I Need Your Help….
I have something to tell you. I have been reluctant to bring it up but the time is drawing near.
I’m going behind bars.
Yes, that’s right — me….in jail.
Do you know what happens to nice, kind guys like me in the slammer?
But this is no joke.
For those of you that know me or have been following this blog for a while you know it’s not the first time. 😦
Here’s the low-down.
Every day, kids and adults are diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, ALS and related diseases that take away the most basic freedoms – the freedom to walk, talk, hug and even breathe.
Can you imagine?
Unable to walk or talk?
So on March 22nd I am doing a little time, to do a lot of good by being a Jailbird at a Muscular Association Lock-Up to help give those freedoms back.
Please, please, please consider making a donation towards my bail and support me, and the thousands of kids and adults who will be served by MDA this year.
They set my bail at $2000!
It’s easy — just click on this secure link to my web page to make a tax-deductible donation.
That’s right, your thoughtful gift is tax-deductible.
Meaning, for you here in the US, you can get your money back.
Look out your window today and notice the kids playing. Then think of one small child on the side that is unable to play or keep up or just do normal things because of Muscular Association.
I am so grateful for the gift of no limitations with the body I was born with. I would like to do a little something for those that were not as fortunate.
How about you?
Would you consider paying it forward too?
Thank you in advance for joining me as I fight for everyday freedoms for individuals with muscular dystrophy.
If you have any questions or comments please let me know below.
For those of you that are thinking, ‘Fine. let him rot in jail.’ Well the MDA has a link where you can pay for that as well.
Hi Jessica, how is my fav triathlete? thanks for checking this out. Twice! I’m afraid I’m not much of a fundraiser. I guess I’m a sucker for any child diseases now. I hope you are doing good and surviving the storms. All the best to you!
I read this the other day on my phone and at first you REALLY had me going! Like, I thought, what??! This *can’t* be for real! But actually, I’m glad it is. Err… I’m glad that since such horrible things as ALS and muscular dystrophy exist, that there are wonderful people like you who care enough to do something about it. Sounds like a great event!
I’ve got the jailhouse blues
Boy, doing hard time indeed.
🙂 I will. All I am going to do is call people for bail money and eat. It gets me out of work for two hours. I hope you are doing well. Have a great weekend!
Be careful in there! 🙂
Thanks Maricel… Actually someone nominated me for this. They actually come to your work and pick you up in a police car.. I hope you are doing well. Thanks for dropping by.
Such a noble cause, Andy. Congrats on being a jailbird. 🙂
You are glad?? @#&@+.. Yes actually its at a local school and Texas Roadhouse supplies a buffet to snack on. So I spend all lunch calling numbers for bail inbetween trips up for more BBQ.. 🙂 thanks for thinking about this and the kids with MDA Jessica.
Such a fun event. I’m so glad you’re getting locked up!
