It’s just a $10 buyin with half of the proceeds going to the prize pool and the other half going directly to support the charity. The charity is run by Scott Diamond (@DeputySD) and it’s main purpose is to help the families of police officers who have given the ultimate sacrifice while protecting their communities.

Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon Running NOW

The Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon is underway and will go through midnight tomorrow. With all due respect to my second favorite charity (, the Jimmy Fund will always be my favorite and is a place I will always find time and ways to donate.

Last year, the Jimmy Fund Radio Telethon raised $4.5 million bringing the total since 2002 to $21 million in donations during this annual event. The goal this year is to raise $5 million dollars that will be used in the fight against cancer. Since 1948 the Jimmy Fund has supported the fight against cancer in children and adults at Bostons Dana-Farber Cancer Institute.

You can listen live to the telethon over at You can donate online, or text “KCANCER” to 20222 to donate $10.

Please join me today or tomorrow in making a contribution to this great charity and even greater cause. No amount is too small to give. A quote from my favorite and most often referenced Jimmy Fund video:

“You really don’t have to donate that much, you just gotta give, a little. A little in abundance, is alot.”

My Tear-Jerker of the Day

Just heard that a good friend of mine, Paul Ellis (@coolwhipflea), lost a close family friend to cancer early this morning. His name was Gabriel. The worst part, he was just 3 weeks shy of his 8th birthday. You can make a donation directly to Caring Bridge in tribute to Gabriel.

F*ck Cancer.

While we are on the topic, here is my favorite video to get you in the charitable mood:

My charity of choice to assist in the fight against cancer is The Jimmy Fund. Consider making a donation. Or please make a donation to your charity of choice.

All I Want for Christmas in 2009…

All I Want for Christmas in 2009 is for YOU to consider making a donation to a charitable foundation. Give what ever you can, $1, $5, $10, etc. There is no such thing as a donation “too small”.
