Joe and Alex are both contributing in a Dungeons and Dragons pledge event fundraiser, where you choose a player to donate money to, so they can have more gold (and with more gold, of course, they have a better chance of winning, so your pledge directly affects their game).
All the money is for a good cause, specifically 826NYC, which is:
a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting students ages 6-18 with their creative and expository writing skills, and to helping teachers inspire their students to write. Our services are structured around our belief that great leaps in learning can happen with one-on-one attention and that strong writing skills are fundamental to future success. With this in mind we provide drop-in tutoring, field trips, after-school workshops, in-schools tutoring, help for English language learners, and assistance with student publications. All of our free programs are challenging and enjoyable, and ultimately strengthen each student's power to express ideas effectively, creatively, confidently, and in his or her individual voice.
So if you want to support Joe or Alex (or any of the contestants), click the above link to learn how! As of the last time I checked, Joe had raised $250 to Alex's $50. Y'all can't leave that disparity stand!!!
