Muppet Fans Doing Good: THANK YOU!

If anyone ever needed proof that Muppet fans are the best, they just need to look at the Muppet Fans Doing Good campaign.

Two weeks ago, we set our campaign in motion. We asked our friends, colleagues, and celebrities to donate prizes. We provided links to some positive organizations where people could donate. And then the Muppet fan community did the rest of the work.

Over 100 Muppet fans submitted donations, raising an extremely impressive $10,496!

Yes, that’s over ten thousand dollars, all for charities that help Black communities, LGBTQ+ communities, and the underprivileged. I can’t even tell you how blown away I am by your generosity. Money like this isn’t raised just from the promise of Muppet prizes – this is a genuine act of good and a desire to see a better world.

I want to thank our generous prize donors, who offered their talent, personal property, and time to help us build an impressive list of enviable raffle items. To Noel MacNeal, Louis Henry Mitchell, Leslie Carrara-Rudolph, Chris Smigliano, Peter Savieri, Evan G., Luke Flowers, Chris Stulz, Matt Vogel, Alan Muraoka, Jarrod Fairclough, and Peter Linz: We legitimately can’t thank you enough.

A huge thank you goes out to the 110 Muppet fans who donated to this campaign. You helped make this movement a success, and more importantly, you made the positive choice to be a part of the solution. I hope each and every one of you feels as proud of yourselves as I do.

Unfortunately, only 18 of the 110 donors will be receiving prizes (though I’m sure the satisfaction of giving to charity is enough of a prize!). We assigned a number for every raffle entry and put them into a random number generator, and these are the folks who will be getting some goodies:

  • Evan Nisenson
  • Matthew Horvath
  • Jack Thomas
  • Natasha Morehouse
  • Diane Bradley
  • Julia Gaskill
  • David Lu
  • Meagan Real
  • Rafi Levavi
  • Dara Zwemer
  • Noah Lazar
  • David Isetta
  • Ian Phelps
  • Kathleen Burke
  • Sam Mayer
  • Jack Laughlin
  • Kyle Frisch
  • Meagan Barbeau

Congrats to the lucky donors! Winners will be contacted throughout the day, so if you see your name and you haven’t heard from us by Tuesday, June 30, please contact us.

Once again, huge thanks to everyone who contributed to Muppet Fans Doing Good!
