How much money did Bears Twitter raise this week?

As many of us know, Twitter can become a toxic place. This season, I’ve decided to try and make some positive waves with Bears Twitter and hopefully make it a better place.

Each week, I will send out a tweet (@ZimmermanSXM) asking for guesses for the Chicago Bears’ QB1’s stats for that game. For each guess received, I will donate $1 to a given certified charity that week, up to $200. The person that comes closest to guessing QB1’s stats will have the donation in their name to the charity of their choice.

In week six, Justin Fields was 16-27 for 174 yards with 1 TDs and 1 INT. We had a tie! @TrevorDubois guessed 18-28 for 172 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. @Berczynski guessed 15 for 23 for 174 yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. Bears Twitter raised $294 last week. Half of it went to Lurie’s Children’s Hospital and the other half to the Anthony Rizzo Family Foundation. If you would like to donate, just follow the links embedded. Reply to the tweet below with your proof of donation and we will add it to the total!

I plan to continue these donations each week based on the amount of guesses received, pretty simple way to do your part and help out some great causes.

Would you like to raise money this week? Reply to the tweet below with your guess on QB1’s stat line and raise some money for the charity of your choice!

The Chicago Bears have a tall order this week against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers so if the Bears pull off the upset, we will triple the donation! We could raise $600 this week!

I encourage any Bears fans that have a dollar to spare to also donate. Share your donation with me and I will add it to the total raised each week. Can we raise $5,000 for charity? Bears Twitter, let’s unite and help out so many great causes out there!

Money raised through five weeks: $1,074
