Pope's old iPad raises more than $30k for charity

MONTEVIDEO, Uruguay (KGO) -- An auction house in Uruguay says a mystery person bought Pope Francis' iPad with a bid of more than $30,000.

The money raised will benefit a school for the poor in Uruguay.

The iPad engraved with the words "His Holiness Francisco" written in Spanish.

This isn't the first time an unusual papal souvenir has sold for big bucks. A Harley Davidson motorcycle donated by Pope Francis sold for $284,000 at an auction last year. Those proceeds went to a soup kitchen in Rome.
