You really think you’re endearing yourself to me, Mr. Snyder? Or should I say Mr. Grimaldi? Yeah, God bless the internet. Your family’s reputation precedes you, though I got to say you’re beginning to do it justice. First you offer money, and if that doesn’t work, you move on to blackmail and bullying.

Ho hum. Another day, another cool two grand raised for charity (in about 36 hours, no less). For a warm-fuzzy feel-good view of this fandom, you can check out Jenny Sheffer Stevens’s God’s Love We Deliver donation page.  The $2,000 raised by Jenny and Eric puts them at number 9 on the list of individual runners in this weekend’s event (no, I’m not competitive!).

The ESS crew’s Colleen reports via Facebook and the forum, that Eric’s response to hearing about the skyrocketing donations was, “Cool. Thanks for putting it out there. It’s a great charity… I’ll run faster now.”

Post-race, Colleen added: “Eric and Jenny are floored by the support of all they do and so appreciative. Eric finished in under 30 minutes and Jenny in just over 40. Great job for a great cause.”

Organizers confirm that the sponsor page will remain open until December.

Now, off to donate to my own pet charities before the taxman cometh….
