Rahm Emanuel promised to give $5000 to the charity of choice of the twitter parodist if he'd disclose his identity. Dan Sinker did, and picked a great organization - Young Chicago Authors. The donation is being matched, too.
If you don't know about these folks and what they do in Chicago with kids across a lot of racial/economic lines, take a look at their website at http://www.youngchicagoauthors.org/
And if you have a chance to go to YCA's Teen Poetry Slam, Louder Than a Bomb, it's a special experience, IMHO. It's going on right now.

Yes, YCA is pretty fantastic. Glad to hear they got some money and recognition.
