Feb 27 – MND Fundraising Ideas

Australian cricketer Shane Watson is a supporter of Motor Neuron Disease research, and has pledged to donate $200 for every four he scores at the tournament, $300 for every six and $300 for each wicket.

As strong supporters of the MND cause, we’re concerned that this may not flood the research coffers with cash.  Cricket is a funny game you know.

The Diary of the 17th Man offers some suggestions for others who might contribute:


AB de Villiers. $100 for every time he gets asked what AB stands for.

Joe Root. $50 for every time he gets asked for ID when entering an Australian pub

Piers Morgan. $0.50c for every pro-Kevin Pietersen tweet. Don’t be concerned about the low amount, this would be a huge money spinner.

Cricket journalists. $50 for every time “South Africa” and “choke” appear in the same article

Chris Gayle. We’ll take $300 for every 6 he hits, thanks very much. Come on McCullum, man up!

Dan Vitorri. $200 per catch, currently in the lead.

Steve Finn. $50 per six conceded as a bowler.

Virat Kholi. $250 for every beard trim received.

Michael Clarke. $300 for every visit to the physio.

Umpires. $100 per decision overturned by DRS.

Steve Smith. $0.02c for every fidget at the crease.  Any more would bankrupt him.


Any more to add?  That’s what comments are for!
