There is a knock on your door.
You see: a strapping young lad, envelope in hand. You are impressed and distracted by his long hair, reminiscent of the 60's.
He introduces himself: "Hi, my names Jordan Wells and I'm raising money to fight hunger by participating in World Vision's 30 Hour Famine".
You ask: Sure, how can I help?
Jordan replies: "Well, I'm participating in 30 Hour Famine at my churches youth group. We are raising money to..."
You cut him off to ask: What church?
He looks nervous: "Well.....Gingellville Community Church..."
You remember: I've heard of them...weren't you people standing on the corner of Clarkston and Indianwood protesting abortion?
Jordan rolls his eyes: "Ugh don't remind me...Don't worry, I wasn't there. Thats my next point actually. I'd like to prove a point. You see, I'm specifically going to liberal thinkers to raise money. I'm attaching a letter explaining how all the raised was through DailyKos.com to my donation envelope. Can you believe theres people at that church who believe us whacky liberals don't look out for the world the same way they, the "good christians", do? They are too close minded to look and research and watch us in action! They don't realize "good christians" aren't the only ones raising money for tsunami or Katrina victims!"
You interrupt his tirade: You mean they really think that? But I've done so much!
Jordan shrugs: "I know...but they haven't seen it! That's why my letter attached to my donation envelope will be such a big deal."
You reach into your wallet: So who do I make this check out to???
Can I get a group "Heh!" for text based RPG humor?
Anyway that's the deal...I'm raising money to fight hunger. My goal is $360 which will feed a child for a year. $1 a day. How many days can you chip in for?
Already, Kossacks have donated $180! Thats 6 months! 6 more $30 donations and I've met my goal. Smaller donations are OF COURSE welcome!!!
