A Shameless Plug- And an appeal to your deeply seated guilt

Hey guys,

My son, Joshua, is participating in a fundraiser for his school. The funds will go towards the construction of the Lion’s Lair 2.0 Playground, which is not only a school playground, but a community one, as well. I actually helped build the original Lion’s Lair when I was in 9th grade, so it is neat that Josh gets a similar opportunity now. The original Lion’s Lair was an awesome community project that benefited a great many people over the years, but unfortunately it eventually got too old to be safe. The new one will be bigger, better and hopefully, even more future proof. To that end, Joshua is selling Spirit Cups – Drinking Cups and Travel Mugs sporting the Team of your choice from the NFL, NHL, MLB, Collegiate and Military organizations. Joshua’s goal is to exceed 100 items so that he can win an Amazon Gift Card, which he’ll use to purchase books(Probably MineCraft related). Please consider purchasing a cup to help towards his goal. If you can’t purchase, we understand. You can still help by sharing the link so that maybe friends and family can help. Anything ordered will be shipped directly to you, but please let us know, as Josh will record a personal thank you message that he will send to you via YouTube. Thank you and happy shopping!

But wait, Dan, didn’t you say you would appeal to my guilt?  Yes.  Yes I did.  Today is game day and quite clearly you do not have enough sports related merchandise in your house to be considered a true fan.  Shame on you.  Now make amends by ordering up a 4 pack and doing some good in the world.  Not to mention you’ll no longer be the laughing stock of the block.
