Charity Bowl Update: Over $20,000 Raised

May 16, 2008

If you recall, earlier this week I implored you to give for the EDSBS/Fanblogs.com Charity Bowl. It was a donation drive for cyclone, tornado, and earthquake relief.

I am pleased to report that between Monday morning and 8 pm EDT Wednesday night that the donation total was $20,176. That’s phenomenal, considering it was mainly spearheaded by college football blogs and we are now in the depths of the off season.

The winning school was Michigan, coming through with $7,260. It was by far the most and more than the next 6 schools combined. Thanks to the Wolverines for stepping up. Ohio State finished second (natch), with $2,550. Florida finished a respectable third with $1,820.

This really makes me hope that we try this again during the season when readership is at its highest. If we can raised $20,000 in three days while over 100 days from the start of the season, there’s no telling what we could do in the Fall.
