Afternoon update!

This morning, I posted this fundraiser for mental health services, and you’ve already got us off to a tremendously strong start. I’m thankful, and I’m not surprised.

But it’s time to start incentivizing.

Now, I don’t have quite the history that Spencer and Co. do running these charity drives, so I’m going to pose the question to you: what incentives would you like to see? Autographed photos of Holly The Corgi with personalized insults about me or your rival? I send you Skyline Chili, or I send it to your enemies? Tell me what you’d like to see, and I’ll see what sort of incentive structure we can set up.

But first and foremost, we need a trophy. This is college football country, isn’t it? What are we here for if not for rivalry/bowl trophies that don’t represent any sort of actual championship, but a moral victory at best?

Well, I’ve got a trophy for you.

Gaze upon the wonder of the Action Cookbook Charity Drive Garlic Butter Cup.

A beautiful piece of hand-crafted stoneware, created by Louisville’s own Louisville Stoneware company, renowned for the quality and durability of their craftsmanship. It depicts an array of fresh vegetables, the sort of things you might call “better ingredients”, were you so inclined.

She’s a beaut, ain’t she? Makes the Little Brown Jug look like a little brown piece of crap. But what makes this so special? Why, this isn’t just any vegetable-themed trophy.

Oh no.

Oh yes.

Note: The use of this trophy, which was purchased on eBay, does not in any way constitute an endorsement by the persons or corporation referenced by the merchandise itself. We would not solicit such an endorsement, nor would we accept it if offered.

That’s right, just like Louisville football up until sometime last year, this bears the mark of of the pizza man. And it can be yours!

By week’s end, whoever makes our largest donation will become the proud owner of the Garlic Butter Cup, college football’s newest and most prestigious piece of hardware.

And it’s for a good cause!

Donate if you can, share if you can’t, and thank you for your support, I truly mean it.
