watch. With so many eyes on him, his body is prime real estate for a company to put their logo on. So each year, he auctions it off on eBay, and companies happily pay. The company with the winning bid gets Jeremy walking around the show for all three days in a t-shirt with their logo. The money is donated to a charity of Jeremy’s choice, and everyone is happy.
This year the charity that benefits from Jeremy’s t-shirt auction is Matt Talbot Kitchen and Outreach, a faith-based hunger relief and outreach program in Lincoln, Nebraska. Devoted to serving homeless and near homeless men, women, and children, MTKO provides meals twice daily, 365 days a year.
An article about it was published this week in the Lincoln Journal Star Online, and before she wrote it, journalist Cindy Lange-Kubick reached out to Darin for some information (BMI Elite was last year’s auction winner). He explained what a big deal Jeremy is in the internet marketing space, and why brands are willing to pay so much money to be connected to his name and brand. Of course, it definitely helps that the money is going to a good cause.
This year’s auction winner is Go Social in Switzerland. Hopefully they read that Jeremy’s a messy eater and they send some extra shirts!
