Let Them Eat Cheese: Donate To EDSBS Charity Drive

I assume you also read EDSBS because, well, you're a smart person. On the off chance you do not, please take note that the gentlepeople over there kicked off The 2012 EDSBS Charity Drive this morning. The cause? Refugee Resettlement and Immigration Services of Atlanta...

They are a small agency doing the big work of making new Americans out of the world's refugees, and that is large business indeed. Unfortunately, that large business is done as much non-profit work is done: with shrinking budgets, no slack in demand, and the constant need for donations.

So why should you, Syracuse Orange fan, donate? The school that raises the most money will get a bevy of treats, including...

  • A reskin of EDSBS. Last year's featured a spectacular Bo Schembechler reskin. How bout a Syracuse skin featuring Ernie Davis on one side, Doug Marrone on the other and DOC Gross muscling his way in front of both of them?
  • An entire episode of Shutdown Fullback devoted to your school. In a good way, mind you (important to us, considering how likely a "good" episode devoted to Syracuse football would be otherwise).
  • A custom essay focused on doing nothing but denigrating the things the winning school finds deplorable. This could get fun...
  • If total donations exceed $30K, "we'll do...SOMETHING amazing. Like eating a wheel of cheese with the winning school's logo on it." Start thinking about what cheese best represents Syracuse...

You can donate online and there is a very specific way to do so. In the DESIGNATION line, please write the rivalry score of your choice in, and then denote your school and EDSBS donation. So, for example, you could donate $72 and write 49-23/Syracuse/EDSBS in the box, and then contribute.

Gates close at 5 p.m. on Friday, and the winner will be announced on the following Monday. DONATE. GO. NOW. RUN. Last year's tally was $26K, which is awesome, but it wasn't cheese-worthy. Make it cheese-worthy, Cuse.
