I do hearby challenge all the good folks around the world who tune into dead.net to donate $18,ooo dollars to The Rex Foundation in memory of Jerry by years end. I will start us off with a $100 donation. Tell us what you can donate here or if you wish to remain anonymous make sure to include a note when you make your donation saying "dead.net challenge, anonymous donor " and hopefully those dollar amounts can be posted too. We can do this! Yes we can! Yes we can! Magical miracles to all.
