I’m still in a complete state of shock
Because we actually met our goal
And people are gonna judge for it, but thanks to 70 people that wanted to help, we actually made $1000 in 2 days and me and Chase get to go to the PMP event in LA and stay out there for a week
I can’t even choose the right words to express my thanks because I feel like it’ll never be enough and I know there are a few people out there that are gonna have negative outlooks on me and Chase for it, but the thing you gotta understand about me going into this is from the instant this idea was even created, I expected it to fail. I went into this thing really only wanting battles since I was gonna stream this weekend either way, and I was almost 100% positive that this attempt to go was gonna be a huge fucking flop - but that close to the tournament, the least it was worth was a shot. I decided fuck it, we’ll see what happens and at the least I’ll HOPEFULLY have good stuff to narrate for later.
We hit 101% of our goal before we even got through 75% of our scheduled time.
The thing I actually feel really bad about though is when the word charity was tossed around. This wasn’t that kind of event at all and I don’t know if I gave that impression but I certainly didn’t mean to. In an effort to slap a turnaround on it though since we can’t ballpark costs too reliably at this time, any unused contributions will be forwarded to Child’s Play.
I guess at the end of the day, me and Chase were just two dudes that took a chance by reaching out to the community and it worked.
I’m really flattered and embarrassed and I really don’t know what to say. This weekend really restored my faith in the community and basically reassured me that the good people will ALWAYS outweigh the asshats in nearly any situation.
To anyone reading this - from the viewers that even just came out for a second to the 4 people that dropped $100 and EVERYONE else in between, thank you sincerely and dearly. You are all amazing people for making this outcome a possibility, even though I still feel like I’ll never be deserving enough or able to show my gratitude enough at all.
