It’s rare that Stephen Colbert steps (mostly) out of character to address his fans directly. But when fans raise over $140K in two days for one of his favorite charities, Donors Choose, he definitely appreciates it. Here’s a letter that was sent directly to Reddit to address the Colbert Rally community there.
If you didn’t catch all of the Reddit memes dropped in this letter, go over to Urlesque.com, who has links to virtually all of the references.
Since the letter was posted, the amount raised has leaped to $219,620, from 5,412 Colbert Nation donors and reaching 59,354 students!! Again, way to go Nation! And as for that photo proof that Reddit talked about? It looks a little something like this.
