There’s only a couple hours left in our Camp Quest fundraiser. Team Awesome is now ahead of Team PZ, mainly because PZ is a nefarious bastard and hoisted the white flag of defeat after Team Awesome had promised to embarrass themselves in a number of ways if they won.

But there’s exciting news! Todd Stiefel of the Stiefel Freethought Foundation has pledged to match all donations in the last two hours of the drives up to $5,000 per team! That means if you donate before the competition ends at 2pm EST (11 PST), your donation is effectively doubled! That’s everything above $11,681.33 for Beat PZ (aka Team Awesome) and $11,376.01 for Team PZ.

For those of you who have donated so far – thank you so much! It’s amazing that we’ve raised over $20,000. And if you haven’t donated yet, please consider donating now! All the money goes to Camp Quest, a summer camp for the children of non-religious parents that teaches critical thinking skills and science in addition to regular camp activities. And if you want a corny video where I awkwardly say what Camp Quest is about, watch this!


And honestly, I don’t care which team you donate to now, as it’ll be a hollow victory if we win now (goddamnit, PZ). If I were you, I’d aim for a perfect tie.

Though I kind of hate all of you who really, really, really want to see me make a fool out of myself learning how to ride a bike.
