Reminds me of this story.

Ricky Gervais is an internet troll with a heart of gold.

The comedian posted a charitable challenge to his Twitter followers this week saying that he would donate 5,000 (about $3500) to charity if they could show a little self-restraint and not retweet his message.

If no one RTs this, I will donate 5,000 to a charity of your choice.
A few minutes and 594 retweets later Gervais hung his head in hilarious disappointment.
