Well, You Did It: I’m Up to 34 Hours Straight of Trade Deadline Coverage … and Counting!

Chicago Cubs

The trade rumors and activity are picking up steam. Clearly. I love it. We’ve had a great start to trade season as baseball fans, and it figures to continue right up until the end of the month.

So the Trade Deadline Blogathon is gonna be great, my friends!

I have offered to blog here at BN and on social media at the July 31 Trade Deadline for 24 straight hours – no breaks, no sleep, no rest – but if you fine folks donate more than $6,000 to Make-A-Wish (the cost of sponsoring a child’s wish), I said I’d bump that up 10 hours to 34 straight hours. AND YOU DID IT! As of this writing, you’ve donated almost $6,600 to Make-A-Wish, and I’m on the hook for 34 straight hours!

And from here, I’ll tack on another hour for every $1,000 we can raise – up to 40 hours straight. That means in just $400, I have to add another hour of coverage! Don’t you want to see me go crazy on July 30 and 31 for 40 straight hours? Donate to Make-A-Wish here! – just click on “donate now”. It all goes straight to Make-A-Wish in service of their mission to grant the wishes of children with life-threatening medical conditions to enrich the human experience with hope, strength and joy.
