In December, we told about SB Nation's Syracuse blog, Troy Nunes Is An Absolute Magician, raising more than $40,000 to purchase Texas Bowl tickets for underpriveleged Houston-area youth. Earlier this month, Sean Keeley announced that the initiative will return home with the goal of purchasing 20 season tickets for youth to attend Orange games in the Carrier Dome in 2014.

The campaign, #CuseTixForKids II, has two giving levels: $44 and $100. As of the time of this writing, Keeley and the TNIANM crew is less than $1,000 from their goal. If you would like to donate, you can do so from the official GoFundMe page here and earn a shout out on Twitter or free signed copy of Keeley's book

According to Syracuse.com, Keeley will consider ways to enhance the kids' experience once the goal is met. 

"At that point, we'll just think about it," Keeley said. "Whatever we have extra, we'll want to put toward this. Whether that be T-shirts, some other bonus, helping out on transportation costs, whatever it is. We'll make sure that money goes to the best of its use."

Syracuse kicks off the 2014 season against Villanova, but the kids could also get a chance to see Maryland, Florida State, Louisville, NC State and Duke as part of the promotion.
