My name is Kyle Feeney and I am raising money for Autism Speaks, the world's leading autism science and advocacy organization.
Upon awakening in the early afternoon of January 1, 2015 I had an unsatisfiable craving for pizza. By the time the night was over, my friends and I had concocted a challenge that will in all likelihood result in my waist size growing. Everyday for the next 365 days, I will eat at least one slice of pizza. While some slices will be good, and others may be bad, all of them will literally be a slice of heaven. My goal is to raise $10,000 for Autism Speaks. If met, I will get a tattoo of a pizza slice while ... you guessed it, eating a pizza slice. If by some divine miracle I raise more than the goal, I will add another slice to the pizza pie for every additional $10,000 raised. All of the proceeds will go to charity.
For the past 13 years my family and I have been volunteering at the annual Walk Now for Autism Speaks held in Westchester County. My cousin Robert, seen in the picture was diagnosed at an early age with Autism. Each year, we arrive early and do whatever we can to make the walk as fun as possible for the kids. Frequently this meant parading around in the 90 degree summer heat as either Tigger or Winnie the Pooh, which is hot to say the least. Over the course of high school, my brothers and I, along with some of my other cousins would all take turns babysitting for Robert after school. Between babysitting, sporting events, and the annual walk, all of us have come to know Robert as probably the coolest cousin of the bunch (sorry Sean).
This year, in addition to attending the walk, I have decided to join my awesome Aunt and Uncle (Nancy and Bobby McCarthy) and the rest of my extended family in the fundraising game.
I ask you all to please help me in this gluttonous undertaking. While I hope all who donate realize the need for Autism research, I wouldn't be opposed to anyone who donates to this worthy cause just to see me get a regrettable tattoo.
