All proceeds go to GiveDirectly.  GiveDirectly DIRECTLY sends on funds to recipients in some of the poorest countries on Earth, with an incredible track record to-date.  The effort sprang out of the Effective Altruism movement.

The first 7 auctions worked out spectacularly, in which our esteemed colleagues, @Bessio @Robcollects @Ichibunz @Deeperblue @Edge168n @Jklotz @CliveC have helped to raise $11,504 for a number of Kenyan families.  These are families earning less than the global poverty line of $1.90 / day.  All of the auction proceeds went directly to them, and the funds from the 7 auctions thus far will effectively double the incomes of 32 families for a year!

Here's what I propose:

• Let's open up bidding on the straps at, say, $20

• Please post your bid by commenting below

• The highest bid by Wednesday, August 24, 12pm PT wins the lot of straps

• Here’s where we do some real good for charity:  If you are the winning bidder, please then Paypal or Venmo me the winning bid amount.  I will make the donation of your winning bid, plus I will match that amount, to double the donation…  But that’s not all folks!  My employer will then do a full 100% match of that combined amount!  Thus, every $1 of the winning bid will get multiplied by 4!!!  Let me say that again - every $1 of the winning bid will turn into $4 donated to GiveDirectly!!!

• I will then post the screen shot of the full donated amount!

So, in summary:

• Win 14 straps

• Have the entirety of the proceeds go towards lifting a family out of extreme poverty

• QUADRUPLE the size of your charitable contribution through my and my employer’s matching funds

When I first saw this actress in "Superbad," I was absolutely floored!  But...  even then my Spidey-sense was tingling.  It's like this gal I would hang out with in NYC.  The single most comely woman I've ever seen.  But, 5 minutes into hanging out with her, I'd want to shoot myself!  Every couple of weeks, I'd be like, "I wonder what Nykki is doing."  I'd call her, we'd meet up, and then 5 minutes in, I'm imagining 101 ways to off myself to end the torture of being in her company.

Obviously, my Spidey-sense is superior to Johnny Depp's and Amber Heard's.  They should have avoided each other like the plague, the way I ended up avoiding Nykki!

Oh, man!  Then you're doing it wrong!

I mean, people pay good money for soiled personal items on the Internet...  or so I'm told!
