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.
HERE’S ONE FINAL LINK TO THE DONATION PAGE.

And thank you to Don/@eldergeek, who stepped up last night after seeing me mention this on Twitter.
A for awesome. How do I give you $5?
Click on one of the links I provided in the post, or simply click HERE.
I added one last ALL-CAPS link, in case I was perhaps not clear enough the other hyperlinks were to the donation page.
$25 dollars donated under the name of Maj. Because I’m silly like that and she’s awesomely ridiculous!
Oh, well how lovely are you? THANK YOU, David. Thank you ever so much.
I see that I missed the noon yesterday deadline, but it still took the cash, so good!!!
It still counts in my eyes as well as in the eyes of the hungry people you helped feed this holiday season.
Of course it counts.
