Donate a vaccine with HCA for Go Give One IPAs for All

Buy a Round of IPAs!

Go Give One Fundraiser. Vaccines for Everyone

Donations raised through Go Give One go to an international financial mechanism called COVAX Advanced Market Commitment (AMC), which buys COVID-19 vaccines for the world, prioritizing those who need them the most, in countries that cannot afford them.

r/HermanCainAward has its own fundraiser code (embedded in the link below) so we can track how much our subreddit donates collectively. We have an FAQ.

Donate with your Reddit Username (use that as your first name, and "Reddit" as your last name) if you’d like us to recognize you, or check the box to donate anonymously. [Example]. You'll also get special gold user flair! Edit: underscores are not allowed, use a space instead. Message the mods if you had a typo or didn't get your flair, we will find it.

Every $5 donation buys a vaccine

Updated Nov 10 12:30PM ET: Over $54,600 from 1500 donations! We're first on their list of top fundraisers.

Edit: please give us some time to assign the gold flair. If you don't see it within a few hours, please message the mods.

Edit: Gold flair has been retired. Gray "Go Give One" user flair is now available to everyone, you may self-assign it -->

In the United States, we have an abundance of COVID vaccines; we watch helplessly as HCA Awardees turn up their noses at preventative medicine, and die horrible, torturous deaths.

Meanwhile, many countries are being left behind and unable to vaccinate their populations. Only 20% of people in low-income countries have received a first dose of vaccine compared to 80% in high- and upper-middle income countries.

With such low vaccination rates in lower income countries, strict behavioral measures have to remain for the foreseeable future, and they potentially become breeding grounds for new variants.

The global picture of access to COVID-19 vaccines is unacceptable, let's make a difference.

EDIT:

Just wanted to express some deep gratitude for you all today! You smashed through our fundraising goal in no time!

EDIT 2 / 3:

We blew our goals 1,2 and 3 1-4 out of the water, and it looks like we still have many donations rolling in!!! We've updated the goal to $25,000 $50,000 because this seems far from over! You guys have exceeded our wildest expectations!!!

u/chronoventer 🦆 Oct 25 '21

Hey, I know qanon people are obnoxious and calling them names is funny. But “q-tard” is a play off “r*tard”, which is an ableist slur against intellectually disabled people. Being a close-minded idiot isn’t the same as being intellectually disabled and intellectually disabled people probably don’t want to be associated with morons who refuse to think for themselves. Either way; it’s a slur against the whole community. So if you could pick a different word, that’d be great (:

I’m sorry your mom got roped in to all that stuff. That must be really hard. Also happy Cake Day!

u/Turawno Oct 26 '21

Are you going to continue being a hypocrite or edit your comment?

u/chronoventer 🦆 Oct 26 '21 edited Oct 26 '21

? What am I being a hypocrite about? And what should I edit my comment to say? OP said they edited their comment, I said thanks, that’s much appreciated. Are you wanting me to add it to this comment too?

Edit: I’m guessing you’re replying off the other reply. So I’ll copy paste.

Moron isn’t ableist. It isn’t used as a slur against disabled people. The definition of a word a century ago doesn’t make it a slur. The usage of it does. R_tard was a clinical classification as well, but was then used, and still used, as a slur.

It’s like “dumb”. If it’s used against an intellectually disabled or mute person, you’re being ableist, but the word itself is not. I refuse to police every word someone says because of what it meant 150 years ago. That just aids in how we (the disabled community) aren’t taken seriously.

“R_tard” in itself is ableist. It’s a slur against intellectually disabled people that is still used today. That’s the important factor. The word is still in use as a slur.

We don’t care if you call your friends dumb or a moron for doing something dumb, because those words aren’t super offensive slurs that are still in use. We don’t live in the past. The disabled community has more to worry about than people using words that used to be a slur a century ago.

u/fabs1171 Go Give One Oct 23 '21

Just donated 7 vaccines - I wish I could honour those work colleagues that are medically trained and their whole careers use evidenced based practice. To the staff prepared to lose their jobs in order to prove a point. To the staff who use anecdotal stories to ‘prove their point’, that have such great immune systems that they’re not willing to use their clinical reasoning skills and their ability to use the knowledge they’ve gained in their University degrees to wade through the bullshit and realise that they’ve just been caught up in fear and hype and realise just how incredibly uneducated they are.

I’m so over those who don’t believe they need to show us their mask exemption despite the fact that it’s part of the emergency management policy or argue that their sore throat is not covid so they don’t need a swab. Sure, it looks like bacterial tonsillitis but why run the risk of it being covid.

I am COVID fatigued. I don’t know how much energy I have left to keep working in this environment and I’m the lucky one. My country has remained reasonably unscathed from high covid numbers and deaths.

To the 3 1/2 people who will receive their covid vaccine, it’s a pleasure to help you. To those who reject the science - your are the HC nominees and I feel no sympathy for your nomination but I do have empathy for those who they may injure or kill with their ignorance.

So sorry for the rant - I’m just so tired

It's okay to rant. It's okay to be exhausted by this. And you're awesome.

u/kickingscreaming Irrgent prayers needed 😂 Oct 23 '21

Mods, I donated a couple hours ago but want to keep my flair. If it could be the same but gold that would be cool, otherwise let’s leave it as-is.

u/jollypurplehippo Team Moderna Oct 23 '21

How did you change your user flair? When I try, I can only pick between some pre-identified options.

u/Elven_Boots Oct 25 '21

What do you want

u/jollypurplehippo Team Moderna Oct 25 '21

Could I please have: Horse Paste Connoisseur

Look for a possible flair-party post on Sunday, usually in the evening for U.S. time zones. No guarantee, but it's been done on Sundays a number of times.

One of the mods had a custom flair party.

u/astraelly Go Give One Oct 23 '21

Whoops, didn’t see the screenshot with the prepended “u/“ but donated some 💵 to the cause!

I’ve had friends and relatives overseas clamoring for vaccines for months now, and it’s a goddamn shame how folks in the west are squandering them.

Happy to help!

u/Clearlylock Go Give One Oct 23 '21

So I donated using my user name and “reddit” and now I get to try and convince my company to match my donation with this receipt…. ¯(ツ)

Good luck!

u/RedheadedScapeGoat It Only Hurts When They Breathe Oct 23 '21

Since I was dumb and commented about this in the wrong thread, I'm being REALLY careful to comment on the right place now 😆

But seriously, every one of you rock. Rockin' rock stars that rock on, dudes. I love you guys, gals and non-binary pals.

u/mesembryanthemum Go Give One Oct 23 '21

u/Tumbleweedenroute Go Give One Oct 23 '21

Nice job organizing! Thanks!

u/texteditorSI Go Give One Oct 23 '21

In for $10 because they wouldn't let me donate $9.99 for our hero, Herman Cain

He wanted to be the very best, like no one ever was**

Wonderful.

Wow, just wow. I am blown away by the generosity of this subreddit. Y'all are fucking rock stars!

u/Might_Aware ✨Hey GhoulFriend!!!!🦇🎃👻 Oct 22 '21

I donated an IPA to u/tropicalbipolarbear. They are having frustrating situations with their unvaxxed mum

Really Bug Hug

u/_Canid_ 🤶🏻🎅🧑🏽‍🎄5G Compatible 🎅🏾🧑🏽‍🎄🤶🏻 Oct 22 '21

Donated; used a space instead of underscore before and after Canid so hopefully you guys will be able to pick it up.

This is actually pretty awesome!

u/MrJuniperBreath Go Give One Oct 22 '21

I realized I didn't follow your username instructions to give Reddit credit. Looks like it has a cookie though because it shows the 42k?

u/marce11a Go Give One Oct 23 '21

You’re very welcome! I think this kind of thing helps everyone—you to get vaccinated, and everyone to avoid a variant potentially worse than delta.

12

u/MrJuniperBreath Go Give One Oct 22 '21

Donated!

u/Captainwelfare2 🇺🇦🌻Putin’s on the Fritz?🌻🇺🇦 Oct 22 '21

Just donated 3 more awards! :). Let’s make this the most popular post on Reddit! Even more popular than when Matt Gaetz goes to Prison! :)

u/Captainwelfare2 🇺🇦🌻Putin’s on the Fritz?🌻🇺🇦 Oct 23 '21

Absolutely! Im sorry a good 30% of our country is too stupid and taking for granted what others are desperately waiting for.

12

u/merryone2K Team Pfizer Oct 22 '21

I love the way you think!

13

u/TheDuchessofDooM Team Pfizer Oct 22 '21

Done. Thank you for doing this!!

9

u/old_galoot Go Give One Oct 22 '21

Done. But it didn't like the underscore in my user name so I was "old galoot Reddit." Hope I get my gold flair because I'm a Reddit newbie although I have lurked off and on at times.

Could only afford one, but it’s the one my MIL refuses to take.

Suck it, Deborah.

It really helps that her name is Deborah...

u/smaxfrog We should all fear the pancreas poop Oct 22 '21

Over 8,200 vaccines!

u/Captainwelfare2 🇺🇦🌻Putin’s on the Fritz?🌻🇺🇦 Oct 22 '21

Still pushing forward! I was just informed we hit $40,000!!!

u/NoyaCat Go Give One Oct 22 '21

Donated. Really hoping this sub will change my parents' minds

17

u/rfreemore Team Mix & Match Oct 22 '21

It may have helped change my mom's mind. She finally got her Vax last month. I've been telling her about all the HCA award receivers. I just donated too.

23

u/jinchuuriqueen Blood Type: 5G Oct 22 '21

Donated! Saw the pin in another post and just wanted to add my comment here as well. $25 well spent and when I get paid in the next week I’m going to set up a monthly donation. We Americans are lucky to get the vaccine for free, least I can do to help our comrades around the globe who aren’t so lucky

17

u/StreetofChimes Dead Ringer Oct 22 '21

Finally got to a computer to do this. Love that HCA is helping vaccinate the world. Thanks for putting this fundraiser together. Gives me all the warm fuzzies.
