Daily Afternoon Randomness (46 Photos)

You'll pardon the late DAR today. As many of you know, we posted a story about Taylor Morris, the Navy EOD tech who lost all four of his limbs when a mine exploded underneath him in Afghanistan last month. I asked the Chivers to raise $30,000 for a down payment on his dream cabin when he was finally able to return home to Iowa.

The Chivers had other ideas. They dismissed the idea of a down payment and decided to pay for the entire log cabin instead. We raised the goal of $30,000 in an hour flat.

In the last 3 hours since I posted it, Taylor's story has gone viral. We have just crossed the $95,000. We're on the cusp of hitting $100,000!!! I'm speechless at the Chivers' generosity as is Taylor and the entire Morris family. I will continue update the page through today into tomorrow.

Original Story HERE. Donate HERE.

Super-Awesome Update: We just hit $100,000 and the donations show no sign of stopping.

Late Night Update
: I'll continue these updates first thing in the morning. Even late into the night the donations continue to surge. We've hit $143,000. You've exceeded the initial goal by over $100,000. Words escape me.

    • JimmyP06

      especially after this, we need to change the "probably the best site in the world" to "more than just a website, it's a way of life"

    • Ogre86

      God Speed brother, your work will always be remembered and appreciated by those that you served with and those that served with your community. It's nothing much, but I humbly send a gift to your new home and ask all chivers to send at least the amount of a t-shirt to you and your family, live in peace with the respect and honor deserved of your sacrifice. God Bless

    Freaking IMPOSSIBRU to be first on the DAR meowadays,
    The number of Chivers IS TOO DAMN HIGH!!1!
    Last minute before this (late) DAR went live: 173.872 hits/refreshes on the main page!

    – the one who can't afford to buy y'all a free drink anymore

    • hark1985

      I said the same thing Paula!

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        She's not a redhead though; I overlooked that. I'll pass.


    • chivepolice

      The hits would be fewer if you'd put the DAR up on time, John.

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        It was WORSE an hour earliersies! And I'm not John! I'm the one who hides his Kleenex on fridays.

        • S.Freud

          Oh no, the fat dog didn't get her DAR on time. John, the next time you want to help a wounded veteran you might want to remember to consult with this maggot infested cunt first to make sure it won't interfere with her schedule. We can't have Paula the Hut missing her DAR now, can we?

          Show some respect, you fucking whale. There are more important things than your galaxy-spanning ass getting to see the DAR on time. I'd tell you to go fuck yourself too, but you've probably drugged a midget and stuffed him up under all those sweaty rolls of flesh already. Not to mention that the only corner you could fit into would be a corner of the space-time continuum.

          • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

            You should stop drinking so heavily after a victory John…

            – love ya though ❤

            • S.Freud

              For the love of God, stop hugging people, you fucking planetoid. Every time you wrap those appendages around a living person you run the risk of absorbing them into yourself like the Blob. And take a bath–or have someone hose you off. They can smell your stink in orbit.

              • https://www.facebook.com/SnowtoriousB.I.G Morten Der Alte Norup

                You, sir, deserve a medale! 😀

      • S.Freud

        Apologies for trying to help a wounded veteran. How dare anyone think that a man who has had his body mutilated while serving his country is more important than a fucking ass like you and a fat pig like Paula getting your DAR on time.

        Now go fuck yourself in the corner, idiot.

        • Garret

          You sir, are my favorite person today,

          • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

            I ❤ him too.

            – the one you love to hate

    • Trav1121

      I wish you were first also, Paula. I dislike you way less than that Fart guy, which is a stretch cuz you are pretty damn dickish sometimes. At least your comments are amusing, instead of generic fluff.

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        You dislike me less??!? Damn, I needs to works on that…
        Yo momma is so poor that she… uhmm… really is poor! Yeah, that'll teach you… Ha! Pwnd you hard!

        – the one you love to hate

        • Trav1121

          See? Only a comment that well thought out could seem so fail. Unlike a Fart reply of 'NO U R!1!' Ugh…

    • guest

      go away paula.. and never come back

      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        The correct text is:
        "Leave meow and never come back". Know your fucking classics!!1!

        We… we told him to go away! And away he goes, preciousss…

    • Trav1121

      She is the best of the bunch, with a very generous helping of underboooob!

  • @BuckeyeEmpire

    Didnt even need a DAR after the Taylor Morris post…THAT is what we Chive for, BRAVO CHIVE, BRAVO

    • Panigale

      No we chive for titties..if there was no hump day, find her, sexy chivers among us, or fit girl posts this site would be non existent. Period. What separates the.chive is people feel that its some kind of community that can help others in a real way. But if the.site git rid of.the.hot girl posts it would not exist.

      • @BuckeyeEmpire

        you can get all that anywhere on the net. Its called porn. Find a website full of people random people who have never met who take it upon themselves to -on the drop of a hat- raise $100k for a wounded soldier.

        • Andrew


        • Panigale

          Wrong. Guys like the girl next door. They feel like they almost have a chance with these women….porn is porn..filthy. Did you not read the part where I wrote community? Mr.Buckeye…you are not a follower of this site just because of its philanthropy. The chive has an original concept because it has hot women, funny pics and other clever pics (most of them are filtered from other sites) but they were the first to bring it all together. People want to feel included..and the chive in some weird way brings random strangers to look at lulz cats and bewbs and then urges them to donate to these causes…which.they would not do if this was just any website. I donated because I like to help people who are not as fortunate especially ones who have fought for our freedom. Im not gonna proofread this sumbitch either. So you wankers who feel the need to be a gn..go fek urself.

          • Lela

            You're such a philanthropist. Look at you. You want a Purple Heart for that?

            • Panigale

              Thanks lela! Didn't know that I could receive the purple heart by just one simple donation. Wow! Just think how many purple hearts will be awarded after today. Could you put me in contact with the person who gives the award? My contact info is……gofuckyourself@youraworthlesscunt.com. Thanks!

          • raw

            100% agreed. Chive wouldn't have the traffic it does without the attention-skanks.

          • 8497

            truth hurts. u mad chivers?

          • truthserum

            I've been saying this shit for MONTHS.

  • John

    I've been on the phone with Taylor and the Morris family this afternoon, they are in shock at the Chivers' generosity. You should be so proud of yourselves today, you've changed somebody's life forever in hours flat. I've never been so proud of this community as I am right now.


    • Quailman

      We're proud to help! Thanks for bringing us the story!

    • @BuckeyeEmpire

      Solid work John! Best site in the World for that exact reason

    • Whoopi_G

      Thanks for the story, and the opportunity to help out.

      • @BuckeyeEmpire

        I just pictured your Predator avi saying that… seemed really really odd. But agree!

        • heyhey

          Quit sucking his dick so hard! You are practically inside him right now. Go Blue!!!

    • Jim

      Thank you, John. Such an amazing story, we are all happy and honored to help. Can't wait to see the pictures of Taylor and his girl sitting on their chairs on the porch of their new cabin.

      • Reg

        theCHIVE is the place to be. I just challenged all my Facebook friends to match or beat my donation. CHIVE ON!

    • bob_the_cook

      Don't care that DAR is late, so long as Taylor gets the cabin he has so bravely earned. KCCO!

    • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

      Great work John, seriously!

      You won't be rolling out of your bed tonight, that's for sure!! 🙂

      – the one you…. uhmmm…

    • the dutch suck

      s'what we do.

    • Frankus

      Proud to be American and a chiver. Now let's keep it up and let's build this hero the place he deserves

    • BloodScrubber

      Next step, Resig for President. He can get the job done with people who actually care. Just sayin.
      Great work Chive.

    • http://thechive.com F3n1x187

      We ain't done I'm still locked up at work!!!

    • Ummagumma

      Just checked out the latest update: passed $100k. I'm proud to be a part of that and proud to be a Chiver. Good luck to you, Taylor.

    • Karl

      Whatever you do, please follow up on Taylor frequently.

    • Dylan

      This is why we always said you guys are good people – such great thing to do – thanks to the chive and chivers for helping this hero out!

    • KayakAggie

      I am proud to be apart of this also. I donated right after I read his story. Amen and God bless The Chive and all the Chivers/ Chivettes who contributed. KCCO & Gig'em.

    • https://www.facebook.com/john.minton2 John Rives Minton

      It sure is nice seeing you use your popularity and success for causes like this. Thats a great thing. On another note, I sure hope Uncle Sam doesn't take a big chunk….

      • Djblue

        Even if uncle sam does take a big chunk, I'm sure we will more than make up for it.

    • GlobeSwatter

      Would it be legal to create a new country just for Chivers? I think it would be a big hit. Everyone just being kind to others, doing the right thing, gorgeous women everywhere, everyone Chiving on…Oh… And beer… There will be beer.

    • http://www.cupcakesbymartha.com MarthaJeane

      I'm just imagining Taylor's family, sitting there today, watching the donations pour in, and what their reactions must've been like at the $10K that was hit almost instantly. Simply thinking about it makes my eyes watery. I imagine they cried so many joyful tears today that can hopefully help make up for all the ones of despair they've cried so far. May all the tears to come by so happy as they are today for this brave hero and his family!

      • hotshot.

        Quit swinging from the scrote…sounds like you want to give a lil knobber…..gobble gobble martha! don't choke.

        • truthserum


      • http://thechive.com/ Paula_

        Yeah, fuck down payments, we're going to give them the cabin!

    • Djblue

      just point us in the right direction!

    • Dave

      You're proud? You SHOULD be. You guys are amazing and we – as a community – are an amazing bunch. A gang that YOU brought together. So yeah. This is what humanity is about. Getting together to share a laugh, admire the beauty in the world, acknowledge the ugly and to help each other out. I'm a grown man who's cried several times today because of this site. When I'm feeling low I come to The Chive and my faith in humanity is restored. Chive On from Canada, John and gang!

      • Panigale

        I literally lold when you said you have cried several times today because of this site. You have.got to.be trolling…..and if you're not…..please check that your sack has two testicles……oh nevermind…I.just saw that you are canadien.

      Thats so awesome…well said

    • Swiss Chalet

      I'm so broke, but just gave my last twenty! KCCO!!!!!!!!

    • Gallus

      You have made this community possible. Your tribute to Memorial Day was the best and most poignant I have seen for many years. Your support of the armed forces is praise worthy. As a 20 year veteran, I am surprized and infinitely pleased to see support I never saw during my active duty time. I am new to this community, yet infinitely happy to be here. – Thanks, John.

    • http://twitter.com/FastEddie82 @FastEddie82

      A monetary donation is the very least we can do to say thank you to someone who made a huge sacrifice for his country. I have so much respect for those who serve. It takes a special kind of person to do it. KCCO this site rocks

    • gusto

      Don't get me wrong saying this, I love what has happened here, but this is going to open the floodgates on charitable causes wanting posts. Maybe once a month or two do something like this so we don't get burned out (of money and empathy)?

    • SGT_Fati

      Man I love this site! KCCO Taylor.

    • http://www.facebook.com/lee.yates Lee Yates

      John…..bud….proud of us? Are you shitting me? We're proud of you for finding this opportunity so we can be a part of something better than ourselves. What an honor and privilege it is to be a part of this. Without you introducing this to us, we would never experienced the wonderful gift of knowing. Through you and the Chive….we make a fuckin difference…and I got to be a part !! Thanks, man !! I'll invest in the Chive when you guys have your IPO !! Proud as hell to be a Chiver…never more proud than today. KCCO !!!!!!!

      • Jim

        Well said, Lee.

      • treeman

        Let me guess you donated to KONY 2012. You are so lame. WTF is up with this KCCO shit? When I where my KCCO shirt and get a "CHIVE ON!" If they have tits I say "chive on!" right back, if its some douchebag like you I give a quick "fuck off". I where it to get laid. Works almost everytime. "John…..bud…..proud of us?" That is the fucking lamest line Ive ever read. Not sure why I am so pissed off….but…dammit you are such a clown. John…who ever he is…does not like you….he is a millionaire, living in a mansion off the coast driving a ferrari with some slut suckin his cack pretending to be some modern day ghandi. He is a genius ,that man john. He has got all of you believing that this internet schwag site is a "community". It's not. Now you all are emotionally invested, and you will never be able to stop. You've been duped!!! To late now though!!! You're on the hook!!

        • Really?

          Look up the word "wear", it will change your life.

          • treeman

            Are you saying that where and wear are different? Tell me more. What about there their and they're? Are they different two? or is it to..maybe too? Shut the fuck up. Thanks for your contribution though. Ill proof read all my comments, and then I will hire an editor to oversee my random post like it's a fucking published in the NYT. I hate clowns that read everyone else's shit..and then pick out every fucking error. Have sex "Really?"….it will change your life.

            • POOR EXCUSE

              Loser. Way to take the time to comment a fucking essay about something you "dont care' about. You're a heartless asshole, and quite a poor excuse for a chiver and human being. My assumption: You're mad because there wasn't tits involved with that AWESOME story, so sadly you couldn't FAP-which is really what you mean by you "getting laid."

            • faemike

              have you considered a total castration so as not to pollute the gene pool?
              too bad your father didn't do that

        • StickyWickets

          I would love for you to tell me to "fuck off" after a "Chive On!' I'll gladly take that shirt from you and shove it straight up your ass. After that you won't have to worry about any "douchebags" like me giving you a hard time.

    • NebraskaGuy

      I'm glad we could do this for him!!


    • JHNWRL

      So much of the world is basically upset with America because of your Government's unilateral stance on foreign policy and also by the occasional gung-ho assholes that come our way – but then you guys go and do something like this!!!! I tip my hat to you and say BRAVO good souls – BRAVO!!!!!
