Dj’s and heroes and antics oh my!


On August 20th, 2009, SMD and The Easter Seals will be hosting a fundraising event, enabling 80 Manitobans to become superheroes for the day!

In order to qualify, each participant must raise a minimum of $1500.00

Jay Richardson (you can follow him on twitter @jayatcurve), morning dj on Curve 94.3 FM here in Winnipeg, has set a personal goal of $2500.00  If he succeeds, his co-hostess with the mostest sarah (follow on twitter @sarahfromcurve), will adorn him in an outfit of her choice.

I’m thinking, ballerina, or chicken.  Just throwin’ it out there.

Now here is they why.

Back on May 9th of this year, I helped put on a fundraiser for Bernie Wolfe Community School.  It was a 12 hour long, swing-a-thon/family fun day.  One of our larger money makers was the dunk tank, and Jay generously volunteered to step forward.

Here’s the rub.

On May 9th, it snowed.  It was wicked cold, flakes swirling, and Jay, who had no attachment to the event, the community or the people involved, got up on that platform in 5º weather, and smiled through the whole thing.

Because of him, and people like him, we raised $13,000 that day.

Jay

If you look carefully, you can actually see ice droplets forming on his brow.  Every other individual who hit the tank that day, wore a wet suit.  Jay toughed it out.

I feel obligated to him, and have undying respect for him, and any cause he represents.

I’m begging you all to support him in his efforts, and really.  Don’t you think he’ll look amazing in tights?

I’ll start the ball rolling.

I pledge $50

Go.

Thank you so much!
