Share Our Strength Incentives and Updates
To make this year's Share Our Strength fundraising campaign a little more interesting, I've decided to commemorate certain early donation milestones by videotaping myself trying to overcome a few food-related obstacles:
When we reach $1,000 in donations, I'll eat a handful of cilantro.
At the $2,500 mark, I'll eat 6 raw oysters.
At the $5,000 milestone, I'll eat a bowl of tripe soup.
But, to make it a little more interesting, I want YOUR ideas for what I should do for the $6,500, $8,000 and $10,000 donation milestones. Heck -- let's come up with ideas for the $12,500 and $15,000 milestones, too, while we're at it. Do you want video footage of me singing some Rick Astley, Celine Dion, or New Kids on the Block at karaoke while doing The Robot? Do a little dance in front of the White House, whisks in hand? Photographic evidence of my walking into a coffee shop while still in my pajamas? Or, as a friend's young son suggested: video footage of me "walking around town with a cute, cute kitty on her head?"
You name it, I'll consider it, and I'll update you as we go.
Or, hey -- how 'bout, if we reach $100,000 in donations, I'll legally change my name to Alinea Blymire. Make it happen, people.
