Something different today …
The girls’ school has been participating in a fundraising effort on behalf of the Oregon Food Bank, whose stated mission is: To eliminate hunger and its root causes … because no one should be hungry.
Kallan’s art class, who has collected an astounding amount of food and cash donations, has set up a last-effort donation page in hopes of raising $250 by noon on Thursday, December 10th.
That’s tomorrow at noon, Pacific Standard Time.
So far, they’ve raised $55.00.
I’m not all that interested in whether or not they make this particular goal, as I know they have already raised hundreds and hundreds of dollars in cash and food donations through their various efforts.
That said … here’s what I propose:
For every $5.00 tax-deductible donation from you guys (just let me know in the comments that you made a donation and under what name), I will wrap and ribbon a copy of Fightball: Dying of Suck and hand it to a complete stranger as I go about my life in the coming days.
I’ll wish them Merry Christmas and act friendly as I do so, lest I be thought a lunatic with festively packaged cat-droppings on offer.
I can be friendly, people.
Which means your $5.00 donation feeds people and also makes people laugh.
Not at the same time, because food snortage is not a pretty thing.
Any takers? Or rather … any givers?
I have 20 copies of Fightball: Dying of Suck I am willing to give away in the name of Christmas and laughter and food.
Remember … the deadline is tomorrow at noon, PST.
