Make me do stupid things. For a good cause.

Hi. I'm Will.

Lots of people donated to Mike Beasley's iOS7 Charity Water campaign.

(http://www.indiegogo.com/projects/make-mike-update-to-ios-7-for-charity)

I think it's stupid, but I'll also happily make my life hell for charity. So here goes.

$100 [PROBLEMS (see below)] - I will listen to an entire One Direction album. All of it. Start to back. I'll film it too.

UPDATE: So I listened to an entire 1D album. The whole thing. One sitting.

And Photo Booth screwed up the audio/video sync.

:(

$200 [DONE - UPLOADING TOMORROW] - I will listen to an entire Taylor Swift album. All of it. Start to back. I'll film it too.

$500 [DONE] - I will watch a whole episode of My Little Pony. I'll let Streza pick which episode. I'll film my reactions.

$750 [DONE] - I will record an audiobook of me reading a MLP fan-fiction (up to an hour).

$900 [January 25th - January 31st] - I will use only Google+ for a week. Basically, I'll talk to myself.

$1,000 [January 25th - January 31st] - I will use Windows (and Microsoft-type) products for an entire week. I'll use a PC for all work. If someone wants to send me a Windows Phone, I'll use that instead of my iPhone.

$1,250 [Tonight] - I will watch an entire season of Honey Boo Boo. In one sitting. And (of course) livestream it.

$1,500 - I will change my system font to Comic Sans for a week. I hate myself for agreeing to do this.

$2,000 - I will write a Twitter client in Ruby/RoR. And livestream it. For those unaware, I dislike RoR and despise the Twitter API. So, ya know. Fun times for all.

$5,000 - I will spend 10 hours watching My Little Pony. I will do a livestream of these 10 hours. Please no.

$10,000 - I will use only a Google G1 for a week. The original Android phone. It literally takes 60 seconds to open the messaging app.

$50,000 - I'll put my Twitter username up for auction. All of the proceeds from that auction will also go to Charity: Water.

This campaign brought clean water to Muk Da Community, Cambodia.

Diseases from unsafe water and lack of basic sanitation kill more people every year than all forms of violence, including war. Your donation will help change that.
