  11. 11. Why suddenly is this NOT happening? Understanding that the name of a campaign called, “Sponsor My Balls” might be controversial, Tony contacted the WWF for approval before advertising and was granted it. However on Friday April 13 th he received a disturbing phone call from another WWF staff member who informed him that he no longer had permission to perform at the climb as the name sends a different message to the WWF’s sponsors. While Tony understands this he is frustrated by the change and regrets that he will now likely not be able to raise the $10,000 he was hoping for. Knowing that this is still a great cause, he still encourages people to sponsor him and the WWF and still looks forward to the climb.
