Very cool, and of course it'll go a long way to get those donations coming in.

Yeah saw him on the news in a short interview. It showed him in a GB vid w/all the dudes also making that blink. He called the gif "incredulous". Love me some Drew. :-)

Using his internet fame for the good of others...

Drew, your humility and humanity never cease to swaddle my heart. I miss him way too much at GB; Drew and Vinny and Dan together in any combination is one of my favourites things in life.

Glad it's getting more coverage, but it hasn't boosted his funding as much as I'd have thought. Not quite at the goal yet :(

Literal front page news on CNN is pretty crazy though, for what its worth.

@north6: He has upped his goal. I think his initial goal was 20k.

I remember checking when the page first went up and I think the initial goal was only maybe 5-10k so he has possibly upped the goal 3 times already.

@rorie:

Think how different your life could have been if you only thought to blink a bunch of times.

Cary Elwes I totally get but I've seen several people say they thought the gif was Michael C Hall and I don't see that at all. Drew looks nothing like the dude from Dexter lol.
