Padres President will donate dollar for every new follower this year in fight against cancer

Padres President/COO Tom Garfinkel is pledging one dollar for every new twitter follower that he gets this year. He started at 900 followers on January 1st and currently has 1,041. That's $141 being donated to Stand Up 2 Cancer.

I will donate $1 for every new follower between today and Jan 1 2013 to @SU2C to fight cancer. Wishing you all a healthy and peaceful 2012.

Garfinkel has been accused of hating: the color brown, the Friar and even lunch and dinner. Say what you will about those things, but this is definitive proof that the dude really LOATHES cancer.

I'm assuming you all follow him already, you should, but tell your friends and retweet.

This is a dangerous game he's playing. If he gets too many followers, like a MILLION we may need to start a campaign to unfollow him so we don't put him and his family in the poor house, but let's worry about that later. First things first.
