Here at Grist, we are berry grateful to all our lovely, generous readers who donated during the May 2010 “Save our endangered journalists” fund-raiser. We were thrilled to hit our mark of 2,000 delicious donations.

Behind the scenes, we set our own challenge: Our President and Founder, Chip Giller, offered to let us throw a pie in his face if every staffer inspired at least one donation. Needless to say, we jumped at the chance. Did we fulfill our mission? Watch the video to find out — you might just RPOTFL (that’s Rolling Pin On The Floor Laughing, of course).

Grist relies on the support of generous readers like you. Donate today to keep our climate news free. All donations matched!
