The Ugly Dogs Come Through

Blair Braverman (previously at Neatorama) and her team finished her first Iditarod on Sunday. Braverman’s social media fans call themselves the #UglyDogs. During the race, they got busy raising funds for a remote Alaskan school. They raised $7,000 in 24 hours to help fund a school trip for fourth-graders at Top of the Kuskokwim School in Nikolai. When that project was funded they turned to other school projects listed at DonorsChoose.org.

The #UglyDogs accomplished other things, too. Braverman finished 36th out of a field of 52, but her Twitter followers ballooned to over 75,000. -via Metafilter
