Bartek Sobieszczuk, or ‘Bart’ to those in the know, is taking part in a fundraiser to live off only rations for a week in order to raise money for Syrian refugees.
I got to thinking about how I could help out. I’m not rolling in dough, no sir, and a lot of my spare change has gone his way but that’s not quite enough. Well, Bart has helped me to help him help others.
I’ve agreed to two things:
- Any and all profits from any and all sales of Tedrick Gritswell from today (Tuesday, 20th of June) to Saturday (24th of June) will go straight to Bart’s fund.
- On Friday I will do as he is doing and subsist solely off 600g of rice for the day. I think I also get to have a tea-bag. Maybe.
It’s not much, I know, but it means that I can at least contribute something more than a fistful of dollars and, as he put it, “They (you guys) get a great read and contribute to a worthy charity at the same time!”
Sounds about right to me.
Of course, if you wanted to donate directly, go right ahead:
That’s the link for his fundraising efforts. It’ll tell you more about it than I can. Go and give it a visit.
