Canucks for Kids Telethon: A Blogger’s Challenge

During the Canucks for Kids telethon last year, a bunch of us Canucks bloggers pledged to donate to the cause for every new Twitter follower we received that night.

With this year’s Canucks for Kids telethon going on tonight, Brian from Canucks Corner laid down the gauntlet again and challenged all Canucks bloggers to donate 10 cents for every new Twitter follower.

In the famous words of Barney Stinson, “Challenge Accepted!”

On behalf of CHB, I, Christopher Golden aka @lyteforce, pledge to donate 10 cents for every new Twitter follower I get between puck drop and game end. I have 1,132 followers at the moment; I’ll tweet an exact count just prior to puck drop.

Follow me, people. It’s for the kids.


To make a donation to this great cause, you can go to the Canucks for Kids Telethon online donation page.



We changed the rules part-way through the challenge and I donated $64 to Canuck Place – $1 for each of my new followers and $20 for the Canucks’ empty net goal. Thank you to everyone for playing along.

    I’m trying to follow @lyteforce, but the Twitter FailWhale is getting in the way (as in, it keeps giving me over-capacity errors).

    Don’t follow him until after puck drop if you want it to count towards a donation for Canucks for Kids!

    thanks. For some reason I mis-read it as “new followers between now and puck drop”. So it looks like the FailWhale did me a favour 🙂

  4. Westcoast_belle has it right – follow me during the game to ensure the money adds up!
