Okay, so here’s the deal. I’ve been “sent behind bars”. I’ll actually be doing my time the 2nd Wednesday in December. The purpose? Raising money for Jerry’s Kids.
I’ve got a goal of $1,500. Think I can raise it? Here’s what the dollars go toward.
I’m not looking for one person to give $1,500. I’m not even looking for 15 people to give $100. Of course, I won’t argue if either ends up happening.
What I’m looking for are 300 people willing to give $5.
For every $30 raised, they can offer a flu shot to a child with Muscular Dystrophy. A flu shot that could save a life. MD children are much more vulnerable because of their weakened respiratory muscles, so the swine flu has posed an especially dangerous threat this year.
Seriously. I know you probably get asked for money regularly. And usually it comes with a promise of overpriced popcorn or cookie dough. Not offering anything here, although if you give now I won’t have to call you from jail. 😉
$5. That’s a cheap lunch. Skip one.
