An AP newswire article by Jake Coyle, via The Boston Globe, reports that:

"The Colbert Report" celebrated its one-year anniversary by offering the show's devoted audience -- the "Colbert Nation" -- a piece of its leader.

Stephen Colbert announced on Tuesday that he will auction the portrait that hangs above the fireplace on the set of his Comedy Central show. The painting depicts a debonair Colbert standing in front of a similar portrait of himself.

The portrait will be auctioned on eBay until Oct. 27, with the winner announced on the show on Oct. 30. Proceeds will benefit Westport, Conn.-based Save the Children.

"I've already saved the world. How hard could saving the children be?" Colbert said in a statement.
