Yesterday we made our way to NRDC’s New York office on 20th and 6th with a giant check in hand, and no appointment.
We were met with suspicion by the building management guy who phoned upstairs to tell someone that “we got a coupla guys down here…bribers. Got a big check.”
Once we made it upstairs, we were greeted by Jenny Powers, National Media Director, who told us that she, and everyone at the NRDC, had been following Charity Bribes and were overjoyed to hear about the successful bribe.
Of course, nonexistent is the bank that accepts giant checks (presumably only with a giant deposit slip) so this was not the end. We realized a few days ago that we had not yet ordered real, comparatively tiny, checks for this purpose, so we ended up wiring the money. The NRDC received it today, May 24th. Thank you again to everyone who contributed to this bribe. And thank you Larry David!
We would really appreciate contributions to our next bribe: get Morgan Freeman to narrate user-submitted animal videos. Even a few dollars makes a big difference. Pledge here charitybribes.org
