It’s time to dust off those bee beard jokes and participate in #Tweet4Meat where we to tell stupid jokes to raise money for sustainable agriculture. Last year, we raised nearly $3,500 for Heifer International under the hashtag #Tweet4Meat and it would be absolutely amazing if we could top that this year.
Tweet4Meat is a simple, really. All year long, we tell jokes, stories and generally try to entertain folks with the strange and odd things that go through our heads each day. For one week out of the year, we try to focus a little bit of that energy to both make people laugh and get them to open their wallets to make a donation to a wonderful international organization that helps people to who never get complain that the vending machine is out of their favorite potato chips. I’d encourage everyone to check our Heifer International’s website to learn more information about this organization.
So what the hell do you want, Joel?
That’s easy. Between December 12 and 19, we want you to tell jokes. Not even a lot of them. Just a few. Here’s the rub, as part of that, use the hashtag #Tweet4Meat and encourage people to donate to Heifer International. The wonderful JuicyMorsel and I will be setting up a donation site this weekend to manage our efforts. Of course, you could go hog-wild and sell a Snuggy photo like gneicco or offer to follow people in return like Smethanie and Shariv67 or any myriad of wacky things. Your choice, but we would all appreciate your help—not as much as the people who will benefit from the money we raise.
More information will be coming throughout the weekend and leading up to next Wednesday. For now, shoot me a message on some social media platform to let me know you want to help raise money. If that’s too hard, let JuicyMorsel know. We’ll add you to the list of participants.
Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go write some jokes like “you can lead a horse to water but can’t make him glue.” Also, I need to furiously check this post for missed typos.
