WE’RE RUNNIN’ THE DANG BALL AND PROTECTING THIS LEAD

Good morning! We’re entering Day 3 of our charity drive to support Personal Counseling Services of Southern Indiana.

A brief recap of what we’re here for, in case you’re landing on this for the first time (quoting myself):

I want to speak to you about a non-profit that’s personally dear to me. For the last three years or so, I’ve been working with Personal Counseling Services, a small mental health organization located in Southern Indiana / greater Louisville. For the last 60 years, PCS has been providing counseling, therapy and mental health services to under-served communities in this area. Sixty-seven percent (67%) of our clients are children and youth and 57 percent (57%) are at or below the federal poverty line.

Our clients include abused women and children, veterans, families, couples, individuals that have been diagnosed with: depression, anxiety, bi-polar disorder, autism, developmental disorders and behavioral issues.

You’ve responded wonderfully, raising $4,565 in the first two days of action. Some business!

  • If you were one of the people who donated over $100 yesterday and would like me to mail Skyline Chili to you or your enemies, please contact me via Twitter (DMs open) or flag it in the comments so I know.
  • We are only $435 away from me bringing Holly The Insult Corgi out of retirement to roast me and/or Ohio State, etc.
  • Our current leader for the Garlic Butter Cup, awarded to the largest single donor of the course of this week:

(please let me know which one of you this is, I can’t always connect usernames to real names, says the guy who only recently doxxed himself after 5 years of pseudonymy)

Anyways, you’ve got a big lead, and there’s time left, what do you do in that scenario?

Last year, as you may recall, I incentivized this fundraiser by auctioning off a hat — a wonderful hat — won by our own very generous ChocoTaco.

I figure, why not do something similar this year?

The hat pictured above, the glorious Run The Damn Ball hat, a limited-edition in-store-only purchase from a store in Athens, Georgia that is not available online, can be yours. (The tags have been removed, but it is new and has not been worn.)

I will send this beautiful hat to the person who makes the single largest donation between the time of this posting and midnight tonight.

Do what you do best, folks, and thank you again for supporting mental health, and for supporting Every Day Should Be Saturday.

DONATE! (And share!)
