I work with a great group of people and they are all extremely supportive of Nations Cry and my involvement in the organization. For a few of the individuals that I work with, this support translates into any possible excuse to make a donation.
A few months back there was a small birthday celebration at work for myself and few colleagues. Myself and the other birthday boys received a large cupcake and a card signed by everyone in the office. The cupcake was large (and I mean large) and before long I was challenged to eat it in under two minutes (this kind of thing often happens in the office where I work). The kicker was that if I pulled it off, a donation for $200 would be made to Nations Cry. A few other colleagues jumped on board, for some reason thinking that watching me eat a giant cupcake as fast as I could would be quite entertaining, and the states got as high as $650!
The pressure was on. I will let the photo below fill you in on the outcome:
