COLUMBUS, Ohio– Ohio State punter and expert bottle flipper Drue Chrisman used his special talents for a good cause.
Chrisman flipped water bottles for 24 hours to raise more than $14,000 for the World Wildlife Fund. The money will go towards helping animals injured by the devastating bushfires in Australia.
“Thank you to everyone who tuned in and donated. It was one of the most mentally draining experiences I’ve had but totally worth it,” Chrisman said on his Twitter account.
He said he also set a world record.
You can donate to the WWF here.
I’ve been cleared by my compliance team to raise money for an important cause during my world record attempt. I will be raising money/awareness for the Australian Bushfire emergency! I will provide and promote a link to @WWF where you can donate. Thank you! #savethekoalas pic.twitter.com/7pQP3xfNnQ
