Instead of the free booze, drugs, compliments, and ultimately the shame of a 32nd birthday party as I understand it, I ask that you give a dollar, a penny, a yen, pound, or sheckel to feed the hungry. If that doesn't do it for you, fuck it, just drop $10 because you'd probably squander it anyways.
We've enjoyed a tremendous amount of success in our industry lately, and it's hard to believe that a very significant part of the world will never understand the luxury of running water at home...if they even have a home. I want $3200 for my 32nd birthday. Give it to me via the orange button.
Let's build some water wells, buy some rice, and give a foot where we would have most likely only given an inch. The benificiary of this drive is Action Against Hunger and they can't stop getting awards for how effective they are at getting relief to those who need it the most...quickly. Look them up on charitywatch.org and decide for yourself.
