This is how the big clubs do it;

The Essendon faithful has gone above and beyond in supporting those impacted by the bushfire crisis, helping Dyson Heppell instantly smash his $50k fundraising target.

No-one ever thought there wasn't lots of you and that your club and its supporters aren't generally well-off. Weird post.

Good on Shortsteppel for doing this and good on everyone who contributed to an excellent cuse. And he won't have that do any more which is a win for humankind.

SMH at some of this. Surely what Heppell is doing is an honorable and compassionate thing. Like the cricketers, he's using his profile to raise more money than the average Joe could ever achieve, for a cause that we all support. It's not virtue signalling, FFS. (As an aside, has any term been more over-used on this forum in the past year?)

Yeah, on field he's the face of the club we hate and we enjoy his below average disposal skills, plus he was part of the disgraceful cheating program that some are still denying.

But these are two different things and I don't understand how some don't see that.

No, we’re raising money in the spirt of the thread... except it’s not going to some virtue signalling middle man.
I’m sure shortsteppal won’t mind being the butt of some jokes if it adds to raising money.

I'm sorry but how cooked are your brains that you're finding a way to spin charity as something to be mocked and derided? This is what a footy club should do.I hate Essendon as much as the next north melbourne person but this is undeniably a good thing.
It must be decidedly uncomfortable watching a Roos game knowing that the cooked brains you are referring to, are actually close by.
