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.

    #40 What people dont realize I think so far too is that this is in France (I am actually going to be in St Tropez in 2 months) and the currency is even in Euro's not in USD\CAD. Thats a 133k$ USD bill… in one friggin night?!?!?! FML… Im working in the wrong place…

    *Also… the prices of the Dom Perignon are actually "accurate" for those bottles if anyone was wondering if it was a hoax or not. They go for about 30k$+ online if you can find a discounted bottle, so I wouldn't doubt a high end VIP lounge is gonna jack it up a ways…

    What a dipshit, it is nice to see the generosity of chivers around the world almost comparing to what this asshole spent on his own birthday

    • Wait, wut

      You make a valid point, but according to the image caption it was a bachelor party not a birthday party. From what I've experienced a soon to be groom & his buddies typically drop a fuckton more coin on the former.

    TaylorMorris.org is selling t-shirts to help raise money, also. I already donated after reading his story, but I'm definitely buying one of those t-shirts and wearing it with pride. THANK YOU TAYLOR!!! You are truly an American Hero!!!
