How much did Bears Twitter raise for charity this week?

As many of us know, Twitter can become a toxic place. This season, I’ve decided to try and create 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 eight, Justin Fields was 19-27 for 175 yards with 1 TDs and 1 INTs. Twitter user @SoldierFieldblg guessed 16-25 for 175yards with 1 TD and 1 INT. Wow, was that almost spot on! Bears Twitter raised $81 last week (we need it higher, that’s why you have to participate!). SoldierFieldblg chose Insulin for Life If you would like to donate, just follow the link 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!

I’ve decided to add a caveat each week that I will at least double the donation with a Chicago Bears victory!

In addition this week, I’m throwing an additional donation in:

That’s right, $100 to help distribute COVID vaccines to those in need if Fields plays better than Love (I’m not sure what transpired this week with the Packers that motivated me to do this, but something felt right about it).

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 eight weeks: $1,625
