So Tumblr CEO, occasional model, and all-around-nice-guy David Karp has passed down word that we can "use him in any way" to help with the fundraiser. So here's what we're gonna do:— with Tia Maja and Jett Electra Atkinson.
NYC HIGH SCHOOL STUDENTS:
Form a team of 3 to 5 people. Wash cars, walk dogs, sell cupcakes, do what needs to be done. Then donate as a team by the end of the fundraiser. TOP THREE TEAMS will get ...
1) A group HONY portrait, shared on the blog
2) Copies of that portrait, signed by me
3) A tour of Tumblr HQ
4) David and I will take you out to lunch
At lunch we will discuss highly guarded secrets of the internet. (Then when the check comes, we will all look at David awkwardly and hope he picks up the tab.) You never know-- maybe only three teams will enter. You can win this. If you're in middle school, and think you can take on the high schoolers, be my guest. If you go to school nearby, and can get to New York, be my guest.
May the odds be ever in your favor.
Make your donation by the end of the fundraiser:
