Day 1: 120 new donors!


Woo hoo!

As of 8AM pacific time on May 14th, we're already 12% of the way to our goal of 1000 new MaxFun donors. We'll update this thermometer once a day, but in the meantime you can check out our running count on the forum.

Of course if you haven't yet given, you should give now!

Derrick Comedy: Gink


Since we're on a Donald Glover kick lately, what with the standup segment and the interview, here's the latest from Don and his cohorts in Derrick Comedy.

Their feature film, Mystery Team, comes out on DVD May 25th, and is available for pre-order now. Comes with my recommendation - very funny, very charming.

MaxFunMarathon Tickets Now Available


There are 50 reservations available for the MaxFunMarathon, 4PM-midnight on May 28th. We will also be accepting walk-ins (the space can fit more than 50), but these reservations are your only perfect guarantee of entry. Tickets are $5, payable at the door. Make your reservations now.

A special offer.


If you donate $20, $100 or $200 per month today (Thursday, May 13th), I will call you to thank you.

MaxFunDrive 2010 Thank You Gifts


The best part of the Maximum Fun Drive is, of course, the thank you gifts. Here's a list of these amazing treasures just waiting to be claimed by new donors. These gifts typically go in the first few days of the pledge drive, so give quickly if you want them.

To get a thank you gift, pledge at twenty dollars or more a month, and indicate your top three preferences, in order, in the field provided on the "Donate" page. We can't promise you'll get your first choice, but if past experience is a guide, you should get one of your picks.
