You may remember Martin Shkreli, or the “Pharma Bro” who purchased the rights to Daraprim, a drug that helps treat people with HIV, then hiked the cost from $13 to $750.

He is now actively involved in a fundraiser he started which will allow the highest bidder to punch him or slap him directly in the face.

This auction was put together to help his friend Mike’s family after he died of cancer.

According to NBC 4, Shkreli says that he will match donations, and you can even film the slap or punch if so desired.

Shkreli updates his Twitter feed to show the latest bid he will consider.

So far the highest has been $78,000.
