What started as probably a joke has snowballed into an all out online charity drive. Two days ago some of the folks on 4chan’s /mlp/ decided to hold a canned food drive at the upcoming Nightmare Nights Dallas. With the backing of the convention themselves the charity drive turned online and started collecting money. All proceeds both monetary and what is donated by the attendees of NMND will go to the North Texas Food Bank.
Currently the bar has been set at $2,000 dollars and current totals are roughly at $1,710 (12:30am et). There is also talk about raising the bar to $3,000.
Either way, at least 5,000 people will get some much needed food in this harsh economical climate.
