Hi friends and family,
Like everyone else who escaped Sandy unharmed, we wanted to find a way to help out those in NYC who weren't as lucky. So here's our proposal: for every dollar you donate to Sandy relief, we'll do one Friendship Pushup (take a look at the video to the left). We're each putting up fifty bucks, so we're starting with 100 pushups. If our friends and family donate an additional 900, then we'll do a thousand. Easy math. It might take all day*, but we promise that every dollar will be matched by a pushup.
So donate between now and midnight next Friday. We'll get started at 10am on Saturday, November 10. To keep us honest, we'll have a friend document our progress and updates (in pics and videos—we'll try to set up streaming video if we're smart enough) and we'll be doing them in front of a chalkboard that will have our progress toward our goal marked.
*One caveat: if by some amazing miracle, you guys donate more than a thousand dollars, we'll do them over two days next weekend. We're not Bronson. And if we get more than $1,500, we'll recruit some buddies to tagteam our way to the total.
