Seed Money

Then it got really awesome -- Claire Danes herself, who's raised a goodly chunk of money for Donors Choose her own self, got wind of the Tomato Nation challenge, and donated prizes to the contest, and $7,500 of her own money to the challenge goal.

With a little help from the former Angela Chase, Tomato Nation readers smithereened that benchmark, raising not just forty but more than a hundred thousand dollars in under a month -- thus, the tomato costume, and the Angela dance, which you can see by clicking through to this entry. It is, alas, truncated, because I couldn't do the dance correctly without kicking some unsuspecting passersby in the slats. Tempting, but I could do without an assault conviction.

TWoP readers have shown equally generous instincts over the last eight years, raising tons of money for various causes through the Tubey's Kids auctions, which is something my co-founders and I have always felt proud of. Not that we had much to do with it -- it was all you guys -- but we were honored that the kinds of readers who felt strongly about making a difference and helping others, and about whether David Boreanaz should go on a freakin' diet, would spend their time on TWoP.

TV brought me to the internet; the internet put me in a big foam tomato. It's all a circle of love. Thank you for completing it.
