The world is a rolling hot mess, and occasionally in all the festivity some people fall under its glittery wheels. There happens to be an abundance of mayhem at this moment, much of it beyond the control of the people involved--meaning even a grizzled misanthrope like yourself may reach down in your wallet and pluck a doubloon or two from your fortune and donate to charity.
Tornadoes in Oklahoma and Georgia and the cyclone in Burma have one upside at least: they give you a chance not only to show how devoted you are to improving this "karma" thing Carson Daly's always talking about, but we're turning the nasty energies of college football rivalry into a positive force in the process.
You can take away our Checkers and billboards for gun shops and porno...but you cannot take away our desire to shame our opponents with our generosity.
Donations to charities assisting with either the tornadoes or the Burmese cyclone--where aid is slowly and steadily getting through despite the best efforts of the "murder-first" regime there--and we'll keep tally of the donations as reported. Do good, feel shiny noble throughout your day, and embarrass the stingy bastards at other schools in the process.
1) Make a donation online to the American Red Cross, CARE, or the International Rescue Committee.
2) Email the donation confirmation to email@example.com and state your team affiliation by 8pm EDT on Wednesday, May 14th.
3) Results will be displayed at Every Day Should Be Saturday and Fanblogs throughout the week, with the final results shown by Thursday, May 15th.
4) The winning school will have its colors displayed at EDSBS and logo/mascot shown on every page at Fanblogs.
Florida's currently up fifty dollars on everyone right now courtesy of yours truly, so let the games begin. If residents current or former in Florida are keen on any issue, it's that of randomly being blown to smithereens by forces you can't possibly defend yourself from in the least. (See: pass defense, for example, in 2007.)
Go get 'em, you slaughtering vikings of charity.
