St Jude's

A student at Washington State University wanted to do something charitable for St. Jude's Children's Hospital this holiday season. 19-year Danni Messina tweeted out a challenge to her followers promising to donate 50 cents for every re-tweet and 25 cents for every like. She was prepared to donate as much as $1000, but she never expected her tweet to go viral. Her post was retweeted nearly 200,000 times and "liked" more than 400,000 times, which left her on the hook for $210,000. Since the total is a bit out of her budget, she decided to donate the $1000 and then start a GoFundMe campaign to try and raise the rest. So far, she's collected more than $58,000.
