We’re embracing the crazy again at The Junk Drawer. If I gave you the chance, what would you dare me to do? Something gross? Something scary? Something embarrassing?
If I offered the power to choose one of those things, and I promised to do it on camera, would you pay for the opportunity?
Read on and see how the crazy works.
Bill White, a columnist from my local paper, The Morning Call, sponsors a fundraiser every year for a food bank in our area.
He’s also responsible for one of my family’s most-anticipated holiday traditions – visiting elaborately decorated homes on a Christmas lights tour that he designs based on reader submissions.
He drives by every nominated home and publishes a tour of the very best ones, including driving directions to take from house to house. It’s a huge deal around these parts and my family picks one of the routes to enjoy every year.
What’s really fun is that Bill turned his fundraising efforts and the lights tour into a challenge for his readers to collect as much as possible for a chance to win a personal tour with him.
Those who make the largest donations to the Second Harvest Food Bank of the Lehigh Valley get to be driven around in style to see homes on the tour.
And I want a tour!
Here’s where you come in.
If I can reach my fundraising goal of $750 by December 14 that should guarantee me and my family a tour with Bill.
AND! My sisters and I are willing to match your gifts (up to $250).
What’s in it for you besides spreading Christmas cheer? YOU. GET. POWER.
Your reward for making a donation is to vote on which of the following you’d like to see me do. I MUST DO whichever one receives the most votes.
1. Eat my first ever peanut butter and jelly sandwich. Many of you know I find these two foods together a rather disgusting combination. I’ve gone my entire life without one, but I’d make an exception if it meant others could go a little less hungry.
2. Ride a horse. Some of you may recall this being on my list of 10 Things I Don’t Have the Guts To Do. I’m afraid. I’m afraid. I’m afraid. And the horse should be, too. Do horses have weight limits?
3. Wear full clown gear to work all day. Face paint, big red shoes, wig. Everything. I will work as normal on my clients’ computers, go to meetings, and eat lunch with strangers. In public.
If you’re willing to donate, please use the ChipIn tool below to make a secure contribution. And THANK YOU!
Then leave a comment indicating which task you’d like me to do. If I hit my goal, I’ll get the job done and post back with a video of me in action.
REMEMBER: ALL DONATIONS DUE BY DECEMBER 14! That’s not a lot of time, but I know you can do it.
You have the power!
