Finally, a Good Reason to Binge-Watch Entourage: Charity

Wendy Molyneux Drake is a writer, comedian, and as of this week, social justice warrior. Recently, Drake posted a GoFundMe campaign, where—in return for $10,000 worth of charitable donations—she will go see Entourage. All donations will go towards CureSearch, an organization that helps young children with cancer. As the author writes: “If you know me at all, you know there are two things I hate: pediatric cancers and the television show Entourage.”
Drake encourages her readers to “Please give five thousand or ten thousand dollars,” or, “don’t, because I really don’t want to see Entourage.” As of now, it looks like Drake is well on her way to hell. Over $6,901 dollars have been raised in a little over 24 hours, and donations are climbing fast.
Entourage is one of the most successful series to come out of HBO, but it isn’t quite loved by everyone. Critics have accused the show of being “sexist,” “callow,” and demonstrating “insipid cheeriness.” By offering to watch “the worst movie this year and possibly of our lifetime,” Drake’s shown that even hate-watching can have a heart.
