I’d better get started on a screenplay, because this is the most perfect straight-to-the-big-screen story I’ve heard in simply ages.
The Dogecoin Foundation, an actual charitable foundation based around a satirical cryptocurrency named after an actual dog meme, yes, really, has come to the rescue of the actual Jamaican Bobsled Team, who are actually going to be in the Olympics again.
IF they can ever get there.
The Jamaican Bobsled Team, who are actually called The Jamaican Bobsleigh Team because, I dunno, it’s cuter? have qualified to compete in the Sochi Winter Olympics that start next month in Russia. They are the team made famous by the John Candy movie Cool Runnings, the fictionalized story of how they made it to their first Olympics, back in 1988.
Money has always been as scarce with the team as snow in Jamaica, but this time it’s the Interwebs to the Rescue!
A Crowdtilt fundraiser has gathered more than $20,000 towards the costs of competition (travel, support for families back home, etc) and now the internet’s favorite Shiba Inu gallops in with a shocking $30,778 raised in just 24 hours.
The name of their fundraising site? Dogesled.
such coin. such charity. much generosity. wow.
Now if only the Jamaican dogsled team can bring desperately needed anti-diptheria serum to the suffering people in Alaska, the whole meme will be complete.
Oh man, that sounds like one of those live-action Disney movies I grew up watching. They’d cast Justin Bieber as the musher, who grew up marginalized for his paleness in Jamaica.

This isn’t an email.
Why do you want to email me? There’s a reason I don’t put an email address on this website: I don’t want emails.
