Ok, not really. However, I am playing volleyball for charity, and I would love to harness the power of the interwebz to raise money for the cause. ALL DONATIONS GO 100% TO THE CHARITY. NOTHING GOES TO ME, MY TEAM, EXPENSES, EQUIPMENT, OR ANYTHING ELSE. Every February for the past 8 years, I have played in a charity volleyball tournament for the Putnam Lions Club in Connecticut. I have captained my own team for the past 7 years. Every year, we either win or come in second place. There is a cash prize for the 1st and 2nd place teams, but we always give it back to the charity. We get t-shirts, hot dogs and gatorade for playing, but honestly, I'm just happy to get a day of volleyball in the dead of winter up here. Then, I can be really sore on Superbowl Sunday and drink the pain away. If you'd like to donate, that would be great. Even $1 helps these guys out. Last year, they raised close to $20,000. I would appreciate donations in check form payable to the Putnam Lions Club that way there is no question where your money is going (hey, in this day and age of scammers, you can never be too careful), but for convenience sake, you can paypal donations to firstname.lastname@example.org. If you'd like to donate and want to mail a check, PM me for my mailing address. The tournament is Saturday, February 5th, so any donations need to be in by then. Here's an article from the 2008 tournament, when my team won the B division. Of course, we were "The Ball Busters", but they wouldn't print that in the paper. Attached is a list of charities the Lions gives the money to. Thanks in advance everyone!
