Thank You for Helping us Give $1,000 to Harvey Victims

Published

Last week, I put out the Bat Signal for a bit of a hare-brained idea regarding Pistol Partners — what we call our PFB contributors — and helping out with Hurrican Harvey. I said that if we got to 300 contributors by the end of last week, we would give $1,000 to help with relief efforts in Houston (you can contribute here, by the way). We were going to give $500 regardless, but I thought it would be fun to double that up if possible.

On Sunday, right before Texas A&M went Full Aggie, we hit 300.

So here it is, $1,000 to Samaritan’s Purse as they go and help out those displaced and affected by the Hurricane.

So I wanted to say thank you. I was incredibly inspired by what Oklahoma State basketball coach Mike Boynton did last week in GIA, and though $1,000 is not a lot of money, it’s still something. It’s something we would not have been able to contribute two years ago or even a year ago.

So thank you for reading and listening and tweeting and commenting (usually) — you guys make this blog go ’round both with your attention and now with your money. We don’t take that lightly, and we are grateful for it. It’s a heck of a thing for those of us who work here to get to wake up and do this every day.

Go Pokes, and thank you again for your generosity.
