Trending: Amazon Go automated retail store handles a crowd on opening morning — and the only line was outside

It’s that time of year when members of the tech community give back. But RealNetworks executive Matt Hulett, who runs the company’s GameHouse unit, almost gave back a little too much in a stunt Tuesday morning.

To cap a fundraising effort by RealNetworks for Northwest Harvest, Hulett and RealNetworks Chief Marketing Officer Judy Bitterli dove into the frigid waters of Lake Washington.

As you’ll see in the video below, Hulett nearly lost his swim trunks in the process.

As part of the recent campaign, employees at RealNetworks surpassed an internal goal and raised more than $63,000 for Northwest Harvest. That will provide more than 282,000 meals in Washington state.

Now that’s what we call taking a crack at hunger.
