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 (doubled to $400 if Bears win). 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 thirteen, Andy Dalton was 26-41 for 229 yards with 2 TDs and 4 INTs (ouch!). Twitter user (and Windy City Gridiron’s own) @RobertkSchmitz guessed 28-40 for 222 yards with 1 TD and 2 INTs. A great guess! Bears Twitter raised $104 this past week. Robert chose Mental Health America! 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. I’ve also decided to make it easy, if you don’t want to guess but want to help, just like the tweet and it counts!

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! But, it’s Packers week so if the Bears win, we are going to TRIPLE the donation!

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 thirteen weeks: $3,291
