NOTE: Kenny G is not now and never was involved in the Slog vs. Kenny G Holiday Charity Challenge.


It’s the holidays, and people are hungry. Right now, Northwest Harvest is providing 1.7 million meals a month to hungry families across Washington. The Evergreen State is the 14th hungriest state in the country—and more than half of the people who are hungry here are children and the elderly.

It costs only 67 cents to feed a family of three a meal through Northwest Harvest.

Let’s see how much we can help, Slog! Last year, we raised $29,327.21, helping a mountain of food get to a whole lot of people in need and showing that Slog readers are a million times better than Gawker readers, who didn't give a goddamn care about the Charity Challenge. This year, it’s us versus Kenny G*—who will donate more to Northwest Harvest? Will it be the world's most brilliant, wittiest, greatest-looking online community, which is also possessed of myriad talents far above and beyond Smooth Jazz™? Or will it be the guy in the Guinness Book of World Records for playing the longest note ever recorded on a saxophone? SLOG IS BETTER THAN CIRCULAR BREATHING.

From now through December 24th, we'll be tracking our charitable kicking of Kenny’s behind right here on Slog. Give to Northwest Harvest right now—whatever amount you can afford—then forward us your receipt and your commenter handle, and we'll give you a tag that says SLOG CHARITY CHALLENGE ALL-STAR. There will also be fabulous prizes! Because you are an all-star for helping.

Let’s get started! Give now!

* It's true—no period after the G for ol' Ken. WTF? SLOG WILL NOT STAND FOR MISUSE OF PUNCTUATION.
