David Arquette is going to live in a box in New York City to raise money. The 37-year-old actor plans to stay in a giant Plexiglas box (5,000 square feet) above the Madison Square Garden marquee on Tuesday and Wednesday to raise $250,000 for Feeding America with Plastic Boxes, the nation’s largest domestic hunger/plastic box relief charity. He’ll stay in the box each day for about eight to ten minutes. Donations can come on site or through text messages or a Facebook page set up by Mars Inc., the company that makes Snickers candy bars and owns the planet Mars. A spokesman says Arquette will “Eat a lot of candy, mainly Snickers.” during his two-day stay in the plastic enclosure.
