  • RESULTS of the IntenseMuscle.com Holiday donation drive

    Ok, the results of the donation drive are in and I sat here for a minute before posting this feeling incredibly proud of the generosity of the IntenseMuscle.com members, friends and family. Donations came in from all over the world including New Zealand, Australia, Jamaica, Canada, the UK and all over the US.

    I know I say this a lot but the members here are different than members of most boards. I knew that there were people here who could and would help out but even I was floored by the end result.

    Our total donations earlier tonight topped out at $4855 with a commitment from Dylan Armbrust of Armbrust Pro Gym here in Denver for $50.

    I received a donation earlier today from a friend that I didn't bother to hit up and flat out ask him for a donation because he gets hit all the time for things like this. When we started the donation drive a couple weeks ago he retweeted a tweet of mine about the donation drive and I appreciated that.

    Today, he saw me tweet that we were closing in on our goal and we were going to still be about $200 short. He hit me with a message saying he had just sent a payment of $200. With all of the tweets that he gets every day from fans and answering hundreds of questions on twitter, Phil Heath took the time to hit me up and help out.

    So, that puts our ending total of donations at midnight Sunday night at: $5055. No shit, we beat our goal by $55 and Mr Olympia helped put us over the top. How awesome is that??

    Even though we have already donated the t-shirts, 2 $200 visa gift cards for raffle and I am personally sending out 5lb TEAM SKIP blend jugs (and shipping), our family still wants to donate another $300, as well. That brings the total donations to: $5355.

    I will be posting the winners of the 2 visa gift cards shortly. I am putting each donor's name that donated $50 or more in a protein jug and my sick 7 year old who is still up will pick 2 names out of the jug and those 2 will be the winners. They can take their $200 in the form of a visa gift card, paypal payment or they can turn that donation right back into the donation total pushing the total even higher. The people that have donated have already been generous so please don't feel like you have to donate the gift cards back because you absolutely do not.

    Again, I just want to be clear that I am very proud of this community and I will enjoy walking into the Tennyson Center and presenting them with the check from IntenseMuscle.com, representing the generosity and selflessness of all of the members, family and friends. Please thank any of your friends or family for me, for helping out, as well.

    Thank you very much to everyone that gave. I want to do this again next year and I promise to be more organized. To the people that were offended by my emails or considered them spam, kiss my ass. Next year I will spam your silly asses even more. It's for a good cause so I won't feel badly not even for one minute.

    EDIT:
    The raffle winners of the 2 Visa gift cards for $200 each are:
    ALEX JUDSON
    BIG CHEF


    Please contact me asap and congratulations!!!

        Every year I always give extra to charity for the holidays. This year I rolled up the spread out cash to do the majority of it here. Made me smile like a kid.

              Great job Skip and all those that donated. I'm glad to have helped in a small way, and what an honor that Mr Olympia put the donations over the top.

              Merry Christmas to all!!!

                Awesome work, Skip and everyone else. Much respect, love, a Merry Christmas and a fantastic 2012 to everyone who helped, and those who wish they could have helped but truly were unable to do so.
