This coming May 19th – I am being “locked up!”. I’m going to jail to help raise money for the Muscular Dystrophy Association and I need your help. If I raised $3,200 they’ll let me out – otherwise I’m staying until that money is raised! I received a letter from the little boy that I’ll be helping and this is his photo and what his letter said:
Hello! My name is Kelby and I am 11 years old. My favorite time of summer is MDA Summer Camp. I get to meet new frineds and so some fun things. I like to swim in the pool. I like to take motorcycle rids and mos of all I like the firefighters and their fire trucks. Last year the firefighters cooked supper for us and it was really good. That was my favorite part. I would not be able to go to camp if it wasn’t for your help. Thank you for helping me raise money for me to be able to go to camp – Kelby Oakley
I am asking for you to donate to help get me out of jail. You can donate online – right here – or you can come out to our offices on May 19th at 11am and donate in person. At 11am the police will be there to take me away and Jean and I (for a while) will have Krispy Kreme donuts for all that help Kelby get to camp and help keep me out of Jail!
