The Slog vs. Gawker Holiday Charity Challenge: Off to an AWESOME START!

Posted by on Tue, Nov 22, 2011 at 2:41 PM

After only one day—just a little over twenty-four little hours!—Slog is kicking Gawker's ass by $2890.00 in charitable donations to help feed the hungry through Northwest Harvest!

All the awesome people who've donated so far to the Slog vs. Gawker Holiday Charity Challenge will get a tag that says AWESOME PERSON on their commenter handle, and you can, too.

Give to Northwest Harvest right now—whatever amount you can afford!—and then forward us your receipt, and you will be officially declared awesome on Slog and in everyone's hearts.

Let's show how much more generous (and smarter, and better looking) Slog readers are than Gawker's!

It'd be a lot more awesome if I had my tag now. NOW.

@TVDinner,

You are 12 shades of awesome. The tag would only be scratching the surface.

Cheers!

@1: Patience! We'll get them up after the Charity Challenge ends. You can donate again if you're eager! Maybe we can make a double-awesome tag for you!

(still bummed about no Strangercrombie this year, but I'm hoping sloggers can help make some cash for NW harvest)

@4 you know, I bet if you guys announced, "You can have your own CUSTOM tag if you donate to this thing," you'd get even more. Just sayin'.

I'd be tempted to get "KENT SUCKS, BAILO" or "LISTEN TO FNARF, WILL".

Shut yer fuckin' trap, TVDinner. I'm only FOUR shades of awesome and you don't hear me complaining. You twelve-shades people don't know how good you have it.

Now, where's my tag????

@10: Do you want me getting a TEAM FNARF tag or not, Mister? Don't threaten me. I can totally run circles around my chair - and narrate the play-by-play - FOR HOURS.

Well, fuck.

Bethany @4, what do you mean, no tag until after the thing is over? Think about it: how many more prospective donors might you reel in to give to Northwest Harvest because their envy, pure envy, was triggered by their having to see other smug commenters flaunt their AWESOME PERSON tag on comment after comment?

Shorter: "Northwest Harvest needs all the donors it can get, so for the sake of the hungry give us our tags nooooooooowwwwwww!!!!"

@15 - I also agree that you make an awesomely awesome point, and I'm in a position to do something about it, by God. Please stand by for your awesome badge, they are being doled out in the order in which the requests were received.

@11, if you become dizzy and fall down you will only have eleven shades of awesome left. You will no longer be in the 1% and will therefore be elegible for TEAM FNARF once again! Get to spinning, spinning, spinning!

@16, here's a real threat: if you don't get me my tag ASAP, young lady, I will surreptitiously black out your teeth in the picture of you winning the Miss Kidd Valley contest that's up in the Green Lake Kidd Valley.

Hey TVDinner,

Her glittery self, the divine Ms. Canuck, pronounced that there are only 12 shades of awesomeness. There are 12 shades of fabulousness (you have all 12 too, dear). I don't make the rules, I just get to help make things sparkly. Shine away, dear. Carry your awesomeness and fabulousness into the future.

Cheers!

Don't forget to have your employer match the donation if possible. :)
