Nickelback For charity

screen-shot-2014-11-19-at-7-33-56-pm

 

So how bad are Nickelback? imagine Eddie Vedder covering Daughtry (that is CHRIS Daughtry) songs… they are worse than that,  though taking shots at them is a little pointless. Listening to them to right this, they mix the smug drama of Live with the deep emotionalism of Creed.

But why should I insult them when everybody else does it so well. Of course,w e couldn’t be later on this but it is still news to me. For instance this charity case:

From Feb. 16-22 one man will listen to nothing but Nickelback 24/7. Do your part, and donate now.

About the Challenge:

For one week (Feb. 16-22), I’m going to listen to nothing but the entire Nickelback catalogue on a loop in an effort to raise $10,000* to build a well.

Please considering giving and making this dream a reality**.

UPDATE: INTERNATIONAL MEDIA ATTENTION

Obviously, as soon as the international press got wind of this unbelievable display of fortitude, they took notice. If there was ever a human interest story that could unite media outlets from all sides of idealogical spectrum, IT IS THIS. Thanks, international media, for spreading the word!

**IMPORTANT UPDATE (FEB. 12)

The white-hot passion for this endeavor continues to rage like an unstoppable fire. With three days until the beginning of the Nickelback Challenge, we have already surpassed the $10,000 mark. I’m blown away by everyone’s generosity! Because of these donations, the project will fully fund a well.

HOWEVER, it is critical that donations continue to pour in for the work of charity:water to raise my spirits as I explore the limits of mental fragility by subjecting my mind and soul to a weeklong Nickelback onslaught.

THANK YOU to everyone who has given and supported my dream to plum the depths of the human psyche as I embark on mankind’s greatest test of the powers of good and evil: In the battle between the music of Nickelback and the human spirit, who will emerge victorious?

In other words, there’s a lot at stake here.

*IMPORTANT UPDATE (FEB. 9)

It appears I’ve grossly misjudged people’s enthusiasm to see what 168 consecutive hours of Nickelback will do to a human being. In just two days, we’ve almost hit our initial goal of $5,000. That is totally insane and totally awesome! Everyone who has donated is my personal hero.

I’ve also got some new details, and found out to fully a fund a single well, we should aim for raising $10K. Either way, the campaign has already been a huge success thanks to everyone’s generosity! No matter how much we raise, 100% of funds will go to clean water projects in the field, and we will all receive GPS coordinates, photos and information about the communities impacted.

That said, I’m going to bump the overall to goal $10,000 and hopefully, we’ll easily exceed that. Thanks to everyone who has given so far and keeping this crazy dream of subjecting myself to a week of musical madness alive.

So far:

$22,004 Raised

733 people will get clean water
