Hey fellow editors,

Because cancer is a massive pain in the ass, I've teamed up with PrincessMareep to up the charitable impact we can have with the competition. I will donate $2 to the same charity for every entry received, up to $200. My employer will match me, so that's really $400 extra. So let's pump up the speed and kick cancer's butt!

And obviously, I'm not entering. PrincessMareep will let me know the total entries, I'll send her my receipts to verify amounts, and the total will likely be announced by her because it's her awesome idea.

So altogether that's $5 per entry! Bring it on!
