Noooo, it’s not because of what I’ve been writing here on the blog (yet).
Don’t worry, it is all in good fun. But it is also for a good cause.
I’m asking you to help me raise ‘bail’ to support Jerry’s Kids and the Muscular Dystrophy Association.
Next Thursday morning (September 17th), I’ll be carted away from Lowell’s to a mysterious destination a few blocks away, and the nice folks at MDA won’t let me out until I’ve raised $2,000. That’s enough to help a child with a wheelchair or leg braces.
I’ve never tried fund-raising before, so this is a brand-new experience for me. And $2,000 sounds like an awful lot to raise. And I have procrastinated because I wasn’t sure how to ask for your help.
All of which means you will earn my eternal respect and gratitude if you can help me raise the necessary funds to get out of jail.
If you are interested and able, I’d sure appreciate your contribution at my MDA Lock-up page. Any amount will help. And if, in these tough times, you feel that you can’t donate, that’s OK — please help me by spreading the word through Twitter, Facebook, and email.
Thank you so much for your support of a great cause.
