The Humane Society of the United States is selling a single page, six point outline of the speech Vick gave after pleading guilty in his dogfighting case and bids have reached the thousands.
By Thursday afternoon bids had already reached $10,000. The organization is planning to put the money in an account used exclusively to prevent dogfighting.
The bidding started Tuesday, even though there is no verification that Vick used the notes in his speech. Wayne Pacelle, Humane Society of the United States president, said an employee of the society found the notes on a Richmond hotel podium after Vick walked away.
"Our motive is only to help animals and it would be something if we can do that through taking the conduct of Michael Vick and turning it into something positive," said Pacelle.
