    DUMPSTER FIST BUMP
    … an ancient ritual. Professor Dumpster will (gently) fist bump the dumpster (on the inside) while whispering your full birth name. Rumored to bring good luck. Most importantly as a backer, you’ll be linked to the project for the duration. You're on the list and part of the team. At this level and above your name will be placed on our 'Friends of Dumpster' page on the dumpsterproject.org website at the end of the successful campaign!
