Potential fundraiser?

It was Hemingway who said “Write drunk, edit sober.”  However, most people don’t know that, as cited, this omits the latter half of the quote, which I’m pretty sure was “…if you’re a total wimp.”

I posted a facebook status: “I feel like I’m writing pretty well today.  I should drink when I write more often…”  I had a beer today while writing and, given my (lack of) ability to hold my alcohol, it’s loosening me up and I’m feeling pretty good.

Then Shayrah Akers from the Dogma Debate podcast commented saying “We should have a contest to see who writes the best drunk post. No sober editing, entries appear anonymous to the public.”  Why anybody would want the sheer awesome and glorious catharsis of writing while inebriated relegated to anonymity, I will never know.  Anyway, I fired back that we should pick a day, do ten posts, and have a beer before each post.  We could do it for a fundraiser and let people enjoy our complete lack of censor switches.  We could auction of topics to benefit some secular organization.

I’m all about this.  So, what bloggers should we drag into this?  For which organization(s) should we raise money?  Let’s make some atheist goodness happen.
