You buy drinks. GnR raises funds.

I'm just a silly boy, but the GnR fundraiser coming up Monday at the Tube seems like genius to me.

Here's how it works:

  1. You go to the Tube.
  2. You buy drinks and such.
  3. GnR raises funds.

The hitch here is that #3 only works at the Tube (18 NW 3rd Ave), and it only works on Monday 21 September 2009.

But you don't have to do anything to make (3) happen except complete (1) and (2). I kid you not. You just (1) go to the Tube (this step is very important) and (2) buy drinks. That's it.

Magical really.

I can't think of a better fundraising idea since my fraternity at FNU convinced the Greek Counsel to let us drink beer for charity.

I don't know if you understand, so let me lay it out for you: We were going to drink beer anyway, and then we got to do it for charity.

You are probably going to be buying drinks sometime in the near future anyway. (Or snacks. That works too.) If you do that at the Tube on Monday night, you'll be doing it for charity (GnR).

The only way this could be easier is if the GnRs brought the drinks and snacks to you on your porch in return for your donation.

(Hey ... could we do that next time? And really, now that I'm thinking about it, the easiest thing to do would be for you to just give money to GnR. And I'm sure they'd have no problem with that. Really. I don't think I even need to ask them.)

So once more, all you need to do is (1) go to the Tube (this really is essential) and (2) buy drinks.

You don't need to talk to the GnRs there (though you can). You don't need to stay very long (though you should). You don't even need to blush when they gush their thanks to you (though they will). None of that is required.

Now I understand some of you are saying, "But I have no plans to buy drinks. Ever."

That's fine. Because you can buy yummy things to eat at the Tube too.

And on top of that, the Genius Fundraising Plan™ doesn't require that you buy the drinks (or snacks) for yourself. No. You can buy drinks (or snacks) for anyone.


You don't want to buy drinks (or snacks) for yourself? No problem. You can buy drinks (or snacks) for the GnRs. They'll thank you even more!

And, coincidentally, it's Rocket Mean's birthday. She's 21! So you've got a perfect excuse to buy drinks (or snacks) for her. And since her 21st birthday only comes around once a year, you'll have to wait a whole year for such an opportunity again. That's a chance you really shouldn't miss: you get to buy Mean a drink (or snack, or several drinks, or snacks) for her birthday and for charity!

Oh, what do the GnRs need to raise money for? Rainbow socks mostly. That's what I've heard anyway.

So let's go over this one more time because it really is simple (and genius) and you'll be really embarassed if you screw this up:

  1. You go to the Tube.
  2. You buy drinks (or snacks).
  3. GnR gets money.

Why would you not do this?

And what would you rollergirls like to drink (or eat)?



  1. Hey Grant - Heard via GnR that yer looking for a GnR type derby name...if you still are, I like Duff McKegstand myself! Diggin the blog!

  2. I'm not going to tell you what I like to eat....that's private. But I certainly won't turn down any drinks that adoring fans would like buy for me ;)

  3. What time this thing kicking off?
