Jail or Jerry’s Kids
Filed under: This 'n' That
A warrant has been issued for my arrest! I have been charged with having a big heart and will be apprehended on August 17th. As one of the “Most Wanted” I am going to be “Locked Up” to benefit the Muscular Dystrophy Association. You can help by contributing to my bail. They may even let me out on good behavior. My bail has been set at $1800, just enough to send three children to MDA summer camp. They tell me that I have an opportunity for immediate release for good behavior if bail is raised prior to the court date.
Don’t get confused. I have Multiple Sclerosis, not Muscular Dystrophy, but I have never felt right raising money for my own causes. And quite honestly, there are so many causes that I am usually immune to these solicitations. But these people got my attention with their novel approach (I think they are actually planning to send a car to “pick me up and take me away” on August 18th), and it is for children who would otherwise be denied a wonderful summer camp experience, an experience I loved but took for granted as a privileged and healthy youngster, so I agreed to participate. I can accept cash, check, or credit card donations (contact me via email if you want to send the donation c/o me), or you can donate online by going to this special page on the MDA website that is encrypted and protected by Verisign.
I promise that fundraising will not be a regular feature at DevraDoWrite, but it would be great if just this once you’d like to help out some kids who really could use a little joy in their lives.
