*Imgurian Cookbook Chapter 2*
The holiday season is here, and with it comes friends, family and, most importantly, food! Earlier this year, we collectively created the first chapter of The Imgurian Cookbook. This month, we wrote Chapter Two full of holiday recipes for the whole family. from Japanese Jambalaya @16usPecan Pie Cheesecake @CleverLoserName, and everything in between, we saw an amazing assortment of cuisines. It’s safe to say that our community chefs did not disappoint!

For the past six years, hundreds of Imgurians have come together under the Team Imgur moniker on the first weekend of November to raise funds for Children’s Miracle Network Hospitals in a 24-hour charity gaming event called Extra Life. Together we raise much needed funds for sick and injured children whose families otherwise cannot afford health care.
This year the team raised over $43,000 for the kids! From silly haircuts and temporary tattoos to beanboozes and googly eyes, you all went over and over with encouragement to secure those donations. you rock!
Congratulations and thanks to all Imgurians who helped raise funds for this wonderful cause. The biggest, biggest hug to anyone who donated or hyped the Twitch chat to make this year extra special. Special Thanks to Our Top Imgur Fundraiser Team @getting old And all the Imgurians joining the 24-hour stream! @marpizza @MadameRainbowpants @Kantakistan @GingerSnark @WhoBuiltTheArk @Nerdiwan @interesseretAnd @AspectHistory,

*Philly Chicken Man*
Some of the best things in life are better left to the imagination. Well, one of those things is the Philly Chicken Man. For reasons unknown to the world, this brave soul decided to consume forty chickens in a row with the 40th meal, creating a modern art masterpiece.
People from across town flocked to an abandoned pier to watch him eat, the strangest gathering of people we’d seen in ages. After a friend shared this with imgurians @EvilCatCreationsHe took this story of Poultry forward and posted this “non-party” to the amusement of many.
*50+ Toilet Donations*
to honor his late brother Imgurion @thatguythatsreallyhot Started JWR Outreach, a charity to support under-served communities with vital resources such as nutrition, medical care and education. Earlier this month, he shared his initiative to provide toilets to several families in the Philippines. Many communities in the Philippines do not have access to clean toilet facilities or ‘comfort rooms’.
Their ultimate goal is to achieve zero open defecation in the areas they support. So far, they have installed a handful of toilets. Kind-hearted Imgurians lent their support to raise that number. Hopefully, with our help, they can reach their goal of 50+ by the end of 2023!

*bubble wrap the cat*
Earlier this month, Imgurians @BottomShelfVodka Posted about a stray cat that had been coming to them for a few weeks. Not being able to leave the poor cat outside in the cold, they got a small tent and heating lamp for her until they could find her a home. They won’t need to wait long because just hours after the post went live, the kind Imgurian @missmisschief13 And @macthelost Will arrive to give him a faraway home.
Macthelost turned out to be a local and welcomed the cat with open arms. Bubble Wrap has settled in well in her new home and is safe and happy. The Imgur community is booming with kind people, and this story is a testament to that.

*Secret Santa Workshop*
The Secret Santa Workshop is a place where you can demonstrate what you make, how you make it, and where anyone can go and buy it. From painting and lighting in a bottle to crochet creations, custom clothing and more, Imgurians create so many amazing things with their hands. We invited the hottest crafters among us to share their wares for all to browse this holiday season. Thousands of Imgurians flocked to the workshop to find the perfect gift or to post their creations for the proverbial flea market.
stopped by #secretsantaworkshop to see the incredible items on offer!
*Seven years labor of love*
After seven years of development, Imgurion @jordylakieros has finally released his one-man project titled “We Who Are About to Die”. Throughout development, he shared his progress with us, narrating the creative process in game form.
The music, 3D assets, sound effects, and more were created from scratch. He even spent two whole months learning the intricacies of music composition to infuse more life into his passion project. This hard work would pay off, as the game was released on Steam to critical acclaim at an almost 90% approval rating.

*Thanks to all for this community*
Sometimes, we just need to ask for help. Imgurian @andidancedancedanceandidancedancedance That’s exactly what some heartfelt requests for help finding work did. Expecting a downvote, he was pleasantly surprised by the support of his peers. His fellow Imgurians also provided job leads and direct donations to help him get back on his feet. Soon after his initial positions, he received an offer for a position as an intern with pay. Great job, Imgurian!
This month marked the Thanksgiving holiday in America, and we thought we’d extend the thankful vibes to the entire community. For a few days, we encouraged everyone to share the things that mattered most to them. From Thanksgiving spreads to showing appreciation for friends, family, life, nature, or pets, we have much to appreciate. Even though we don’t always show or say it, this week, we did.
