    I wanted to do something special for Leap Day AND raise money for Give Kids the World...here's what I came up with:

    Tom's Tea Cup Torture Challenge

    On Leap Day, February 29th, 2012 I will be riding the Mad Tea Party at Disneyland to benefit Give Kids the World.

    Here's where you come in--for every $250 that's raised, I will spend ONE HOUR riding the tea cups (up to a maximum of 12 hours).*

    I will get in line for the Mad Tea Party at 12 noon on Leap Day and continue getting on and off the ride until the clock runs out!

    Here's a bonus for folks that will be at Disneyland for Leap Day: anyone that donates $20 in person on Leap Day can ride with me and spin, spin, spin that tea cup.

    *As this is not a Disney sponsored event, I will wait in the line with everyone else. At the end of each hour I will take a 5 minute restroom break. Any in-person donations on Leap Day will not increase the time on the ride.


    I'm sure I can do 12 hours on the Tea Cups...can you help raise $3,000 for Give Kids the World?

    Awesome! I'm so glad you have more than a few minutes to complete!

    AND there is still 13 More days for donations to get you up to 12 hours!!

    I can't wait to hear after the event how it all goes!
