The First Annual KsK Kares Charity Drive


As you know, this site is used mostly for evil purposes. And we have every intention of keeping it that way. But, since this is the opening week of the NFL, we can’t help but be downright cheery about our good fortune. So, it would seem appropriate that we make a small, fairly pathetic effort to spread that good fortune around to those in need. I have no confidence that this endeavor will help balance out our karma. It’s one dollar off a trillion dollar pile of ill will. But it’ll at least give me the illusion that I’m doing something good, and that’s all that matters.

And so today, the very same day Jerry Lewis wheels out his little retards to win your heart over, we’re holding our first ever KsK Kares Charity Drive. At the end of each post this week, we’ll be linking to an online donation form for Fisher House, an organization that helps disabled veterans and their families. Fisher House got a 4-star charity rating (out of four!) from independent evaluators, and you can elect to have 100% of the money you donate go directly to veteran care, and not overhead. Fucking overhead.

Your donation is also tax deductible. Which means you don’t have to feel like a complete bleeding heart pussy when you give. Best of all, giving to Fisher House will give you a smug sense of self-satisfaction that, I assure you, is well worth every penny. You can even mention it in passing to a dinner date. She’ll think that you’re not only kind, but also surprisingly modest about just how kind you are. That’s worth at least a handjob, according to a Neil Strauss manual I recently purchased.

The link to directly donate is right here. And you can read more about FH here. I’m giving $20, a fair price for being able to be so selfish about my selflessness. You’ll see this link at the end of each post this week. Otherwise, it’s dick jokes as usual around here. Tally ho!

it is my true hope that my 20 dollar offering brings a welcome addition to some gi's porn stash.
fisher house does that, right? couldn't find that specific link.

It's spelled Kharity, we've been over this before.

janie said...

Wow, I'm impressed by this new caring KSK. Being English, I feel it may be innapropriate to help with your effort in this particular case but I applaud you nonetheless especially cos my dad was a soldier.

Meanwhile we'll continue to get the fuck out of Basra and leave you all to it!

janie said...

Of course, I meant inappropriate - I know how to spell...I had an English educayshun.

Unsilent Majority said...

English is a nationality or a language...pick one and move on.

Captain Caveman said...

Excellent point, Janie. Helping people from other countries is inappropriate. That's why Africa can go fuck itself.

/Give generously or else Ufford will come to your house and berate you for being ungrateful don't think he won't do it

Suss said...

Are Deadpoint contributions tax-deductible? Ah hell. +10 FH

deafjeff said...

Actually, we Americans could be real pricks and say fuck you to the rest of the world. Let's see how long a lot of our "allies" last without us. Don't give me shit about we need them for blah, blah,blah. With all of our forces home, I would feel very safe.
But fuck all that!
It is football season!

I'll donate because if it wasn't for Fisher House, there would have never been a Paul Wall or Mike Jones.

Can I just put a fiver in Caveman's thong?

mnak said...

BDD, really appreciate the link - I'm a everyday reader and an active duty guy with time in Iraq, so thanks for pointing guys towards Fisher House. Those future handjobs are for a worthy cause.

Eat it, Paypal.

janie said...

Oh God - you've made me feel bad now! All I meant was that it would feel a bit weird for me to give to a charity for another country's vets - I'm sure you'd feel the same if it was the British Legion or something. I think it's great what you're doing I really do. I'm just going to curl into a ball and die now.

Awful Chief said...

janie, at least you can curl up in a ball and die knowing your team beat Chelsea.

devang said...

KsK Kares Charity?

Careful now...NOIS may unleash a torrent of vitriol.

I'll throw in $20.

Awful Chief said...

i'll make sure to remember the Kellen Winslow Fund during CFC season

janie said...

@ awful chief

That was a fucking sweet victory. For once I didn't need to drink myself into oblivion after the final whistle.

Smello said...

I hope this doesn't create another perfect storm of smug...

lieutenant winslow said...

and here i was certain that the first annual ksk charity drive would be a fundraiser to buy unsilent a weekend with a half-black, half-asian hooker.

edward said...

I don't mean to be a cock, and I'm also English, which I see has been an issue here before, but...you need a charity to support disabled vets? Shouldn't the...you know...military be doing that?

Not that Britain has achieved four-star status on this front, but it's one of those things that I thought should be a given...you offer your life for your country, and if bits of you don't come back, you get taken care of for the rest of that life.

I'll kick in £10 (which I think at the moment is worth $100,000,000, depending on how the currency markets are doing this morning) because I feel ashamed our countries have failed our soldiers so badly. But I mean...fuck. It's wrong this even has to happen.

edward said...

Okay, they don't seem to like overseas credit cards. If someone wants to play middle man, I can post them a cheque in pounds sterling, and they can send it on. It takes about a month to clear though. Email me at ebwilford at hotmail if you're willing. And honest.

mike said...

Not to be really jingoistic, but will somebody accept Edward’s 10 euros, piss on them and return them to him. You could be like a 9/11 Giuliani…

Donald said...

Okay. I did $25. I feel smug but it looks like I'm going to have to do my own handjob.

Fuckers.
