As many of us know, Twitter can become a toxic place. Over the last few years, the debates over Mitch Trubisky alone are enough to make your head spin. 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 four, Justin Fields was 11-17 for 209 yards with 0 TDs and 1 INT (and a fumble). Sameer Deshmukh (Twitter handle @sameer5580) was the closest with a 17-23, 205 yards 1 TD, 1 INT, 1 fumble guess. Bears Twitter raised $91 last week towards Allen Robinson’s Within Reach Foundation! If you would like to donate, you can click here to donate. 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!

With this game being in Las Vegas, we decided to raise the stakes! Add in a final score and if anyone not the winner, just anyone predicts the exact final score, we will double the donation 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 four weeks: $602
